La Sportiva Kataki Climbing Shoe

The La Sportiva Kataki is an all-round-performance crag shoe designed for complete versatility and adaptability on long, varied climbs with both vertical slabs and overhanging faces. It's actually the child of two of La Sportiva's most popular shoes - the Katana Lace and the Otaki; taking the versatile downturned front section of the Katana Lace and the technical performance of the Otaki's heel, the Kataki is more technical for steeper climbs but not so aggressive that it under performs on edges and vertical climbs. A true high-performance all-rounder.

The Kataki has two of La Sportiva's signature features along with the Vibram XS Edge rubber that's designed for stability and control on tiny holds. The first is the P3 rand system, which adds extra structural support to the shoe to ensure it doesn't lose its shape over time, as non-synthetic climbing shoes tend to do. The second is the S-Heel, a rubber shell that encapsulates the heel containing an incompressible piece of rubber, which prevents the shoe's rubber from deforming when hooked or blocked - that means a loss of power.

The Kataki is suede leather / synthetic with linings at the front and back. Expect there to be up to a half size of stretch and size appropriately. La Sportiva recommend you wear this shoe on the loose side for a comfort-performance fit.

Features

Kataki Climbing Shoe

Vibram XS Edge™

Rubber compound built for maximum performance on micro holds and extreme edging. This formula uses an improved plastic deformation resistance that ensures the utmost stability, rigidity, and support on footholds in hot or cold weather, as well as generally increasing durability.

Kataki Climbing Shoe

P3® Permanent Power Platform

After intensive abuse, downturned climbing shoes can start to lose their distinctive shape. La Sportiva’s P3 rand system prevents from this happening so your shoe maintains its powerful profile, permanently.

Kataki Climbing Shoe

S-Heel™

An incompressible piece of rubber is placed on the inside of the shoe’s heel cup. This prevents loss of power during heel hooks and blocks by prohibiting deformation of the heel rubber on the hold and heel torsion inside the shoe.
