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

Fitted correctly the La Sportiva Genius provides a precise, close yet surprisingly comfortable fit. 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. The laces allow a precise fit and might be a great alternative for those with lower volume feet to the Futura. 

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.

Best shoes I've tried

This is the first time I've bought 2 identical pairs of shoes in a row. Went up half a size as I'm pretty sure my last pair was giving me arthritis, and they're much better. I have very narrow feet, and these are supposedly for wide feet, but they're the best-fitting shoe I've found. I mostly do indoor bouldering, and these give you confidence and feeling on the tiniest holds that I haven't experienced with any other shoe. I can definitely recommend the 'no edge' technology for those trying more aggressive problems. As far as going outdoor, I've used them a few times and the feel is again great, but they can wear out quite quickly on rock.
