The Sportiva Katana is a performance hook and loop closure shoe for every type of climbing.
The Katana is lined with Pacific in the forefoot for toe knuckle comfort and Dentex in the back for moisture management, t sporting a Lorica® toe-box to help keep the shape of the toe box and provide power while edging. The slingshot rand is connected to the powerhinge for excellent edging prowess and the opposing hook and loop closure straps provide opposing tension for a great fit. The ideal terrain is moderately overhanging sport routes, face climbing, gym climbing and crack climbing.
|Pacific||Synthetic fibre lining material with characteristics of dynamic adaptability (it stretches)|
|Dentex||Sportiva's top-secret proprietary synthetic rock shoe lining material with two way stretch|
|Lorica||A synthetic leather that is constructed from extremely small micro-fibers for a water-repellant, breathable and highly durable material|
|Slingshot Rand||Internationally patented by La Sportiva, this one-piece rubber rand wraps around the entire foot preventing stretch and driving the foot forward for a powerful forefoot fit|
|Powerhinge||A technology used in climbing shoes where the bottom of the outsole has a hole cut in it. The slingshot rand is then engineered to connect to the sole of the shoe in this area. When the toe of the shoe is weighted on an edge the weight of the climber stretches from the heel forward. The hole cut in the sole causes the shoe to only stretch in the back half of the shoe effectively leaving the toes in place on the surface of the rock.|
