Otaki Climbing Shoe
The Otaki Climbing Shoe is an updated version of La Sportiva's very versatile Katana, except with a downturn for a more aggressive performance on any route or problem, and it's among our favorites for precise performance.
P3 technology applies a Permanent Power Platform that ensures the Otaki's downturn stays downturned. The S-Heel construction optimizes heel hooking and gives a snug fit, while Vibram's XS Edge sole sharpens the sides for ideal edging, slicing, and dicing. La Sportiva styled the Otaki's upper with laser-cut leather and microfiber reinforcements to reduce stretch. The LaspoFlex midsole isn't too soft nor too stiff; you could say it's just right.
