The La Sportiva Python Climbing Shoe with Vibram XS Grip2 sole was engineered to excel in competitions, in the gym, and at the crag. Sticky rubber over the toes and full rubber coverage on the outside of the heel let you step up your footwork a notch for seriously steep routes.


High performance, super sensitive, nearly predatory, La Sportiva's Python provides you with incredible grip and immediate feedback. An aggressive, downturned toe has added rand coverage for steep routes and bouldering while the asymmetrical heel design keeps your foot locked into place. Supple, lined leather uppers provide stretch and moisture-wicking performance.
