Who should buy the La Sportiva Speedster
The La Sportiva Speedster aims to provide movement fluidity in a variety of climbing situations. Its designers gave it a slip-lasted construction and the patented no-edge front end for enhanced sensitivity. It is an ideal option for those who are:
- looking for slip-on climbing shoes for swift on and off.
- looking for a pair of rock shoes that offers secure footing on nubbins and micro-edges.
La Sportiva Speedster’s aggressive downturn
Owners can set foot on different types of surfaces with sufficient slip and skid resistance thanks to the Speedster’s Vibram XS Grip 2 outsole. It has an overall thickness of 3 millimeters.
The Speedster from La Sportiva is an aggressively downturned rock shoe. Its beak-like toe zone, which is engineered with the no-edge technology, helps the climber to gain footing on nubbins and micro-edges with as much purchase as possible.
The Speedster lacks a standard midsole. In its place is the P3 rand, which reinforces both the medial and heel sections of the shoe.
Speedster from La Sportiva optimizes ground feel
A combination of suede leather and microfiber makes up the main shell of the La Sportiva Speedster. It does not come with a liner, translating to a more intimate feel of the surface.
Access to and from its confines is made more convenient with three synthetic pull loops.
Its high-wear areas, which include the heel and forefoot, come with enough randing for protection and climbing grip. A patch of rubber covers the inner part of the toe box for sticking power during toe hooks and similar maneuvers.
As the Speedster is a slip-on, straps and laces are out. Instead, it uses a pair of stretchy panels to lock the foot in place.
