    Seem better than Katana Velcro

    These have replaced the Katana Velcro in the La Sportiva line. While that shoe was comfortable, it was lacking the P3 System that makes the Katana Lace hold its slight downturn so well - the P3 has been included in the Otaki. The Katana Lace is a favorite of mine, and the Otaki fits similar, but with a bit more downturn. Less downturn than the Muira VS but more than either Katana version. Great heel!

    Great edge, overall support, and superb heel

    PROS: In general a great shoe for precise edging and all day aggressive sport climbing or bouldering For the right foot, it fights like a glove Tremendous mid-foot support, and a strong heel for those hooks CONS: a thin scattered rubber patch on the upper surface makes for only mediocre toe hooks, and I also experienced de-lamination around the inside rubber edge, where the bottom lip starts to peel off. this is a known issue with la sportiva which is the main drawback and disappointment for such a reputable company, but fortunately it did not affect my climbing or function as a shoe - it was more of a cosmetic issue. i think it has been more of a common complaint with the katanas In general i would recommend this to other climbers as long as it fits your foot
