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!
• Fast Lacing System® uses a thin, overlapping strap to provide a more comfortable and overall secure fit than one velcro strap - and it's fast!
• Lock Harness® is an x-shaped rand in the rear of the shoe that secures the heel to provide better support and grip during heel hooks

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.
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.

I bought this ones for the second time. I had last season solutions, this ones are even better, better fit to my feet. Give it a try you will not regret it. Sizing: Went for a one and half (1.5) sizes below my street shoe. It fits snug and is really comfortable for such a precise shoe. Really love this ones
Je les utilise depuis maintenant 2 mois et j'en suis très satisfait. Très bonne adhérence et bonne tenue de pied
It works well regardless of toe strength, heel rigidity, indoors or outdoors.
i have used several models like futura, python, cobra but i find solutions to be the best of them! good fit!
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.
