Susan Rogers wrote a review of La Sportiva Solution Vibram XS Grip2 Climbing Shoe - Women's on April 29, 2014
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size
At long last, there's a female counterpart to the Solution and a shoe that's a step more aggressive than the Miura VS. I've been loving, pair after pair, my Miuras, but have found them slightly lacking on the pumpiest of overhanging routes...enter the Women's Solution.
First impressions - jeeze louise, what a powerful shoe...once I managed to get it on, that is. There was certainly a bit of (mildly embarrasing) struggling on my first few days with them. When they were on, though, I was impressed right off the bat with the work Sportiva did with dialing in the fit. The men's Solution always felt a bit weird in the toe box and heel.
Still not quite broken in yet, but each time I climb with them it's been getting better and better. I went from pretty heavily skeptical when I first tried them on, to extremely stoked when I went back for another few rounds in the gym.
Bottom line - aggressive, powerful, and allover kind of merciless in the fit department. Love them, though. This is the shoe I've been looking for to help bump up my bouldering game.
Went for the same size in these as my Miuras. Wish I could try on a half size up, though, as they're TIGHT.
