The La Sportiva Kataki is a blend of the Otaki and Katana to provide a versatile climbing shoe with slight stiffness and downturned profile with a lace closing system. The Kataki is equipped with Sportiva’s S-Heel system that simultaneously enhances the shoes fit whilst providing assurance on aggressive heel hooks irrespective of the angle.


Unlike other downturned shoes, The Kataki is fitted with La Sportiva’s P3 power platform that ensures the shoe maintains its profile during its lifetime. The Kataki excels on steeper terrain, for both bouldering and sport climbing. The Vibram XS rubber soles gives assurance and power on the smallest of edges.

  • Upper: Combination of suede leather with microfiber.
