The La Sportiva Katana Lace is, as the name suggests, the lace up version of the original Katana. Therefore you can expect them to work well through the varied disciplines of climbing through easy and hard grades, La Sportiva have even added some extra technical details into the shoe which enhance the performance to even greater levels.
The La Sportiva Katana Lace has the tried and tested P3 system which will ensure that your new shoes maintain the same downturned profile throughout their life. An innovative construction method places a lining between the rand and the leather upper, this means you will get the great breathing properties and precision of an unlined shoe with the minimal stretch of a lined shoe.
The incorporation of the laces means you can tailor the internal volume of the shoe more accurately to the shape of your feet creating an even greater fit and feel of precision. To cap off this already brilliant shoe is the Vibram XS Edge rubber which is great in most situations and excels on those smaller holds.
