Now, if only there was some stock of Sportiva climbing shoes available to buy somewhere........
The Futura is available at selected retailers only. Try

The Castle Climbing Centre http://www.castle-climbing.co.uk/
Other La Sportiva shoes are now generally available but they’ve been so popular that demand is hard to keep up with!
Ask your local La Sportiva retailer and they should be able to sort stock.
Why would you only have selected retailers selling the Futura? Why not just make all La Sportiva retailers able to sell them?
Ive stopped buying la sportiva shoes, not really my choice but if you cant get them, what can you do?
> Why would you only have selected retailers selling the Futura? Why not just make all La Sportiva retailers able to sell them?
Presumably, given all the trouble with stock they seem to have had over the past year, they can only make a limited number and allocate those to shops likely to sell the most.
