- "A Crusher of Crazy Cracks, Burly Boulders and not too bad on those plastic things that they screw into walls."
I've had a pair of Katanas for the past 3 years. I bought them as a somewhat cocky 16 year old who thought he was an absolute crusher. On my first day out I decided that they were called katanas because my feet felt like they were getting stabbed by a Japanese sword. I have since found out that, as is standard in climbing, pain is sometime necessary. After breaking in these shoes they fit excellently. I have used them on 14 pitch climbs in Nevada, perfect splitters in the Utah desert, granite flakes in Idaho, sketchy sand stone in Colorado and most recently on a run-out climb called "nervous in suburbia" in Moab. The toes had finally worn through and as such I have moved on to a pair of Testarossas (Uber Agro) that have taught my feet what real pain feels like.
Yes, I would recommend this product.
