La Sportiva Solution Climbing Shoe - Men's

The La Sportiva Solution is an aggressive, unique, and high-performing climbing shoe that is designed for modern bouldering, overhanging sport routes, technical face routes, and gym climbing.

The La Sportiva Solution (the "solution to all your problems", as La Sportiva say) is pretty ubiquitous amongst boulderers and in climbing gyms. The main difference from other high-performance shoes by La Sportiva is that the Solution features a medium-stiff midsole which will provide extra support on edges and longer boulder problems. But other features include the Lock Harness System® that wraps around the heel of the foot for extra security on heel hooks and blocks, as well as the Fast Lacing System® for a secure fit that doesn't restrict the movement of the shoe. The patented P3® rand system also maintains the shoe's powerful downturned shape for longer!

The Solution is lined in the toe-box and the arch area only, so expect it to stretch around half of a size. La Sportiva recommend that you fit it in the middle of tight and loose for the best performance.

Solution Climbing Shoe - Men's

P3® Permanent Power Platform

After intensive abuse, downturned climbing shoes can start to lose their distinctive shape. La Sportiva’s P3 rand system prevents from this happening so your shoe maintains its powerful profile, permanently.

Solution Climbing Shoe - Men's

Vibram XS Grip2™

Rubber compound built for pure friction, recommended for use where maximum grip is the primary need - bouldering and sport climbing, indoor climbing, or extremely smooth, polished routes.

Best climbing shoes!

I have had 7 pairs of solutions, they are just perfect for me. New version looks even better than earlier.

Perfect shoe for me

I used the previous version of Solution too, and I can tell that that this product is even better. It perfectly suits to my feet, and it gives the same performance that the previous. The velcro seems more stable and the lace in it is a little bit wider so I hope it will last longer. The shoe is pretty comfortable and if you choose the right size you will get used to it pretty quickly. For me this is the perfect shoe.

love those shoes

those are the best climbing shoes for bouldering!!!

Shouldn't have updated the shoe.

The old version was excellent and would fit on my foot perfectly, however, the new version just doesn't seem to be as snug, and I can't rely on as small footholds as I would in the old solution.

Great bouldering shoe

I took a smaller size for a snug fit, and it really delivers!. Little to no give in the heel when placing heel hooks, although depending on how small your shoes are, the downturn may make toe hooks painful when wearing them for prolonged periods of time (make sure to take them off between climbs). This new version has improved straps which were a pain point on the previous model. All in all a great pair of climbing shoes!
