NOTE: Only available at our CBD branch - 173 Longmarket Street - or online. This is the first shoe La Sportiva has ever made that combines their classic, proven Solution fit with a brand new, ultra-sticky rubber. The result is an aggressive shoe that fits like your favourite slipper and holds on like your favourite vice grip.

The Solution has been a staple of the climbing world for years. The Comp model offers a performance fit and a sensitive feel for a wide range of foot types and climbing styles. The single Velcro closure offers an easy on and off, while the slingshot rand system is designed to allow your foot to have full contact with the shoe without limiting your mobility. This model also features La Sportiva's P3 midsole technology which is designed to provide responsive cushioning as well as arch support.

Made for the most advanced climbers, the Solution is your ticket to the top. The downturned toe box and power strap provide an aggressive fit that allows you to really crank down on your heel. The extra-stiff midsole makes it incredibly responsive, but also needs a little break-in time before it becomes your best friend on vertical terrain. We've all heard of "breaking in" a new pair of shoes, but this one takes some effort, especially if you've got narrow feet.
