Kataki

Kataki

$170.00
This versatile lace-up shoe performs similarly to the Otaki, but features a lace closure system for dialing 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.

Edging Machine
Not quite a lace-up Otaki, the fit feels much different. Closer to a Katana Lace. I size up 1/2 size from my Otakis. These are an excellent utility shoe that can do anything very well. The toe profile is quite narrow and fits well in thin cracks and small pockets. The heel feels more shallow and lower volume than the Otaki as well, I prefer this fit as it is more secure. Perfect shoe for just about anything. Laces make it a great Trad shoe and provide limitless options for adjustment. Edging is where this shoe really excels. Stiff enough to provide support on technical footwork for long pitches without lacking sensitivity. A great balance that is difficult to achieve.

Like a Miura on drugs
So here it is, the lace version of the Otaki. This means you get an aggressive edging machine with the added comfort of laces. In my opinion this shoe performs like the Miura, has a way better heel and is more comfy! Size this like your other LaSportiva shoes or half a size bigger than unlined shoes.
