I'm climbing 7a and Katana Lace is for my Top! I have a slim leg and Katana Lace shoes sit superbly.

My first pair of climbing shoes i've ever bought and they have made me a 5.10 climber. I learned how to lead in these shoes and they have never failed me in a tight spot. I'm climbing 5.11 now and I've had the shoes for 6 months now, and they're still working as well as the first day, the edging i do is perfect for indoor sport climbing. I RECOMMEND TO ALL!

I had an older pair of begginer la sportivas that served me well, so for my next pair I checked out the other models they had to offer. I tested several at the gym, and the katana felt the best between it, the miura, and the futura, so I bought it. The fit is excellent, and the laces clamp down on every part of my foot. The sizing is true to normal shoe size, so go a half size down from your comfortable sneakers (note: I've got wide feet and high arches, so this may not hold true if you have narrow feet). On day one I blasted through several boulder problems in the V3-V5 range outdoors. This shoe performed equally well in pockets, tiny edges, and toe-in cracks. After 15 minutes I was confident using whatever I had at my disposal with the shoe. This is by far the most versatile, comfortable climbing shoe I've ever worn. My only complaint is the slightly steep price, but I guarantee you it's worth it.

For an all-around shoe, the Katana Lace is an outstanding compromise between comfort and performance. I can rock these shoes anywhere, whether it's crack climbing, steep sport, bouldering, or slab. Every climber needs a pair of these in their arsenal!
