My Bouldering and Sport Climbing Go-To Shoe!!!

This is a fantastic climbing shoe. The way that it is designed, when fit properly and broken in, allows you to put all your power through your big toe. What does that mean? That means micro edges, a decent smearing region in the toe/ball-of-the-foot region, and a shoe that you can really get some good purchase for dynos in! The rubber on this shoe is outstanding! The molded heel cup is great for heel hooks and the fastening system allows you to tension the shoe to your own specific needs depending on your individual feet. Toe hooks are great when the rubber over the toe of the shoes comes into play. I can send things in this shoe that I cannot send in any other. It makes that much difference. Due to my foot shape and arch, the split sole and the width of the toe box are great, too! No other shoe performs like this one does for me. I have tried a lot of different shoes, and I keep coming back to this one. The Solutions are the answer to every climbing problem!!!

Great shoes, very stiff, ill fitting heel

The solutions are powerful, great shoes that are high performance, perfect for steep bouldering or sport climbing. I'm a size 7.5 in street shoe, I wear a size 38 in these shoes. They sacrifice sensitivity for power and stiffness. They have issues with the heel cup - it's very bulging and bulbous, leaving many people including myself with dead space in the heel. These causes a "farting sound," but more importantly leaves room for the heel to wiggle and slip out of the shoe, even when tightened and properly downsized, which happened to me often. Fantastic shoes though. I converted to the women's version for additional sensitivity and a smaller heel, and finally to the Scarpa VSRs.

Epic sport climbing shoe

This shoe performs epically and grips even the smallest of holds. Easy on and off with just one Velcro. There is a reason most of the hardest climbs are completed wearing these shoes.
