La Sportiva Genius

Size: EU 35

The La Sportiva Genius is a technical and performance, lace up climbing shoe from the 'no-edge' range, aimed at top-end sport climbing.

Providing a precise and close, yet surprisingly comfortable fit when fitted correctly, the La Sportiva Genius lace-ups might provide a great 'no edge' alternative for those with lower volume feet to the Futura. The suede leather/microfibre combination upper is well bolstered with rubber just where you'd want it, meaning the shoe will hold its shape even after extensive use, as well as giving enhanced performance on heel and toe-hooks. 

Allowing you to get closer to the rock, the 'no edge' technology gives the Genius three distinct improvements: increased sensitivity, homogenous pressure and adaptability. They can basically take on anything you throw their way. The Laspoflex midsole combined to the P3 Patent System means the shoe retains its push-pull toe power throughout its lifespan, and provides solid support even if the shoe is not worn excessively tightly. This construction feature, along with the speed-lacing system, makes the shoe adaptable to a broad spectrum of foot shapes. 

No-Edge Technology in Detail

  • Sensitivity is improved thanks to the reduced layer of rubber - the No-Edge construction system reduces the distance between the foot and the rock surface, enhancing foot sensitivity on holds.
  • Specifically developed to provide "homogenous pressure", whereby the absence of any edges allows the foot to exert an all-round equal push on the inner side of the shoe.
  • The No-Edge design maximises the surface area in contact with the foot under all conditions.
