La Sportiva Futura ($170)
For more seasoned climbers, the La Sportiva Futuras are as good as it gets. La Sportiva's "no-edge" construction and the Vibram sole means your feet are extremely sensitive to surfaces. The agressive design is ideal for the smallest holds.
Our reviewer said: "Very aggressive sole with a good sharp toe design makes it easy to focus your weight on very small holds. Ideal for hard bouldering problems."
