The La Sportiva Testarossa is a high performance classic. It uses both natural and synthetic materials to provide a combination of comfort and technicality. The internal lining is only featured in the toe box and heel cup so that the leather can let your feet breath and offer comfort whilst the microfibre gives a precise and permanent fit where it matters. A P3 platform, 3D Hytrel midsole and Vibram XS Grip2 outsole combined means you will get support and high tension throughout the shoe (with little degradation over time) and the asymmetric lacing system allows for a tight and precise fit. The La Sportiva Testarossa is a great shoe for steep or technical sport climbing and bouldering.
