Genius Climbing Shoe

La Sportiva calls the Genius Climbing Shoe its highest performing shoe for boulderers, sport climbers, and overhanging aficionados. The Genius gains its high performance through a No-Edge technology rubber overlay over the toe, which grips on edges and make-believe footholds like they were ledges. This remarkable technology lets you place your feet quicker and more efficiently, without having to readjust because No-Edge feels that good on the first step. The Genius also features La Sportiva's mind-bending P3 technology that made the Solution one of the most popular shoes today. P3 uses a Permanent Power Platform to maintain the Genius' aggressive downturn for life. Like the Testarossa, the Genius' heel is surprisingly soft, stretchy, and sensitive for a proper fit as well as solid heel-hooking.


  • La Sportiva's most versatile climbing shoe for edging
  • No-Edge technology gives a greater grip on crimps and edges
  • Vibram XS Grip 2 is a softer rubber compound for greater traction
  • P3 power rand maintains an aggressive downturn designed for steeps
  • Leather upper with microfiber mesh at the tongue for breathability
  • Laspoflex midsole is stiff at the toe and flexible around the heel
  • Item #LSP005T
