Katana Women's

SP20M000500W34
(9)
$134.14

The eagerly awaited women's version of the La Sportiva Katana climbing shoe finally makes its first UK appearance. In terms of shape this shoe looks very much like the original Katana, however women and men with narrow feet should find that there is less bagging of the upper when the straps are pulled tight.
The La Sportiva Katana Women's is an all round climbing shoe that is comfortable enough for beginners but technical enough for those climbing at a high level. The men's version of this shoe has always been one of our top sellers, and so we are tipping this shoe to do very well.
Sportiva have used lined this shoe with two different materials to ensure the right balance is struck between comfort and practicality. The front portion of the shoe is lined with Pacific; a stretchy synthetic fibre that will provide more comfort for your toe knuckles, whearas the rear portion uses Dentex (which is apparently has a top secret formula), which has two-way stretch, and should provide better moisture management than the Pacific (the fibre, not the ocean).
The upper is part leather (the pink bit) and part lorica (the toe box). Leather has a bit of stretch which helps with comfort, whereas the lorica toe box ensures that the action-end of the shoe keeps its shape. The rubber is 4mm Vibram XS Grip 2.
If you are looking for a low volume shoe with great edging capabilities that will serve you well indoors or out, on walls or boulders, then the Katana Women's is a great shout.

How I choose the correct size?

All climbing shoe models fit differently. We put together our 'shoeculator' to help you find the right size in a new model, compared to your old climbing shoes or street shoes.

Choose from the options below to find your size in the La Sportiva Katana Women's
Climbing Shoe
or
Street Shoe

This sizing advice is based on two pairs of brand new shoes. Leather shoes tend to stretch more than synthetic shoes. When switching from synthetic to leather you may want to select a smaller size.

Cofortable shoes! a bit tight at first but after worn in is perfect (for me with long narrow feet) these stretch about a size after so order a pair one size less than your normal street shoes is recommended. will definitely buy again

Excellent shoes, I have low volume feet and these fit nice and snug. Technical shoe that sticks to anything but comfortable for a beginner

Amazing shoes!!
I've had 2 pairs of the blue ladies katanas over the last 5 years and the pink ones are just as great. I haven't changed size, I'm still taking a 39 (my normal UK size is 7.5)… If you have skinny, low volume feet and can't find a pair of shoes that don't spin and slip when you're edging then these shoes are for you! They are the only shoe on my feet that are any good for really technical stuff and they let me stand on anything - point and edge. Now on my third pair, I feel confident saying that you can expect some stretch so be patient with painful toes at the start, they will give.
