Why We Like The Katana Lace Climbing Shoe

When an area has a little bit of everything, we approach with the Katana Lace clipped to our pack. This one-shoe quiver smears on slab, twists into cracks, edges on faces, and loads the toe on overhangs, giving us that send performance on every line. Now with increased rubber coverage on the heel, this shoe gives bomber hooks too.


  • Versatile climbing shoe for sending from slab to steep
  • Slight downturn and asymmetry for increased power transfer
  • Tubular construction and P3 tech for comfort and lasting performance
  • Half sole with Vibram XS Edge rubber for durability and precision
  • Leather and microfiber upper will stretch about a half size
  • Partially lined with breathable tongue for moisture management
  • Full-length LaspoFlex midsole increases comfort on multi-pitches
  • Narrower heel design gives slimmer feet a better fit and feel

Size issues.

Size Bought:
5' 5"

I generally wear a 39.5 mens Katana (old model), 39.5 women's solution. 40 TC pro and they all perform great out of the box. I purchased the new women's katana in a 39.5 and they feel super comfortable but a bit clunky. They would be great for all day/all around use but when it comes to honing in on small edges it feels like I'm closing my eyes and praying that my feet don't pop off. This is similar to what my tc pros (40) feel like when I'm edging. I think the new katanas may run a 1/4 to 1/2 size large. A friend of mine had the same experience with the new mens katana and ended up buying a 1/2 size down to compensate and is satisfied. I will be exchanging mine for a size down and will report back.

Women's Katanas are great for men too

I've used it several times
Size Bought:
5' 11"

I decided to purchase these bc I couldn't find my size (42) in the men's version anywhere and I was utterly jubilated to find out that these are just as good (if not better). They're a bit softer than the regular Katana Lace and the fit of the new models is about a half size larger than the old ones. If you're a 42.5 in the old shoe than get a 42 or 41.5 -- you won't regret it.
