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.

Full Features List

• Marbled P3® rands - each pair is unique!

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.

Good friction

It works well regardless of toe strength, heel rigidity, indoors or outdoors.

my favorite model from la sportiva!

i have used several models like futura, python, cobra but i find solutions to be the best of them! good fit!

Great shoe. Amazing Performance

This is my second pair and they are everything you need in a high performance shoe. The only thing with this new pair is that they dye runs and has turn my toe nails yellow. The last pair didnt do this. Still a amazing shoe tho.

so so

The solution's shoes are obviously good shoes, but I'm upset that you've sent me something that's very bad.
The outsole of the heel cup is uneven and there is residue.

A top de linha da La Esportiva

Muito boa, robusta, bem reforçada no calcanhar, aconselho o 42 EU para quem como eu calça 40 BR. comprei 42,5 e ficou folgadinha.... pena, percebi que ela só fica bem se ficar bem apertada mesmo, pois a sola é bem grossa.
