Not sure what type of climbing shoes are right for you?

We explain the three general styles of climbing shoe using three La Sportiva models as examples:

The Mythos, Katana and Skwama are three climbing shoe models from the La Sportiva range, each with its own unique features, and they serve to perfectly illustrate in broad strokes the three primary categories of climbing shoes: beginner/classic climbing, higher difficulty/long multipitch climbing, and boulder/high-grade sport climbing.

Of course, other styles and categories exist. To help you feel confident about choosing the right climbing shoe, we’ve written an extensive article to answer all your questions and explain everything you need to know before making your choice.
