The La Sportiva Katana is a versatile, velcro climbing shoe that balances sensitivity, precision and structure, making it ideal for intermediate climbers. 

One shoe that truly does it all, the technical La Sportiva Katana shoe has an innovative Velcro closure system which allows for a precise and comfortable fit and easy on/off, also thanks to the large heel pull-on loops which can also be used to easily attach the shoes to a harness or rucksack. The Katana has an inspiring foot-hugging feel straight from the box due to the less aggressive asymmetric fit, making it a good option for those who have found more aggressively shaped shoes to be too uncomfortable for extended use. As with most La Sportiva's, the Katana is fairly narrow around the ball of the foot and tends to suit climbers with narrower feet better than those with wide feet. The uppers are made from a blend of leather and synthetic microfibres, meaning that comfort and consistent fit are ensured straight away. 

If you're after a shoe that can handle the wide variety of rock types that British climbing has to offer then these could be a wise choice. Well suited to intermediate level climbers looking for a shoe comfortable and supportive enough for multi-pitch routes, and yet technical enough to cope with more advanced sport climbing, bouldering and indoor use, the Katana is a great all-round rock boot.

Great all rounder

Been wearing these for years and must have had at least 8 pairs. Perfect fit, like they have been specially made for me. Not the most technical shoe - not the best for heel hooks - but they’re great on most things, especially thin edges. Have other shoes but I always come back to these. Go to shoe for most climbing.

Excellent Trad Shoes

Had these once before about 10 years ago and really liked them then. New version doesn’t disappoint - excellent shoe for long trad routes. Will buy again!

Alles in Ordnung!

Der Schuh kam zügig und hat eine gute Qualität, ist aber einen Tick größer als sein Vorgängermodel. Aber dafür kann ja rockrun nichts ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
