Despite their downturned shape, La Sportiva Katana Lace women's climbing shoes are comfortable all-day workhorses that perform well on slabs, twist easily into thin cracks and excel on steep routes.


  • Slightly downturned toes and subtle asymmetry ensure you can hook into pockets or exploit the tiniest edges while providing unrivaled comfort for their performance level
  • Tubular construction with P3 technology provides excellent comfort and performance
  • Highly breathable tongues work in conjunction with the linings for moisture management
  • Half-length outsole design supports female climbers of all weights and sizes
  • 4 mm thick Vibram® XS Edge rubber outsoles provide friction and stability
  • Narrow heel design increases heel hooking precision while maintaining the same known fit and feel
  • Updated heel pattern with increased rubber coverage improves grip for heel hooking

Sizing Notes

For rock climbing shoes: Choose soft shoes two to three sizes smaller than your street shoe size. We recommend you fit your trad shoes one to two sizes under your street shoe size. Remember to factor in stretch. Unlined slip-lasted shoes tend to stretch about one full size. Lined shoes stretch about a half size. Remember: a well-fit comfortable shoe will work better than an ill-fitting tighter shoe.

For boots: Add one half size to your street shoe size. You should be able to slip one finger behind your heel when you are standing up with the boot unlaced and your toes touching the front. If the boot is too short, your toes will get smashed walking downhill. Too long and your heel will slide up and down and give you blisters.
