Noelwrote a review of La Sportiva Solution Vibram XS Grip2 Climbing Shoe on April 15, 2015
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
I don't exactly remember what I said but I'll try my best to recall the main points:</br>
1. This shoe fits PERFECTLY for my foot shape. I tend to downsize only by a half size (i.e. half a cm, 38.0). This size is perfect but if temps are warm, this size is unbearably painful due to foot swelling (which is natural in warm temps). However during winter months (prime climbing season), that's not a problem and this shoe performs like no other. You're pretty much cheating by wearing this shoe.</br>
2. The only problem with this shoe is the closure system; it's literally made to expedite the shoe's obsolescence. However just wrap a piece of athletic tape around the points that come through the loop holes..this will extend the lifetime of the shoe dramatically!
