The La Sportiva Python is a technical shoe for climbers looking for more sensitivity and performance in a soft, slipper-like shoe.
They are super supple and very soft, much the same as their predecessor, the Cobra. The Pythons perform incredibly in a gym, I was very impressed by how sticky the rubber is after using them once while bouldering in the gym.
Not really a con, but a word of advice - they stretch up to a size and are very soft so I recommend fitting them as tight as you possibly can, they will stretch even after the first use.
The Pythons are ideal for training in a gym or for crushing those long term boulder projects outside. The Pythons are my shoe of choice for the gym.
