The La Sportiva Python is a high-performance, super sensitive slipper designed for use in the gym, at the crag, and in competitions. Originally built specifically for La Sportiva's climbing team to satisfy the need for the perfect comp shoe, the Python is the ideal tool for high level modern climbing where you need sticky rubber over the toes and full rubber coverage on the outside of the heel for technical heel hooks. The Python has an added velcro tension strap for lower volume feet that can't get a good fit in a slipper. The unlined leather construction of the Python allows the shoe to mold to the shape of your foot for a customized fit. Be sure to size these shoes down, as they will stretch quite a bit!

Having gone through many shoes, this might be my favorite aggressive shoe. It fits perfectly, conforming to all of the dimensions of my foot, although its just rigid enough to not fatigue quickly over long sport routes, or hours in the gym. I feel like my options for what I can step on and stick on are increased from my more rigid shoes. Additionally I have resoled it once, and am about to send them in for a second. I found no loss in performance with the resole.

Favorite indoor/ training shoeRocking my second pair of pythons and they have been my go to shoe for the gym, whether bouldering or climbing sport routes. They also perform well outside, super sticky, and the extra rubber on the toe makes them a pretty comfy crack climbing shoe as well. Super sensitive, fit really well and continue to fit better and better as the leather stretches and molds to your foot. With that said, these shoes stretch a lot. I would size down considerably;pretty much as small a shoe as you can get your foot into. For comparison I wear a 43 in a Muira Lace and I went down to a 42 in the python to make up for how much more they stretch.
