Otaki is Samurai slang for the oldest single wire sword; incredibly sharp and precise when used on small targets. A fitting description for the latest offering from La Sportiva.
According to Pietro Dal Pra the La Sportiva Otaki is an evolution from the legendary Katana. Sharp, stiff and aggressive, the Otaki uses the P3 midsole technology to retain its downturned shape over time. 4mm Vibram XS Edge rubber gives the shoe a supportive, powerful sole that is extremely precise.
The big news for the La Sportiva Otaki and the new Skwama is the S-Heel. Most hook moves are performed with the inside of the heel and this can lead to the shoe twisting and losing torsional stability. The S-Heel is basically a very stiff strip of rubber that helps the shoe to maintain its stability and gives the climber more power and control.
The Otaki is a real technical all-rounder. Great for tough sport, technical bouldering and super steep trad.
