The Solution from La Sportiva has earned an Editor's Choice award in Climbing's 2007 shoe review.

“Design-wise, the Solution represents a significant step forward,” states Climbing editor John Connor. The patented Permanent Power Platform™ (P3) keeps the original down turned shape of the shoe while it “simultaneously provided support to the foot and transmitted power to the front or back of the shoe, depending on where it was needed.” The Solution's molded 3D heel cup and patent-pending Lock Harness™ ensure nuclear heel hooking capabilities while the Fast Closure System (FCS) is quick and affords a secure fit. Hailed as a master of “hooking, pulling, pockets and steep edging,” this high performance shoe is the right solution to modern bouldering problems and steep sport routes.

Celebrating their 79th anniversary in 2007, La Sportiva brings an incredibly strong alpine mountaineering and climbing heritage to their entire line of performance footwear. This core experience enables La Sportiva to offer the most versatile technical climbing, mountaineering, Mountain Running and trail sport shoes on the market. What's more, La Sportiva believes in the dedication and feedback of their amazing roster of athletes who are some of the strongest climbers, mountaineers, and mountain runners in the world.
