La Sportiva Kataki Women's Climbing Shoe

The La Sportiva Kataki Women's is an all-round outdoor crag shoe designed for the perfect balance of technical steep performance and edging power. A blend of two of La Sportiva's most popular shoes, the Otaki and the Katana Lace, the Kataki utilises the versatile downturned front section of the Katana and the performance S-Heel™ of the Otaki, making it perfect for long, varied climbs with both overhanging and vertical sections. This women's version uses XS Grip 2 rubber designed for maximum friction, so expect it to perform slightly better on overhanging routes than the men's.

The Kataki Women's features two of La Sportiva's signature technologies. The first is the P3® Rand System, designed to add 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 Womens' upper 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 Women's Climbing Shoe

Vibram XS Grip2™

Rubber compound built for pure friction, recommended for use where maximum grip is the primary need - bouldering and sport climbing, indoor climbing, or extremely smooth, polished routes.

Kataki Women's 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.

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.

Best climbing shoes

These shoes are the greatest climbing acquisition that I made so far. I climb for almost a year and my last shoes were so tight I could barely stand them. These one are perfect: are tight enough to be able to stay on small edges, but they don't put pressure on your toes or heel (I bought my street number)
Comfortable and precise. And they also look nice. It's a pleasure to climb in them.
I could not yet find them a weak spot.
