Jory M.wrote a review of La Sportiva Katana Lace Vibram XS Edge Climbing Shoe on January 30, 2014
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
This shoe til this day keeps bringing joy to my face once I slip them on. Edge, smear, jam, heel oh gosh these shoes make it seem effortless on my behalf. Perfect amount of aggressiveness and flatness at the same time (sounds impossible to do). The synthetic liner makes them so comfortable. I have my Katana Laces same size as my solutions (which I jam my feet into) and I can keep them on during a full training session. My complaints about them come down to two things. One is with the synthetic liner and thats just because well my shoes became pretty smelly pretty quick (preventable thought). My only true complaint is that I wish they had more rubber on the top part of my shoes because toe hooking in these are just a bit harder than when my Solutions are wrapped up on my feet. These shoes will always be in my arsenal.
