La Sportiva Solution Climbing Shoe
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.

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.
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.
Full Features List

I climbed in them for 3 sessions now and I really like them so far!
It's my first downturnd shoe and it fits my foot perfectly, the heel are awesome to do heel hooks with and you can stand on small holds without no problem
Really good for a sport climbing, but it can be a bit painful after one hour bouldering section.
Solutions are one of my favorite la sportiva shoes. They perform best when pretty tight (in my opinion). I use a 46 street shoe and a 43 in my solutions. They are not my choice when running laps or bouldering circuits, I save these for the sending goes when I want that extra precision and extra reach. Great for heel hooks and toe hook. Great for steep terrain and surprisingly really good in more technical grounds too. I find their soft rubbers works wonders in Freyr soapy footholds. I love the velcro since it makes it very easy to get them on and off. However it might also be their only downside, the strap wears off over time. I did not get to resole my last pair because the strap was about to break.
In any case, terrific shoe!
Stiff when new which gives a great shoe for small edges. The heel is a little lose sometimes however the shape is so rigid that heelhooking is absolutely solid. Once worn in they also seem to work well on smears. Only reason not 5 stars is that if you scratch the metal buckles, while doing heel toe cams for example, the scratch will start to shred the straps and they will snap. I've had to retire 2 pairs like this prematurely
Within 10 weeks this shoe fell apart, the rubber peeled away and was clearly a manufacture fault... The dealer has ignored me and also la sportiva team has ignored me. Zero customer service, absolutely shocked that both companies ignored my e mails about the shoes. Steer clear of these if not for the fact they could fall apart after 30 climbs the fact that if you have an issue with anything La Sportiva will ignore your issue as they don't give a damn about customers.
