La Sportiva Kataki Women’s Review: A Beginner’s Look

Are you interested in the La Sportiva Kataki Women’s climbing shoe?

Since we couldn’t find any helpful information specifically about the women’s shoe before we purchased it, we wanted to put together our thoughts and hopefully help you guys out!

Climbing for 8 months; just completed her first V5

Original Shoe: Scarpa Origin (40 EU)
Current Shoe: La Sportiva Kataki Women’s (38 EU)
Break-in Period: 4 weeks, 2x week

**They weren't in store so we couldn't try them on, but tried other lace shoes to compare. Despite being able to fit into a 37, we decided on a 38 because of the Kataki's aggressive fit, leaving room for the laces to adjust fit where needed.

– fantastic colors
– good transition into aggressive fit
– better underhang precision
– more confidence on smaller holds
– huge improvement from starter shoes
– laces allow for custom fit

– painful break-in period
– heel-liner caused some discomfort
– laces take slightly more time

Hope this helps and happy climbing!

Hi friends! Welcome to the channel and thanks for stopping by! We really hope you guys enjoy the content!

We're a group of novice climbers and friends who enjoy pulling on plastic and motivating each other to do better.

I started this channel as a fun personal project so that we could look back on our progress, but also because I've learned so much as a beginner from watching other climbing videos that I wanted to contribute to the climbing community as well. It's been really fun making these videos and if even just one person gets some enjoyment out of them too, I'm happy as well 🙂

We'll keep posting videos as long as we climb and have time, and we're always looking for ways to improve – so if you have any comments or questions, we'd love to hear them!

And again – thanks for watching!!!
