La Sportiva Finale Women's Climbing Shoe
The La Sportiva Finale Women's has the same beginner comfort and high level of durability for long multipitch climbs as the men's Finale, except with a ladies-specific fit. The volume of the Finale Women's will be slightly lower so as to provide a more conformed fit to the female foot. Women and men are created equal, but clearly the foot is the exception!
The La Sportiva Finale Women's uses an extra thick 5mm sole for the maximum level of durability. Vibram XS Edge rubber combined with La Sportiva's Powerhinge technology, the combination of which equals maximum power on edges and tiny footholds. XS Edge is a much harder rubber that allows for less deformation when loaded, meaning more stability and control. Powerhinge technology is a small hole cut into the sole that limits stretch to only the back half of the shoe, which provides even more balance on micro edges. It's also unlined suede leather, which is the most breathable and comfortable upper you could ask for in a multipitch shoe.
Being unlined suede leather, you can expect it to stretch up to a full size. La Sportiva recommend sizing this shoe loose for the best comfort. If you're looking for velcro or have a wider foot, try the Finale VS Women's. It's a little bit softer, and a bit more ideal for gym climbing!
