The Katana has established itself over the years as one of the best ‘do-it-all’ technical climbing shoes, equally at home in the mountains, on the crags, circuit bouldering and at the wall. By incorporating asymmetry and tension into a classic overall shape, without going too overboard, they manage to balance sensitivity, precision and support. The Katanas are constructed from a mix of materials, combining leather and synthetic textiles to provide comfort and performance.

La Sportiva’s sizing is somewhat peculiar compared to that of most other manufacturers. It is not unusual to take their shoes 1½-2 full euro sizes – or more - smaller than your foot measurement. Naturally this varies depending on foot shape, intended use and personal preference.
