La Sportiva is a SHOE company for a reason. There is also a reason that the Mammut Samurai's is 80 bucks. The thing in this industry you will pay for quality. Any La Sportiva shoe that i have worn ive had no complaints. The testerossa and Shaman are very different. The Shamans have a synthetic upper so you will get no stretch. With the testerossa the whole shoe will stretch. There is nothing like wearing a full leather shoe. If you get them sized right they will perfect conform to your foot. The testerossa's are a softer shoe once you get them broken in. The shamans feel a bit cheap to me. In all reality it depends on what kind of climbing your doing.
