Great Shoe, Check the Fit
the solution is an amazingly aggressive shoe, thats why you see it everywhere. i have seen lots of rookies rockin it though, so felt i should speak up. this shoe is designed for hard bouldering and steep sport. if you are a beginning climber, buy whatever is on sale because your feet will hurt from this shoe and you're just going to beat it up. if you are climbing slab or up to 5.11, (not that magically at 5.12 this is the shoe of choice) chances are you will not be happy you're wearing this shoe. go a little less aggressive with the muiras, or even a little flatter with the katanas. the last two edge great, just match the shoe to your style of climbing. solutions will be softer and not designed for those styles.
everyone i know that owns this shoe loves them. i tried them and my feet aren't pointy enough; i had dead space in the toe. the evolv shamans are very similar, but are more rounded. both great, just get the one that fits right.
