Finale Climbing Shoe

Before pro climbers crushed gnarly problems at the competitions that inspired you to start climbing, they were learning how to send in a pair very similar to the La Sportiva Women's Finale Climbing Shoe. This beginner-styled shoe features La Sportiva's long-lasting P3 Permanent Power Platform to keep you climbing in this pair for seasons. Its tensioned heel rand and power hinge ensures a high-end edging performance that legendary climbers could appreciate. The Vibram XS Edge sole is La Sportiva's go-to rubber, for even the most aggressive climbing shoes, and the LaspoFlex midsole is neither too soft nor too stiff, but juuuuust right.

  • P3 flat-lasted performance
  • Unlined leather upper
  • Tensioned heel rand and power hinge
  • LaspoFlex midsole with medium stiffness
  • Shape-retaining Vibram XS Edge rubber sole

Super comfy! Solid shoe!

True to size
Size Bought
38.5

The Finale are my comfiest gym shoes. And they also perform well outside! They take a couple weeks to really break in, stretching at least a half size (maybe a tad more). But, once they’re broken in, you can leave them on all day! I honestly don’t take them off until the end of our gym session, so I’m in them for at least 4 hours at a time with zero discomfort. I mostly sport climb. I got these in a 38.5. For size comparison, I wear 8.5 in Altra Lone Peak trail runners, 39 in TC Pros, and 39 in Scarpa Vapor V. I need a wider toe box in my shoes, hence the Altras, but still have an average heel width. The Finale don’t make my little toe feel like it is being suffocated, yet I still get solid heel hooks!

Great shoe

True to size

I bought these as my beginner to intermediate shoe. Before I was running a super aggressive shoe and could not wait to get a different shoe with more comfort. This is a nice quality shoe and for the most part fits true to size.

Comfy/versatile, but some heel slippage

I've had these shoes for over a year, and they've held up great. They're extremely comfortable and versatile; I use them primarily for bouldering indoors, occasionally outdoors. My only gripe is that the shoes start to slip off on aggressive heel hooks. I have relatively wide feet with narrower heels, so it's possible that my feet are just weird.

Great comfort in the crack

I was very happy that I decided to take these shoes out to a classic splitter up in little cottonwood. Even though these are the female version, they fit my feet just fine. The heel kept itself in place very nicely, without moving around during my multi-pitch climb. The shoe was able to get a good grip inside the flaring portion and in the more narrow section of the cracks, while still doing a solid job when I needed to smear on some slab. Placing my toe on a single crystal felt nice as the sole was sensitive but not overly so that I had no support. A very solid shoe for some vertical slab and all sorts of thin and fat cracks in my opinion.

Great!!

Familiarity:
I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I borrowed these for a friend to use who is a beginner climber. She said they were super comfortable and fit her wider feet better than most climbing shoes. Additionally, she told me that the shoes gave her a greater sense of confidence when gripping crimpy foot holds in comparison to other shoes she had tried.

Gave these as a gift to a friend and she loves them! The feed back I have gotten are they are flat enough to be comfortable yet have enough grip to still tackle tough climbs and maneuvers.

I got these as a demo for my friend and she said they kept their stiffness well for the wear that the shoe had received. They also felt solid on edges!

Though they take a second to break in, I'm really happy with them! The stiffness and tightness was definitely manageable and I'm having a great time using them!

Worked for me!

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I borrowed these to try them out for my first time climbing in a few years. I'm a bad judge to say what does and doesn't work but but here is my initial impressions from a very novice user. I wear a size 9 women's shoe and a 41 was a good size. My feet seemed snug, but they were not too tight to cause discomfort. These shoes had already been broken in so I experienced no issues with that, I did think the back of the shoe was a little high up on my heel but after adjusting them slightly had no issues while climbing.

Big fan of these!

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I got these for mainly indoor climbing and have loved them! The grip is good and they are fairly comfortable for a climbing shoe. I am usually a 7.5-8 and got an 8 (39.5). I might size down if I really wanted a good to grip but for indoor, I'd rather be comfortable. I love the laces and how I can adjust the tightness of my foot. They're a great shoe for a great price and I highly recommend!

My favorite shoes!

Familiarity:

They're perfect. I did a half size down, but have felt a bit of stretch so I do wish I did a full size down. Besides that they're comfortable, and fit well because they're lace up. They're only slightly aggressive which I think is great for a beginner or transitioning into being an intermediate climber.

love these shoes

Familiarity:

These are the comfiest climbing shoes I've ever owned. They're super cute and perform really well too! I prefer laces in order to get a snugger fit, and these fit like a glove. I prefer not to torture my feet in super aggressive shoes and these are a perfect mix of comfort and performance.

Great Intermediate Shoe

Familiarity:
I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

Purchased these shoes for my girlfriend and she loves them. They take some breaking in like all climbing shoes but she said they are more comfortable out of the box than most. She went down 1/2 a size from her street shoe and they are breaking in nicely. Would definitely recommend for an intermediate climber! All aground great climbing shoe.

The right tool to get into climbing

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I recently started climbing, and after renting shoes from my gym for two months, I decided to grab a pair of these. I didn't know much about climbing shoes, but I heard these were a good option and I thought they looked neat. I really noticed a difference on my first climb in these shoes. They weren't as "comfortable" as the really flat pairs my gym offers, but my toe was definitely stronger in these and I really enjoyed them.

Great shoe, wrong size for me!

Familiarity:
I returned this product before using it

I ordered these in a size 37.5. I am usually a 7.5 in street shoes and a 7 to 6.5 in climbing shoes. I prefer to size down a bit to get a more performance fit. I ordered these before trying them on and found that sizing down a full size was not the call. They definitely run a bit small, and I would suggest going in your regular street shoe size or maybe even sizing up. I had to return them, but they looked amazing! Very sturdy leather and well made construction. The heels looked pretty small, even for a size that way too small for me.

Ordered For A Friend

My friend loves them, but has noted a bit painful pressure point on the top of her big toes when using them. Otherwise she loves them and they feel great in all other areas!

Love Them!

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

Got these shoes for my girlfriend for her birthday. This is what she had to say: "I love these shoes. They are a great gym shoe but also do a great outdoors. I have been using a poor fitting, cheaper shoe and the Finale has stepped up my climbing. I went down a half size and I am happy I did. They hurt the first few times but have stretched out nicely. I think they are a good beginner shoe, and one that will be great as climbers start to progress on harder climbs."

Great shoe for beating around in the gym

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I've used this shoe mostly as a beater shoe in the gym and use a more aggressive shoe for outside climbing. It's pretty comfortable as the leather has stretched a lot, edges well, and smears and heel-hooks decently. I can see it as a great beginner shoe or a solid gym option since it is priced really well. I sized down 1 full size and kind of regret it as it can get uncomfortable. I'll probably buy this again for gym climbing and will size down 1/2 size.

Great shoe!

Familiarity:
I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I bought this for a very close friend as a gift. She was really attached to her old climbing shoes But it looks like these are a winner as a replacement! The first couple times climbing she has mentioned that they hurt a little bit but are breaking in nicely.

Can anyone say how the women’s and the men’s versions compare?
