Boulder, Colo. – La Sportiva is proud to announce that their latest climbing footwear innovation, the Solution, has been given a Rock & Ice Best In Gear (BIG) award. Every year, Rock and Ice gear testers trash ice picks, blow out shoes, rip gear loops and decimate superlight equipment. The Solution not only withstood the rigors of real-life use, but also proved itself a cut above the norm.

The solution was recognized for its aggressive shape, radically down-turned toe, and it's surgically precise feel. In addition, after a year of hard use, the Rock & Ice test team found that the Solutions were the “only shoes in a vast quiver of slippers to have retained their aggressive shape… we now regard the Solutions as one of the best high-end slippers on the market.”

“When we designed the Solution, we wanted to create the absolute best high performance slipper on the market. We put all of our design resources into the Solution,” said Jonathan Lantz, president of La Sportiva N.A. “In next generation of La Sportiva climbing shoes, we will continue to use these technologies we developed with the Solution, like the patent-pending Lock Harness™ for secure heel hooking and the Figure 8 tension rand, to elevate the performance of all of our entire line.”
