Comments about La Sportiva Katana Lace-up Climbing Shoe (Men's):

Shoes I've used: Dragons, Team 5.10, Miura, Miura VS, Katana, Testarossa.

This is currently my favorite shoe on the market. It has an aggressive enough downturn for almost any angle of climbing, but unlike some high performance shoes it can handle slabby topouts and cracks pretty well. If you fit it loose you could wear it for a few hours, but I wouldn't recommend it for multipitch. It's better suited to hard single-pitch sport, bouldering and hard trad. Sizing is similar to Miura VS, but with a slightly narrower profile, especially in the heel.

Comments about La Sportiva Katana Lace-up Climbing Shoe (Men's):

I use the shoe for bouldering and sport as well as indoor and some top rope. The downturn is still intact after 4 months of hard climbing. The rubber is not meant for smearing but edges better than anything else. I find it most helpful on very small feet and overhangs. The shoe is much more down turned than the pictures suggest. I have compared them to a pair of muiras of similair age and they have the same amount of downturn just the muiras are slightly more asymmetric. The tongue is great and wicks away moisture very well and is almost like a slip-on works well for quick bouldering as long as you manage the laces well.
