Show Description

Work micro-nubbins and polished edges with these super sensitive and flexible slipper-like shoes. The Skwama has a sticky rubber toe patch to aid hooking and scrumming, and an S-heel construction to add power to your heel hooks. The split sole is designed to spread under load to reduce deformation and help you balance on tiny edges.

  • Uppers are leather with microfibre, unlined for a glove-like fit and sensitive feel.
  • Hook-and-loop closure makes for easy on/off and lets you tune in a performance fit.
  • S-Heel offers stable, confident heel hooking.
  • P3 rand construction with 0.8mm LapsoFlex midsoles.
  • Sticky rubber toe patch for grip and comfort when toe hooking.
  • Split sole construction offers grip on small edges.
  • Soles are 4mm Vibram® XS Grip2.
  • La Sportiva suggests downsizing 1-1.5 sizes (performance fit) or 0.5-1 sizes (comfort fit) from your street shoe size.

Ideal for
  • Bouldering

  • Sport and toprope climbing

A neutral shoe suits long routes and cracks. Moderate shoes allow precision and good edging. Aggressive shoes are downturned 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.
