Shoe Conversion Size Chart

The La Sportiva Kataki climbing shoe is a versatile, high performance climbing shoe, designed for steep edging and precise footwork. 

An evolution of the longstanding and popular Katana Lace, the base last of this shoe has been refined to include some of La Sportiva’s recent technological developments, to make for a more sensitive shoe which is more adaptable to both foot shape and terrain.

This versatile lace-up performs similarly to the Otaki, but features a lace closure system for dialling in a custom fit. Made for steep edging and precise footwork, the Kataki excels at toeing-in on micro-edges while the innovative S-Heel™ construction keeps heel hooks feeling secure.

    Great Quality Shoes

    Very Happy with the Katakis, coming from a pair of Katana Velcros in a 6.5 UK I bought these half a size larger, I am street shoe 7.5 so didn't downsize much. I could have probably gone down to a 6.5 uk to crimp my feet a bit more but they are broken in and don't feel baggy anywhere. They feel far more comfortable than the Katanas thanks to the cushioned tongue and they fit my feet very well, especially in the heel and you can feel the sole ******* right into the arch of your foot. They are a little more narrow than the Katanas so I do feel a bit of pain in my forefoot after a while. I mainly climb indoors and they edge very well so really like them when route climbing, the only negative is that they are fairly stiff so smearing while bouldering is not perfect although they are still fairly new, i have ordered some Skwamas to boulder in, I will continue to use these for top roping.
