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.

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.

Good shoes

Bought for hardfree climb.
Good froction, hard edge

best point ever, not the greatest heel

for my feet, the heel is too big but still great shoe event outdoors it feels like the shoe is climbing for me

Best shoe I have tried.

I live in Thailand and I've been wearing the older pink version of this shoe for the past 6 years or so for indoor and outdoor sport climbing as well as indoor bouldering. I was worried to buy this "new" version over the internet without trying them on, but I took a chance and I'm thrilled with the fit. I ordered the same size that I wore in the older pink version (39.5) and they fit exactly the same, with maybe even better heel support when bouldering. And the coloring is clearly a vast improvement as well. 10 out of 10.


I use this shoe for outdoor sport climbing, it has great performance, but I think the heel part is a little bit big.

Good, as usual

It's my second pair of Solutions, no disappointment. They are as good as the previous :)
I use them for indoor bouldering only.
