Definitely the most striking shoe design we saw this year, the Futura marries La Sportiva's popular Solution with the wraparound, edgeless sole from the company's Speedster slipper. The result is a futuristic shoe fit for the most overhung projects. The design definitely favors strong climbers with precise footwork (intermediates had trouble keeping their feet on the wall), but testers who stayed with it reported that the extra rubber let them stick to dime-sized nubs with ease.
