La Sportiva Finale Rock Shoes - Women's
Reach the final pitch without wincing when you weight your toes. These all-rounders suit long trad routes or sporty face climbs, and will work indoors or out. They offer good performance and edging ability, and a tensioned heel rand lets you heel and toe hook with no fear of slippage.
- Uppers are leather microfibre.
- Slip-lasted construction with 1.mm P3 (Permanent Power Platform) midsoles.
- Outsoles are durable, grippy 5mm Vibram® XS Edge.
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.
