La Sportiva Python
The La Sportiva Python is a competition and artificial wall climbing shoe that combines high performance with comfort for modern climbers who want to push their level on boulder problems, overhanging sport routes, technical face climbs, and in climbing gyms.
The shoe has been designed to be as sensitive and as soft as possible with maximum performance on heel hooks and toe hooks. The sole is only 3.5mm thick and no lining is used at all, and La Sportiva has given it a 5/5 out on their sensitivity scale. Great for tiny, frictionless holds on overhanging problems! The sole has been split in the middle to make the shoe as soft as possible for technical manoeuvres like toe-hooking and general hooking onto steep holds, and the velcro strap secures the heel when heel hooking and blocking.
This new Python has an improved toe patch for better toe-hooking performance and boasts a more comfortable fit than before. It is designed to fit really snugly, but keep in mind that its unlined suede leather upper will stretch up to a full size. So size appropriately!
