La Sportiva Katana Lace Climbing Shoes
With a slightly downturned and asymmetrical shape, the La Sportiva
Katana Lace works best as an all-around shoe that is well suited for most types of climbing. The slight aggressiveness is good for performance on edges and pockets but doesn't sacrifice when you're jamming cracks. A good step up from an entry-level shoe, the Katana exists right on the cusp of performance but without sacrificing much comfort. Its tubular construction gives you the performance of a lined shoe with the comfort of an unlined shoe, so you don't have to sacrifice to get it all. So if you're looking for something a little more aggressive but don't want to sacrifice in other categories, the La Sportiva Katana Lace is a good all-around option that's well suited to all types of climbing.
