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.

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.

Solutions are aid

These shoes just put so much power down on the overhangs, it's like nothing else. Make sure you downsize for maximum effectiveness. Also make sure you already own a more comfortable shoe to use when warming up or on easier climbs.

The best shoe ever!!

I have really small and narrow feet (EU 35) and I looked everywhere for these. Epic TV shop was the spot!!! So good price and I had no trouble finding my size! They fit perfectly! These shoes are amazing. I stay glued to every little spot on the wall, and can rely completely on my feet. So satisfyed! Thank you so mutch!!!

solution women's

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.
