Over 20 years ago in 1999, well ahead of its time; one of the lightest and most sensitive climbing shoes with No-Edge® Technology was developed - that shoe was the Mantra. Now, in 2022 the Mantra is being reintroduced with the latest technological advancements and will once again be one of the lightest and most sensitive shoes in the market and within La Sportiva’s line of shoes. For climbing shoe minimalists who enjoy “dancing” up the wall, the Mantra relaunch will be a dream come true.
• Combining the No-Edge® concept with D-Tech™ Technology (Dynamic Technology), the sole wraps the shoe laterally for a total absence of edges
• With a deconstructed upper and sole thickness reduced to a minimum, the foot's proximity to rock surfaces is maximized
• The absence of a midsole allows easy movement of your toes both up and down for total forefoot control and increased grip on large volumes in the gym
• For modern competition climbing and futuristic manuevers

Specialist performance in an extreme, modern package, the La Sportiva Mantra is a uniquely exceptional shoe which reimagines the limits of a soft climbing boot. Sure, this isn’t going to be your go to mountain trad shoe or the best option for small edges on a slab but for modern bouldering, indoor competitions and sedimentary rock types, you won’t find anything better. A modern classic, the Mantra is a truly special climbing shoe that I’m savouring for my next project effort.
