What's the katana lace like? No one stocks them around here-


They are fairly stiff at first but quickly break in. They're also still stiff compared to the shoes you're talking about after break in. Pretty sensitive for a stiff shoe as well as having a very slight downturn, really just at the tip of the toe. The heel is kind of deep, but not as bad as the original Katana. They're fairly wide in the forefoot compared to most Sportiva shoes. The most recent iteration give me a toes flat fit at 2 euro sizes down from my street shoe and an edging fit at a half size below that. They don't stretch much at all. I think they're the second best modern stiff shoe behind the Feroce. The Feroce has a shallower heel and a slightly wider forefoot and an identical downturn. It is also much stiffer and just as sensitive.

How has the Muira VS not been brought up yet? Hands down, the best technical edging shoe I've ever put on. It's a master of the dime edge. Alex McIntyre
