The better equivalent to La Sportiva Solutions

I've used it several times
Size Bought:

For whatever reason, I decided to try a different shoe…maybe I wasn’t totally thrilled with either my muiras or solutions. Did some research and these seemed like the best thing for technical sport climbing and bouldering. I LOVE THEM. They fit super well, and comfortable while performing strongly, and have already changed my climbing. If you are wondering about size: I wear a 39 in LS muiras, a 39.5 in LS solutions, and a 40.5 in Scarpa vs Instincts. Maybe could have gotten away with a half size down, but these fit super snug and perform well (I’m over the days of cramped feet).

Instinct VS Climbing Shoe

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Size Bought:
5' 6"

I absolutely love these shoes. I purchased them as a replacement for the La Sportiva Otaki's that I had been wearing. I was looking for a shoe that was a bit softer and easier on my feet. The rubber on these Scarpa's allows for precise footwork on technical climbs (I've tested them out at both the gym and outdoors on limestone and granite). I fluctuate between a 37.5 and 39 with climbing shoes, wear a size 7.5/8 in street shoes, and found that these are snug for me in the 38.5.
