One of La Sportiva’s newest shoe designs, The Skwama is targeted mainly at boulderers and a lot of attention has been paid to both the toe-box and heel construction. A rubber insert over the toes will help to protect the foot on overhangs while the heel features a patented S-heel design which holds the heel steady on torsion-heavy moves. The stability of the shoe is further enhanced by the sole being constructed in two parts, providing greater flexibility along the length of the shoe and preventing the heel from being pulled out of place on tenuous heel hooks. An extremely sensitive and very flexible shoe, the Skwama fits into La Sportiva’s range as a slightly less aggressive cousin to the Solution that will suit intermediate to advanced boulderers.
