Here's what other sites are saying:

The La Sportiva Otaki Rock Shoe is an all-around, aggressive hook and loop closure shoe for climbing performance on all terrain.

- Mountain Gear

Overhangs and tiny holds are no match for the women's La Sportiva Otaki climbing shoes. Sticky rubber soles and an aggressive downturned shape help you make quick work of steep, challenging routes.


The Women's Otaki Climbing Shoe is an updated version of La Sportiva's versatile Katana, upgraded with a downturn for a more aggressive performance on any route or problem. 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 Grip2 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.
