      Comments about La Sportiva Solution Climbing Shoe:

      Living in Michigan without great outdoor climbing nearby, I mostly use these at the gym. Like any shoe, they're not going to make you a great climber. You have to do that yourself...yada, yada. However, these shoes allow you to do the things that a great climber must know how to do without limitation. The heel cup is the most secure I've ever felt when heel-hooking. For getting your toe into a tight hold on an overhang, this shoe is fantastic. Smearing is still possible, but I would say it's not what these shoes are designed for. These are aggressive shoes and they will be uncomfortable at first. Buy them small because they will stretch. I am a size 10 and I wear a European size 41 in these. That's around an 8.5 US. Overall, these are awesome when your climbs require the most out of your shoes.

        This is my first climbing shoe, and I love it. The all rubber toe makes for great footholds and the curved, rubber heal makes for a tight grip when flagging.

                        I just got my second pair of the Solutions and these are the best shoes I have ever climbed in. The velcro strap really sucks your heel into the heel cup and the down turned toe acts like a falcon claw on the rock. Great shoe for steep bouldering and sport routes, and these do well on slab if you can stand the pain. If you are looking for an aggressive pair of shoes, look no further.

                          I have the muiras vs for women in the 34.5, I've heard suggestions to size them a half size down. What would be the best size to get them in the solutions? Do they stretch as much as muiras?

                            The La Sportiva Solution Climbing Shoe stretch as much as the Muiras. It is a good idea to size down a 1/2 size.
