Product Features

The La Sportiva Katana Lace climbing shoe has the precision fit that only a lace-up shoe can provide. The Katana combines the much-loved PD55 last with a downturned P3® midsole to provide all-day comfort, and the confidence to stand tall on small knobs.

  • Excels at crack climbing, edging, and all day use
  • Lorica® synthetic leather lacing harness offers an exacting fit and minimizes stretch
  • Highly breathable tongue works in conjunction with the lining for excellent moisture management
  • 4mm Vibram® XS Edge™ rubber compound is firmer (than tackier Grip2) and designed to withstand bending or deforming on edges and chips
  • Permanent Power Platform (P3®) maintains a downturned shape for the life of the shoe
  • More downturned P3® midsole than the original Katana model
  • Tubular construction blends the performance of a lined shoe with the comfort of an unlined shoe

"Used for climbing and bouldering"
These Sportivas were purchased as a gift for my son, for indoor bouldering and climbing. He is satisfied with the fit (bought 1.5 sizes smaller than shoe size) and stated they have become more comfortable with successive use. He has stated he likes the shoes.

Yes, I would recommend this product.

"product excellent, customer service poor"
I ordered these shoes on sale for a Christmas present for my son. I was assured by OMC customer service that if the size was wrong, I could return them, order a new size, and that the sale price for the new size would still be honored. So, the size was wrong, I returned them and ordered the correct size, but was then charged the full price, not the sale price of the original order. Long story short: product was great, OMC customer service did not do what they said they would do. Will not order from OMC again.

Yes, I would recommend this product.
