Gear Question

for those of you who have or currently own...

for those of you who have or currently own the La Sportiva Solution, how much have the shoes stretched? i recently purchased these and downsized a full size and a half(39.0) from my street shoe size and i could only tolerate having them on my feet for a couple pitches max.

That sounds like its a bit tight - IMHO. If you're only using this for harder bouldering problems and red point sport routes, then perhaps it would be worth it. Personally I find MOST shoes (this one included) will stretch a half to a quarter size. There are of course exceptions, but if you're already experiencing this much pain, then a bigger size would probably be better. Hope this helps!
