This technical climbing shoe is known for being precise, sensitive, and structured. With its closure, made of two hook and loop closure straps that are pulled in opposite directions, and a smart blend of synthetic and natural materials, the Katana offers both comfort and technical performance while remaining consistently sturdy long-term. In addition, the Katana was built with a special midsole that has a prehensile area under the toe which ensures optimal edging support and increases sensitivity at the same time. All in all, this is a very good all-around shoe that is suitable for multi-purpose use in the mountains, crags, and halls.
