The futura is now.

The La Sportiva Women's Futura Climbing Shoe looks like it's from the future. Climbers from the sixties would have been baffled with everything from the aggressive downturn to the flashy colors. They wouldn't understand how La Sportiva's No-Edge Technology actually allows better edging rather than none at all, and they wouldn't want to know why P3 technology keeps it at such a harsh downturn. If they did have this shoe back then though, there would have been even more first ascents in Yosemite, especially all the boulders, and sport climbing would have been mainstream sooner than it did.

  • Sensitive climbing shoe shaped for hard boulders and steep sport
  • No-Edge Technology maximizes edging prowess and sensitivity
  • P3 technology maintains aggressive downturn or shoe's life
  • Fast Lacing System with soft, stretchy, overlapping tongue
  • Vibram XS Grip 2 rubber sole optimizes traction on any rock

A great switch from the solutions

    I've been wearing solutions for 3 years, and wanted to try something new. The edgeless tech on the futuras took me a little while to get used to--at first I didn't trust my feet at all. But now that I've been using them for awhile I trust my feet way more than I used to! I think these really are making me a better climber.

    For fit, I chose the same size that I wear in the solutions, and it was perfect.

    not for everyone

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    I really wanted these shoes to work but sadly they didn't feel the same way. The come up a bit higher around the outside ankle bone which really irritated and bothered my ankle. My normal shoe size is a 7 and i purchased a 37.0 for a more aggressive and tight fit. i've heard nothing but great things about these shoes, they just didn't fit me.

    Great shoes to level up your climbing

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I bought these shoes after growing out of my first beginner pair. They are definitely more aggressive and were pretty terrible to break in compared to me first pair. These gave me a hotspot on the knuckle of my big toe, I wore them with socks on in the house for 10 minute intervals for a couple of nights. After that, they started feeling good about 10 climbs in. These shoes are pretty pointy, if all your toes are the same length I think these would be uncomfortable. I would go a full to to 1.5 sizes down from street shoe size.

    I always reach for these

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I primarily climb on limestone sport routes, and wanted a softer shoe than my Otakis so I could really feel smaller holds, and be comfortable on my feet on more vert, techy routes. I have a really low-volume heel, so I waited and waited for the women's version of the Futura to come out so it would hopefully fit my foot a bit better than the men's. These didn't disappoint! I'm so so so obsessed with these shoes, and find myself reaching for them even on really overhung boulder problems where I'd typically prefer a stiffer toe platform.

    About the fit: I wear a size 9 street shoe, and I've worn a size 39 in all LaSportiva shoes my whole life. For the sake of comfort, I went with a 39.5 in these, despite the warmings of other climbers that they do stretch. While they fit and they work for me in a 39.5, I have noticed they feel a bit roomier than I'm used to in the heel, which is especially apparent on powerful heel hooks. Next time I'll go a two and a half sizes down from my street shoe, but for now I'm enjoying the comfort!

    Favorite Sport Climbing Shoes Ever!!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I had been a long-time fan of the La Sportiva Solutions, but really felt like I could climb at my prime when the toes of the solutions got worn down. I decided to give the Futuras a try (men's version, as they had not released the women's version yet), back in April to test out the no-edge. I was a little hesitant and first, and would still use my Solutions for my redpoints as I was not fully trusting my feet wearing the Futuras.

    However, after a month or so I began reaching for my Futuras more and more. Pretty soon after that, I was obsessed. I predominantly climb in American Fork Canyon, on slippery over-hanging limestone. With the Futuras on, I do not even notice the slickness anymore. I stick to the wall like glue.

    These shoes are absolutely amazing. I sent one of my year+ long projects in 2 goes with these shoes on. I know for a fact, it is because these shoes allowed me to use my feet that much better.

    These shoes are bomb for hard sport climbing, and I am so glad they finally released a women's version of this shoe!! For comparison, my street shoe size is a 9. I wear a 38.5 in the women's Solutions. I had to size the men's Futuras down to a 38 in order to get the heel cup to fit. It was such a long and painful break-in period (they are finally broken in, and now need a re-sole). However, the women's Futuras have a narrower heel cup, so I was able to size these like the Solutions, and get them in a 38.5. They fit perfectly, and there is essentially no break-in period.

    Love these shoes, love the color (thank you La Sportiva for finally not making the women's version "pink"). Even my male climbing partners love the color, and several have commented that they want to get the women's pair just for the color.

    Sizing summary:
    Street Size: 9 (women's)
    Futuras (women's): 38.5
    Solutions (women's): 38.5
    Futuras (men's): 38
    La Sportiva Boulder X approach shoes; 40.5

    so far, so good

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    i've only been climbing for a couple years, and mostly indoors until this season. i've tried a few different shoes, including mythos as my intro (wore through quickly), vapor v (too narrow and only used when overhung bc uncomfortable), low volume solutions (old pink and new coral), and now the low volume futuras. i really love solutions, and the new version have even lower volume heels with more sensitivity vs the giant ball on the previous model. i had always wanted to try edgeless futuras, but the blue versions were always too large with an enormous heel. i couldnt wait until these mint ones came out. they're super comfortable with barely any break-in period required. when my feet get a little warm and rub on the inside after climbing for longer periods of time, the futuras are very soft and don't rub like the solutions. my first time climbing outside in these felt super different because i didn't feel the same hard, heavy pressure in toes on tiny edges. i really like them so far, and obviously smearing is great! i wear 36.5 (fairly tight) in the solutions, and i went with 37.0's in the futuras. the futuras are comfortably snug, except one foot, which is about .25 sizes smaller than the other, is a little looser than i would prefer, but still feels fine. i would def buy again and am actually thinking about the half size smaller and have two different sized shoes for optimal feel! nerd!!

    Thanks for your awesome review Kendall <3
