La Sportiva Solution

Climbers that have used the La Sportiva Solution shoe (€145) say that it feels almost like cheating - it makes you climb that much better. These sport climbing, bouldering and competition shoes have a superb heel cup, hook and loop closure, and loads of rubber on the toe box for those who use their feet well.
