The La Sportiva Katana is a fantastic all rounder, mixing together precision with sensitivity in a shoe that can be used in all forms of rock climbing.
It features an opposing velcro closure system, an upper constructed from a mixture of suede leather and lorica (a man-made material which shares many of the characteristics of leather) and an internal synthetic lining which is designed to minimise stretch.
The shape of the shoe fits most feet as it’s a medium size shape and added with a good amount of asymmetry this also offers a nice balance of comfort and performance.
The rubber used on the sole is Vibram XS Grip2, paired with a special midsole featuring a prehensile area under the toe providing optimal edging support, increasing sensitivity.
