La Sportiva Katana Climbing shoes
Katana is a versatile climbing shoe from La Sportiva - pure magic on the boulder and for almost all other type of climbing. The choice of material in the sole and upper as well as the velcro closure make it a climbing shoe that can be adapted to almost any purpose and type of foot.
A rubber band has been wrapped around the heel, providing optimum support around the heel and under the foot. To make the shoe durable, breathable and water resistant, the upper is made of a blend of suede and synthetic leather. And to refine the shoe's adjustability, La Sportiva has designed the velcro closure with two opposing velcro straps, each with its own wide area where they are attached. This allows the Velcro straps to be tensioned both just above the ankle or more diagonally. In other words, the katana can be adjusted to completely enclose the foot.
