Show Description

“Don’t drive your Ferrari around on gravel roads.” The same applies for the Testarossa sport-climbing shoe. With an aggressive down-cambered last and curved shape, they are designed for high-performance climbers on steep gymnastic routes. The patented La Sportiva® slingshot rand drives the foot forward and concentrates the power in the big toe area. The hammer toe fit allows wickedly precise foot placements, effective toe-ing, and powerful grabbing. Make no mistake these are not all-round shoes, but high-performance, steep, over-hanging route eaters.

  • Slip lasted construction with a radical anatomical shape.
  • Combination leather and Lorica® uppers provide good fit and limit stretch.
  • Split heal rubber wraps nicely and limits rubber slack.
  • Midsoles are Hytrel anotomical inserts.
  • 4mm soles with XS Grip2™ rubber with 1.8mm rands.
  • Fit half to one size bigger than other La Sportiva shoes.

A flat profile suits long routes and cracks. Curved shoes allow precision and good edging. Hooked shoes are down-turned and tensioned, for power to the toe on steep or overhanging routes.


Highly asymmetric shoes allow more precision and focused power. Symmetrical shoes are more comfortable for all-around climbing.


Stiffness is provided by the type of sole and the tensioning system. Softer shoes allow more precision. Supportive shoes prevent fatigue.
