Show Description

Looking to upgrade your first pair of shoes or get something a little more technical? The Kubo have subtle asymmetry and a slight downturn for one-shoe quiver performance in most terrain. The supportive midsole and XS Grip rubber support your foot on small edges in near-vertical terrain, and the toe rubber and high-performance heel provide grip when heel or toe hooking in steep terrain.

  • Leather and microfibre upper with opposing hook-and-loop closures for a precise fit.
  • Cushioned tongue provides comfort on long days or in foot jams.
  • Rubber toe patch grips to technical toe hooks.
  • Full-length 1.1mm Laspoflex midsole provides maximum edging support.
  • 4mm Vibram® XS Edge™ rubber outsole sticks to small edges.
  • La Sportiva suggests downsizing 1-1.5 sizes (performance fit) or 0.5-1 sizes (comfort fit) from your street shoe size.

Ideal for

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.
