Why We Like The Mantra Climbing Shoe

Who needs edges and midsoles? The Mantra did away with both over 20 years ago to give us max feedback and keep us light on the wall, leading to more precise, fluid footwork. Whether we're smearing on volumes or dancing horizontally in the steep, the soft flex and high-tension rand make sure our feet are finding purchase without wasting energy.


  • Aggressive slipper for max sensitivity on the wall
  • Downturned with high asymmetry for optimal power transfer
  • No midsole for increased grip on large volumes
  • No edge construction increases body awareness
  • Soft flex smears on slab and molds to varying footholds on overhangs
  • Vibram XS Grip2 rubber delivers consistent grip no matter the temp
  • Leather insole helps manage moisture and odors
  • Runs small, so we recommend sizing up for ideal fit

Nice shoe but poor longevity

I've used it several times

I really enjoyed using them at the gym, but after only 3 months they are do for resoling. La Sportiva said that this can be expected for the no edge technology so keep that in mind. I own two more pairs of la Sportiva and none of them have the amount wear and tear that these got in this short period of time. Sizing was the same as other La Sportiva shoes for me, they do tend to stretch a bit more though.

I've put it through the wringer
Size Bought:
5' 8"

These fit true to La Sportiva size, but Sportivas run very large compared to street shoe sizing, so if you're familiar with La Sportiva, get somewhere around your normal size, but if you're going by street shoe size, you need to downsize. I have found these to stretch less than anticipated, especially in the toe box, almost not at all for me, and I've used them 20+ sessions. They were relatively comfortable right out of the box, but quite tight at the same time, and if I get them again, I'm going a half size larger. Although this is purely a matter of comfort, not performance, as they perform impeccably at the current size. That said, someone else told me they wished they had gone a half size smaller. So who knows. These are surprisingly supportive for how minimal they are. It's basically a sock, but it doesn't feel that way at all when you're wearing it. The heel is phenomenal for a slipper, the best I've had on any shoe, including lace and velcro, which includes many La Sportiva in this same size where the heel was still very good.

Sportiva nails the sensitive slipper!

I've used it several times

This is the first real upgrade to the simple sensitive slipper concept since the Cobra, and it is a worthy step forward! As a fan of sensitive shoes I have always wanted something one step more sensitive until now. This is it! The ultimate soft climbing shoe. A Vibram Grip2 sock with no edge benefits. Fantastic! I am sold!

Another winner from Sportiva

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Size Bought:
6' 2"

This is my first slipper and my first No-Edge shoe. I wear a 43 Miura (lace + VS). The Mantra is made on the same last as the Miura (PD75), so I bought a 43 Mantra. The fit is comparable, as expected. Its a little more snug across the forefoot, but after one session in the gym I noticed some stretch. The heel feels like a second layer of skin on my foot, and its surprisingly comfortable for a performance fit shoe (my Miura VS make a 'hotspot' across my toes and the Mantra does not). The Mantra is super light, VERY flexible, and the most sensitive shoe I've worn. The XS Grip2 rubber makes it stick to everything. I have a feeling this will be my go to shoe when precision is key.
