Wrapped in sticky Vibram(R) XS Grip2 rubber and drastically downturned, the La Sportiva Solution climbing shoes hook, grab, edge and smear on any feature you can find at the gym or outdoors.


You're known as a problem-solver extraordinarie, so it's only fitting your favorite climbing shoe is the La Sportiva Women's Solution Vibram XS Grip2 Climbing Shoe. Made for women's feet, which tend to be narrower, straighter, and occupy less volume than their male counterparts, this downturned shoe will cause the corners of your mouth to turn up with joy, and the high degree of asymmetry lets your toes wiggle into hooks previously uncatchable with other shoe bait. The Lorica synthetic leather upper might relax a bit once it gets to know you (just keep that in mind for shoe sizing). The P3 (Permanent Power Platform) keeps this shoe on point and helps it maintain its aggressive downturned silhouette. A robust rubber toe cap keeps your digits dancing, and the whiff of lining up there doesn't dampen sensitivity. Hook your heel on just about anything with the combination of a molded 3-D heel cup and Lock Harness System. With this much power from your heel, your arms won't feel like overcooked spaghetti at the end of the day. The Vibram XS Grip2 sole takes rigid and sticky to new heights. The 1. 1mm LaspoFlex midsole only lives under your toes for an extra hit of torsional rigidity when you need a firm footing to continue your upward trajectory. The Fast Lacing System combines thin webbing and a solo hook-and-loop closure flap to hasten the time it takes to get ready to rock. From overhung boulders to steep sport routes, the Solution addresses most issues before they turn into full-blown problems.
