    An aggressive all-arounder.

    The Women's Otaki Climbing Shoe is an updated version of La Sportiva's versatile Katana, upgraded with a downturn for a more aggressive performance on any route or problem. P3 technology applies a Permanent Power Platform that ensures the Otaki's downturn stays downturned. The S-Heel construction optimizes heel hooking and gives a snug fit, while Vibram's XS Edge sole sharpens the sides for ideal edging, slicing, and dicing. La Sportiva styled the Otaki's upper with laser-cut leather and microfiber reinforcements to reduce stretch. The LaspoFlex midsole isn't too soft nor too stiff; you could say it's just right.

    Love these shoes!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    I was a big fan of the Miura VS (women's) before I came across these Otakis. My forefoot is on the wider side for a girl, so it's quite difficult for me to find properly sized, tight shoes with no deadspace, that don't also torture my pinky toe. These fit like a dream - so comfortable to wear for an aggressive profile (same last as Miura VS and Solutions), and yet despite the comfort are so powerful at everything - edging, heel hooking, smearing, vertical, overhang, sport, boulder, indoor, outdoor, you name it! I bought these along with a pair of my long-trusted Miuras intending to try out the new model and rotate the two on different climbing days, but a few weeks after the purchase I found myself consistently reaching for the Otakis when I go climbing, and my Miuras were beginning to collect dust.

    Pros:
    - P3 power platform + XS Grip 2 rubber (not XS Edge in the Backcountry description) makes this stiff enough on the tiniest edges but sensitive enough to smear on very insecure dishes
    - Very stable heel hooks
    - Easy to put on and take off because the step-in is fairly wide
    - Great colors

    Cons:
    - If there is one thing I wish the Otakis had, it would be a more substantial toe-rubber patch for toe-hooking, the pattern on top of the shoe isn't really rubber - appears to be purely for aesthetic purposes

    My sizing for reference:
    - Otakis: size EU 34.5
    - Street: women's size 6, EU 36
    - Miura VS Women's: size 34.5 (latest versions)
    - Skwama: size 34.5
