Designed to fulfill the needs of expert climbers on elite routes and boulder problems, the La Sportiva Skwama is a sensitive, snug fitting, and flexible slipper with the security of a hook-and-loop closure system. It employs intelligent solutions like P3 patented technology and split-sole construction to make stronger its Vibram XS Grip2 sole, allowing the sole to spread and grab onto the tiniest edges when weight is applied. The suede leather and microfiber uppers snuggly wrap around the foot and get rid of rigid areas and internal voids, promoting stability in torsion. The innovative, patented shell S-Heel maintains stability and enhances the adaptability of the shoe throughout heel hooks. The Skwama model has protective, ultra sticky rubber at the toe to offer protection to against abrasion and form a substantial, grippy surface for toe hooks. Whether for technical bouldering, improvement at the gym, or expert-level crags, this high-performance shoe makes Mountaineering more fluid, intuitive, and harmonious.
