Features

P3 ™
The Permanent Power Platform P3™ is a patented construction system maintaining the downturn shape of the climbing shoe for a longer period of time.
No-Edge ™
The patented No-Edge™ concept lessens the amount of rubber between the toes and the rock leading to a better sensitivity. The surface area in contact with the rock is hereby increased and supports the exertion of homogeneous pressure.

What does the manufacturer say? - La Sportiva

The Genius climbing shoe uses the innovative No-Edge technology by La Sportiva and features a lace-up closure system.

It uniquely combines the sensitivity and performance of the “no-edge” technology to the comfort, precision and volume adaptability of lace-up models. This particular construction method allows for the perfect adaptation to different types of rock deriving from the larger surface area in contact with the holds, while comfort is guaranteed by the lacing system that allows for perfect regulation of inner volumes and wraps the foot snugly and precisely, providing even greater support. The Laspoflex midsole combined to the P3 Patent System in fact, provides support for the climber even if the shoe is not worn excessively tightly. This construction feature united to the lacing system makes the shoe adaptable to all types of foot, both narrow and wide fit. It is the ideal choice for use on rock walls, it can be worn for long periods thanks to the enhanced comfort features but it is also ideal for use on the boulders thanks to the grippy heel. Genius is the natural evolution of the climbing species.
