La Sportiva Solution Climbing Shoe - Women's
The La Sportiva Solution Women's is identical to the men's Solution apart from one key difference to make it better suited for women: thinner 3.5mm rubber is used to make these shoes more sensitive and generally more responsive for people of lighter weight - also a good option for a male who likes his Solutions extra sensitive. Embrace the pink!
Aside from that, this classic bouldering shoe remains pretty much the same. This shoe is hailed by climbers and reviewers alike as being one of the best bouldering shoes on the market. 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.

Verry good service, fast en accurate after the first one witch where send was the wrong one. a personal apologies on a note make the shop personal. our daughter love the shoes for fitting en technics by climbing. i think to by them for my self!(yellow-one)
I bought the La Sportiva Solution Women’s, and I love them. The fit is tight even in the heel, and it is easy to adjust the fit due to the Velcro closure.
I mainly boulder indoor and they are perfect for that. They are easy to take on and off, which is very nice in the break in period. I’m a street size 39, and chose these in a size 37½, they hurt at the start, but its gets better every time I wear them. I’m now able to climb a few routs before I have to take them off. I love that the Solution is very aggressive, I would differently recommend these.
Epictv promptly told me they were out of stock and made suggestions. I ended up getting the yellow solution and love them! Stretches a bit compared to genius/futura I have, so I sized down 1/2 from those. Now comfortable enough after 4/5 sessions of climbing.
Comfortable (as bouldering shoes go!) and the aggressive downturn has really improved my climbing. Great for toe and heel hooks. Velcro system helps get a good fit. Very comfortable tongue too. Highly recommend!
This isnt a women only shoe - I'm a guy and in love with these. I find this shoe feels very similar to the futura due it having a thinner rubber, so its soft, but not too soft. If you cant try these on for size, try the futuras.
I also find it is far more comfortable than male version. This is due to the lower volume, noticable in the heel too.
The rubber is sticky as always with La Sportiva, and the closure system is brilliant - the benefits of a lace, with the speed of a velcro!
