Fantastic medium-aggression shoe!

After wearing through my first pair of climbing shoes (La Sportiva Nagos Womens), I wanted a shoe that was more aggressive and better able to suit my level of climbing. After trying on the Muira and finding that the toe-box was completely the wrong shape for my incredibly narrow foot, I tried the Katana and I'm not sure I ever want to buy another pair of climbing shoes. The edging is fantastic, and I find that I can smear on virtually anything. I wore a 37 in the Nago (a little too tight, even when stretched out, probably should have worn a 37.5 or 38), and find that a 38.5 in the Katana fits like a glove. Can't say enough how much I looove this shoe.
