London's largest range of women's climbing shoes including La Sportiva

Cold Mountain Kit London has an extensive range of women's technical climbing shoes in store. We know that climbing is a sport where gender is no barrier to how hard you can climb. That's why we are so stoked to be able to finally offer the female (or lower volume) foot a truly decent range of technical climbing shoes.

The La Sportiva women's range has expanded in 2018 to include the new Skwama and Otaki plus the updated Katana and, for the first time in the UK, the Solution. All with the fit and design specific to a lower volume foot.

See more about all the La Sportiva range on our website:

A modernisation of the classic all-rounder the Katana velcro.

Low volume and XS Grip rubber make them a little softer and more responsive for lighter frames.

All the technical power of the standard Skwama in low volume version to suit the female foot.

Packed full of all the same powerful features as the standard Solution, the sole unit is slightly thinner, 3.5mm, to make them more responsive for a lighter build.

Come in to the shop and speak to our expert staff about choosing the right shoe for your climbing and see our huge range of women's and unisex climbing shoes available.
