I've come back to La Sportiva after a long love relation with my Anasazi VCS. My last La Sportiva shoe was a Viper, dating back to 2002?.

I really like the shoe. It is aggressive (much more down-turned than velcro Katanas) and looks very good constructed. However they are not as asymmetrical as Miura VCS. (I have never been comfy with extremely asymmetrical shoes, like Testarossa.)

When I tried first time (limestone) I had the same I same feeling that I had with my first Anasazi pairs: the feeling that I could climb better. They work great, specially if you don't buy them ridiculously tight (one size and half smaller that shor shoes is fine). They edge on everything and  they do a very good job in small holds.

I really recommend it for those looking for technical lace shoe, specially if liked Anasazi.

Price Paid: 90 euros
