/ La Sportiva Katana Lace-ups
I don't know, but I'd be very intested to know aswell!
What shop were selling them? If it's anywhere between Bristol and Portland - I can get there! Thanks
Looks like they're a replacement for the old Barracudas (am I mistaken in thinking they were essentially a lace-up Katana?).
Had a quick look on line but can't see anybody selling them. Must not have been released yet.
Had an email from lyon to say these will be available from March.

They told me April. Oh well, March or April I look forward to trying them on. I'll be due some new shoes about then and with my birthday being in May the Mrs may well be getting some not-so-subtle hints if they fit well.
any one know if the katana LACE UPs are out yet??
where can i buy?
They've got some of these at the Castle now - tried some on, and they're niiice. A bit more down-turned than the velcro one, and a bit stiffer. I'll start saving my pennies!
Tried the Miura velcro's at Rock On's boot demo @ Redpoint on saturday. Best shoe I've ever worn. Fortunately I some how manage to win the comp so get a pair of these lovely shoes. I've always been a 5.10 man but these beat everything I tried on. Altho the Teams are the next best thing.
to see if anyone with velcros has tried on the lace ups and can comment on the sizing of the lace ups compared to the velcros.
Nobody round here stocks the katana, so I don't have high hopes being able to actually try on lace-up version any time soon..
Was trying a pair on the weekend - they seem a bit wider than the velcro ones, but the elastic tongue thing makes it harder to get a fat foot inside. Feels nice and snug once it's there, though. The length seems pretty similar - size 41 works for me in both - but I reckon that the lace-ups might not give as much on account of the P3 thing and the elastic inner. Just a guess, mind...
Cheers that helps, will give me a bit more confidence to order a pair, thanks
