User Review: La Sportiva Men's Katana
Break-in Period: 2 weeks
Price Paid: $70
I've been climbing for 1.5 years now and own currently 7 pairs of climbing shoes. This is by far the best climbing shoe I've had, it is very technical, but very comfortable. I had a pair of Vipers before and although they had great grip, taking them off was a pain, whereas the Katana are easy to put on and remove, and with the velcro you adjust how tight you want them. I have used it indoors, on granite and basalt, and has always excelled! Great sport climbing shoe.
Down side? After using it 2-3 times a week, had to resole them after 3 months.
