La Sportiva Katana Women's Climbing Shoe
The La Sportiva Katana Women's is the long-awaited ladies-specific version of the highly popular Katana, the versatile shoe made to perform on everything, from sport cliombing, trad routes, bouldering, and technical faces. Not much has changed on Katana Women's, but the lighter weight suggests La Sportiva have reduced the volume - ideal for both women and men with smaller feet! Pink is power, boys!
The La Sportiva Katana Women's is your classic all-round shoe: moderate downturn, moderate asymmetry, and a medium-stiff midsole, this shoe has comfort and performance for the intermediate and experienced climber alike. The women's version features Vibram XS Grip2 rubber rather than XS Edge, making it stickier and better at performing on steeper climbs. Sportiva have used three different materials in the shoe to achieve maximum comfort: the upper part of the shoe is Lorica, a water-repellent and breathable fabric; the front lining is Pacific, a stretchy material designed to provide more comfort to to the toe knuckles; and in the back is Dentex which is still stretchy but with better moisture management than Pacific.
The La Sportiva Katana Women's is made for the narrow, low-volume foot. La Sportiva also recommend fitting it slightly on the loose side, but bear in mind that its lined interior will stretch up to 1/2 a size.
