high folks, i'm looking to get a new pair of climbing shoes, been looking at a pair of the la sportiva katana's (lace version) as they seem to fit the bill of what im after; techy pair of shoes with a toe down, good for edging but still able to smear on things. just wondering if anyone's got a pair and how much do they stretch out? any help would be much appreciated
In reply to archeryjones: hi, I do have a pair of katana lace,they are really good shoes, I have them about 2 months now, first two weeks it was really painfull to wear them.
They stretched about half a number but I think they will give a bit more
In reply to archeryjones: Hi, I've had the Katana for a couple months as well, they fit my foot really well and am very happy with them. i haven't founf they've stretched much actually, though i did get a very snug fit. The only thing I'll say is that I dont find the rubber very sticky (in comparison with evolv bandit)... or maybe its just my footwork...
