Designed to provide powerful, technical edging AND crack climbing prowess without compromising either. This game changing, mid-height edging machine will take you out of a technical thin hands to rattley fingers crack and out on to the diciest dime edges you can find. Thin padding in the ankle and above the toes protects you in the cracks and the patented P3® platform delivers sensitive yet powerful edging abilities. The toes flat fit is perfect for comfortable crack climbing and the ventilated tongue and lateral rand perforations promote air-flow. We worked with Vibram® on a new rubber compound that works best for technical edging and developed the XS Edge™ compound which holds an edge better on sharp micro edges. This shoe was designed in collaboration with La Sportiva climbing athlete Tommy Caldwell.

 

• Designed for powerful edging and crack climbing performance

• Mid-height covers the malleolus during crack climbing

• Strategically placed foam padding for comfort in cracks

• Patented P3® Permanent Power Platform™ for precise edging

• Ideal terrain: Crack climbing, face climbing and big walls

AWARDS: Alpinist Mountain Standards Award, Climbing Magazine - New and Notable, Gear Institute - Best in Class 2014

Got Granite? Get TC Pro's
What a perfect shoe for hard climbing on long routes. They are comfortable and precise. I am on my third pair or TC Pros (each with several resoles) and they excel at cracks, steep faces, edging and slab climbing. I haven't climbed a granite route with them where I was wishing for another shoe. They hold up better than any other shoe out there.

The Benchmark All-Around Shoe
I have tried many and found no climbing shoe that equals the TC Pro in terms of being very good at a lot of types of climbing. They really shine on small edges and in cracks, and they smear very well on slabs and "imaginary" footholds as well. The shape, last, and volume are not too radical or extreme in any dimension, so the fit is probably going to work for non-radical feet. Don't be bashful about trying on different sizes and hanging out in them - I started with 44s on my 10.5/D+ width street shoe foot, which after breaking in became "too comfortable" for hard stuff but are still great for all day easy/moderate days. I am now in 42.5 size and they are dead solid perfect - skin on the end of the toes touches the inside of the rand, without being scrunched into miserable, blister-inducing contortions - the foot is locked in, and nothing moves one millimeter when placed correctly. Having worn these for several years, I've found they hold up well, take well to resoling, and the glue and whatnot stays stuck. I also think I can tell they have made little tweaks to the design that work - the tongues stay flat, etc.
And hey - The Dawn Wall went in these, and that vegetarian van-driving guy soloed FreeRider in them - pretty good evidence that they will be more than adequate for you too.
Totally recommend them if, as with any shoe, they match your foot shape well enough to get that perfect, Goldilocks fit,.

Good out of the box
I had only worn a very worn, borrowed pair of TC Pros before I got my own. I spent 3 days in City of Rocks climbing in these, and where I thought I would get my ass handed to me by the technical, scary climbs there, I felt really confident. When I got mine, I climbed a full day in Little Cottonwood Canyon with them right out of the box. Although I would prefer a little more broken in, they were still great and very comfortable. It does take a while to break them in, but once you do they are really wonderful, and it's shocking how much you can trust your feet on the tiniest granite footholds. In terms of sizing, I size up a 1-1.5 sizes from sport/bouldering shoes so that they are snug, but not super restrictive.

Best trad shoe!
I have worn the TC Pro AKA Air Tommy, since they first hit the shelves. This shoe performs better than any other shoe on vertical to under vertical terrain. The stiff last allows you to size up if needed to provide all day comfort while still performing well. It's very durable and with an ample amount of rubber you get a great amount of milage out of the shoe.

Why no size 47?
I loved this shoe, but I had to get them stretched as my feet are size 47, and the shoe returned to being tight shortly after having them stretched. Had to return to get shoes that will fit me. Cmon La Sportiva, please make bigger sizes.

Best Granite Climbing Shoe
The TC Pro is hands down the best granite climbing shoe on the market. From offwidths in the Voo to technical slabs. I prefer the TC Pro for any granite outing.

Just wish they were more durable.
Mine split in the toes after 8 months (calculated less than 100 total days of climbing). I really liked how they performed, but SUPER disappointed they didn't even make it to the summer climbing season (purchased them in August 2017 and by the end of April 2018, they are split in the toes). I loved so much about these shoes--comfort, traction, stiffness...but durability/quality is not one of them.

A trad climbers dream shoe!
A truly impressive shoe that is stiff, strait, comfortable, and protects your ankles. A trad climbers dream shoe! No longer do you need to wear a more comfortable miura to perform on small edges and thin cracks, this fella does it all, all day. In cracks i found that the TC Pro's chiseled toe likes to be inserted and once torqued it stood stiff and held its own integrity much better than say the Mythos. On edges this aggressive shoe can camp out all day on micro crimps (like the Miura) thanks to the P3 and xs-edge compound. On slabs this puppy does not fall asleep and is happy to flex into place giving you maximum contact. On overhangs, this just isn't gonna do what the more aggressive downturned shoes can do but they still hold their own in off vertical terrain. In so far as comfort, wow, what did you do to make this feel soo good inside. I'm impressed and as a result this is now my go to trad shoe.
