La Sportiva Python Climbing Shoe
The La Sportiva Python is a competition and artificial wall climbing shoe that combines high performance with comfort for modern climbers who want to push their level on boulder problems, overhanging sport routes, technical face climbs, and in climbing gyms.
The La Sportiva Python has been designed to be as sensitive and as soft as possible with maximum performance on heel hooks and toe hooks. The sole is only 3.5mm thick and no lining is used at all, and La Sportiva have given it a 5/5 out on their sensitivity scale. Great for tiny, frictionless holds on overhanging problems! The sole has been split in the middle to make the shoe as soft as possible for technical manoeuvres like toe-hooking and general hooking onto steep holds, and the velcro strap secures the heel when heel hooking and blocking.
The new Python has an improved toe patch for better toe-hooking performance and boasts a more comfortable fit than before.
The Python is designed to be fit really snugly, but keep in mind that it's unlined suede leather upper will stretch up to a full size. So size appropriately!

Like a slipper for your feet! Not as much support on small foot holds compared to the La Sportiava solutions.
Coming from a katana and tenaya tarifa the pythons are now my go to shoes.
Super sticky rubber, edges and sticks onto the smallest of foot holds! Smears well and is super sensitive. Mainly use it for indoor sports climbing and bouldering. Love it!!
Very good shoes for indoor climbing as well as outdoor overhangs and sandstone. Not so good for limestone slabs.
I like your service to figure it out a number of climbing shoes based on other brands.... Very satisfied!
Amazing outdoor bouldering shoes. Extremely sticky. BEST fit would be for narrow feet. I have medium size feet where they fit perfectly for my solution and instinct VS. I can continue to wear the solution and instinct VS after doing a climb but for the python, they have to be taken off after 1 climb.
You can still squeeze into the python but depending on how wide the front of your foot is, for me, the pinky toe and the one next to it will hurt.
I downsize 0.5 from my 40EU solution and 1.5 from my 41EU instinct VS.
Highly recomend this climbing shoes, very good fit.
