These might be the best climbing shoes on the market. The 3d heel cup suctions perfectly, and the toe box is large enough to be comfortable without sacrificing performance. The little dome feature under the toes drives force to the edge of the shoe making this shoe edge super well despite the seemingly round outer edges. The heel hooks awesomely and the P3 rand keeps everything down turned even after a whole year of hard use. I'm a V5/6 Boulderer and a 5.12 climber, and I've tried a lot of shoes, and this one is the best. Wearing Solutions is like cheating. WARNING: Size down aggressively! I wear a 8/8.5 street shoe, and I'm wearing a 38.5 Solution, and I COULD stand to size down to 38.

These are good shoes really sticky rubber and I have a narrow low volume foot so this shoe fits me well. Sizing is a little different than most other brands I've tried. They are sized a little larger comparatively. I would where a 42 street shoe and I sized down to 39. They hurt a little bit maybe a 39.5 would have been better, but this will work. To make these shoes work I would size down at least 1.5 U.S. sizes 2 would probably be better. Pay attention to the La Sportiva size chart not just the Euro conversion. The heel is also fairly narrow which works well for me, may not work for others.

Amazing shoes, however, I would not recommend these for someone just getting into climbing. They will actually make it harder for you to climb because of the precise down-turned toe. I would recommend these to someone who boulders a lot on steep inclines and roof climbs.

Out standing bouldering shoe! The heel is amazing; it’s actually very thick rubber on the heel. They edge and hook very well. Very good for hard sport routes and bouldering. The only down side is that they are kinda hard to get on and off. Once they are on they are fairly comfortable for a serious bouldering show. I wear a 9.5 street shoe and I got a size 39 in these. I wear a 9 in Anasazi VCS, and a 39.5 in Muira VS. I would consider a smaller size but would need some one with a smaller foot to break them in for me, because when they are new they are almost impossible to get on. I am worried about the strap breaking on me, so I don’t strap them down real tight.

Perfect! If you are like me and have a really big arch on your foot or just need a shoe to fit like a glove, this is the shoe for you! The sizing is about a half smaller than your street shoe. For example, I wear an 11 street and got a 44 (10.5) in these are they are perfect! Not too big or to small! If you love climbing and want to get a nice shoe, no need to look any farther!
