The La Sportiva Skwama is soft, super sensitive, down-turned climbing shoe specifically designed for steep terrain, both indoors and out.

This technical, high performance model features an unlined upper, built using a combination of micro-fibre and split leather, to enhance comfort and hold the shape of the shoe over its lifespan. The heel is similar to that used on the Solution, whilst the forefoot incorporates a softer midsole and more asymmetric fit, capped off with the now familiar rubber toe patch.

Closure comes by way of a single Velcro strap, which offers multiple locking positions. The sole features Vibram XS Grip, with a unique split forefoot sole piece to improve contouring to both the foot and rock.

      Really impressed

      This is my second pair of shoes after starting out climbing, my first pair we much less aggressive than these and therefore really transformed my climbing, really recommended with them one month in.

      Great Shoe

      Very Happy with the Skwama, Only used indoors and after about three sessions they are starting to feel comfortable enough in the toe box to avoid having to take them off every few routes. I also own the Katakis and these provide the solution I was hoping for, a bit more sensitive and flexible for smearing etc and easier to take on and off. The xsgrip2 rubber seems to hold a bit better than the XSedge too, presumably they will wear more quickly as a result though which could be the trade off. I wear a 7 1/2 street size and went with these in a 6 UK and so far they seem to be spot on as my toes are reasonably cammed, there are no hot spots and the S-Heel fits my Heel securely. I am finding the Katakis might be slightly narrow for me so get a bit of a squeezing pain, the Skwamas must be a little wider as I don't have that issue with these. Overall very happy with the shoes, plus they arrived very quickly from R&R.

      Good service and good looking shoes

      I received good service from Rock and Run. I haven’t climbed in the shoes yet so I’ve reserved the final star. They need breaking in as well - I tried the ‘shower method’ and found out that the dye on the strap runs when wet. Not a deal breaker but not what you’d expect

      Absolute weapons.

      These shoes are next level! After buying them half a size too big last year, I got scared of them being too soft and went to the Otaki as I thought I needed a stiffer shoe. After now using the Skwamas in the right size, I wish I’d sone so sooner. Grippy, sensitive, and still plenty aggressive. Out of solutions, Otakis and Skwamas, these are now my firm favourites! FYI for sizing - I wear these and Otakis half a size down from my solutions.
