La Sportiva Testarossa Climbing Shoe

The La Sportiva Testarossa has a lot to live up to, being named after a Ferrari. It looks good for starters. But the Testarossa, with an aggressive design built by La Sportiva specifically for toe and heel hooking power on technical sport climbing, bouldering, and overhanging and steep climbs, must have more to it than that enticing Ferrari red?

You can get a sense of the Testarossa's design when you compare it to La Sportiva's new Miura XX, which is similarly aggressive and laced and built for long, technical sport routes. The Testarossa features a softer midsole, increased sensitivity, and Vibram's XS Grip2 rubber (friction over edging); essentially, it will perform better on more overhanging and steeper climbs and problems where you need be able to feel and grip onto small footholds, and will be easier to bend and flex onto toe hooks. So, a better climbing shoe for shorter, more technical routes!

As for features, the Testarossa uses the P3® rand system that helps to maintain its downturned shape after heavy use, a 3D cupped Hytrel midsole with a figure-8 slingshot rand that helps you stick toe and heel hooks, and an asymmetrical lacing system up to the toe for the most secure fit of your most powerful piggy - the big toe.

The Testarossa is lined in the toe and heel, so expect it to stretch up to half a size, maybe a little more. La Sportiva recommend you fit these shoes on the tighter side for a performance fit.
