Product overview

Are you in for crack climbing or work rough trad routes? Buyers suggest you get this footwear if so. You likely won’t be disappointed with La Sportiva Men’s TC Pro Climbing Shoe when aggressive climbs and tricky surfaces make your ideal climbing destination. Designed for powerful edging and superb crack climbing performance, this footwear has a strategically placed foam for unrivalled comfort in cracks.

The edging performance is further enhanced with its proprietary P3 permanent power platform in the 1.1m LaspoFlex midsole. The shoe has a technical design allowing beginner climbers to quickly get the hang of skills and expertise needed for aggressive climbing in no time. And if bouldering is your top favourite type of, they are equally up to it and waiting to have your feet.

La Sportiva Men’s TC Pro Climbing Shoe fares well in the breathability department, coming with an air mesh tongue that improves feel and convenience all day. The mid-height design and a thin ankle protection position you for excellent toe padding in cracks. Make no mistake with the flat fit as it gives your toes the sensitivity and comfort in all terrains.

La Sportiva Men’s TC Pro has an upper leather and aggressively grips on sharp edges. Going climbing all day? Great! Lacing on these shoes means you won’t be dealing with any real burden on your way up as La Sportiva Men’s TC Pro only weighs 8.71oz.

On the flip side, there are a number of concerns for the budding climber; some buyers don’t feel the Vibram XS Edge rubber is matchless. While the design is super stiff to allow for better edging, some users find it below par for use in extensive slab climbing as they find the shoe not sticky enough. They may also not work well for overhanging. Another concern reported by users is the tongue which, some posit, rolls inwards during use. Surely not a gripe you want to realize when you are already way up and about to cam your foot in a crack. The aggressive climbing shoe is also only available in one colour; Sage, so that could be another drawback if you would prefer to go with another colour.

On the whole, La Sportiva Men’s TC Pro is a regular climber’s comfort footwear and matches its aggressive features with decent performance and durability. Take the shoes to all surfaces and your climbing should be off to a great start!
