La Sportiva Finale VS Climbing Shoe
The La Sportiva Finale VS is a comfortable, easy-to-put-on climbing shoe - perfect for beginner climbers in the gym or on long multi-pitch routes. The La Sportiva Finale VS features an extra thick (5mm) sole, making it extremely durable. Ideal both for beginners who want their shoes to last as well as for multipitch climbs where shoes tend to wear out more quickly. It's a also a little bit softer than the Finale, so a bit better for the gym.
The Finale VS uses the 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. And 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. Being completely suede leather, the Finale VS is also as breathable as possible for the best comfort when climbing in hot weather on long routes.
The Finale VS' upper is made from unlined suede leather, so you can expect it to stretch up to a full size. Once it's broken in, you'll have a completely custom fit. La Sportiva also recommend that you fit this shoe slightly looser for the most comfortable fit. And, if you're looking for a slightly stiffer laced version, check out the Finale.

Vibram XS Edge
Developed for maximum support, Vibram XS Edge rubber allows you to focus your weight on the tiniest of holds. Thanks to improved plastic deformation resistance, XS Edge keeps its shape through hours of repeated abuse, in hot or cold weather. Great for use in conditions where secure edging is paramount, it provides the best balance of performance and durability.
