The lace up version of the famous Katana model offers the same multifunctional use with additional technical solutions enabling the product to provide even higher levels of performance.
The P3 System maintains the downturned shape unaltered for the life of the shoe. The innovative construction method inserts the lining between the leather uppers and the rubber rand, a solution which brings together the structural advantages of a lined shoe and the breathability and precision of an unlined shoe. The tongue is made using a soft and breathable material and the lacing system allows for optimum regulation of the internal volume of the shoe: all elements aimed at providing a great overall fit. The Vibram XS Edge sole allows to lightened the load on smaller holds. Katana lace is the perfect addition to La Sportiva's climbing range.
Upper: A combination of suede leather and Lorica, tubular construction
Lining: Front and back Pacific lining
Midsole: Laspoflex 1,1 mm combined to the P3 System
