Product description

The La Sportiva Genius is one of their best-selling and most high-performance climbing shoe, one that has undoubtedly had climbers screaming "Eureka!", thanks to the shoe's No-Edge® Technology.

Designed for technical sport climbing and steep bouldering, the La Sportiva Genius features all of La Sportiva's not-so-secret recipes for their top-spec shoes. The P3® rand system maintains the shoe's powerful downturn, permanently. Its asymmetrical lacing system provides the precise fit of laces, yet it allows enough room for rubber to be placed along the inside of the forefoot so as not to sacrifice toe-hooking performance. But it's really the No-Edge® Technology that makes the Genius: a design that removes the edges from the shoe's rubber, this technology makes the shoe much more sensitive and adaptable than a standard climbing shoe and, whilst it will take some getting used to, will excel on seemingly blank rock. It may seem like a daft thing to do, but climbers all over have been praising it.

As for fit and other features, the Genius is ideal for people with medium-to-wide feet, and La Sportiva recommend that it should be fitted in the "medium" range - i.e., not too loose, but not too tight. Vibram XS Grip2™ rubber is used for maximum friction (better for smearing!) and a medium-stiff midsole balances foot support and flexibility, ensuring you don't become too fatigued too quickly on longer sport climbs.
