Wrapped in sticky Vibram® XS Grip™ rubber and drastically down-turned, the Solution sports a molded 3D heel cup and the patented P3® Power Platform which retains the downturned shape of the shoe. This creates a shoe that hooks, grabs, edges and smears on any feature you can find. The Lock Harness System® surrounds your foot and unifies it with the upper for a perfect fit. The highly adjustable Fast Lacing System® lets you tailor the quick closing hook and loop closure for a highly personalized fit. All said and done, this shoe will let you climb harder.

Solution
The updated Solution feels similar to the previous version, with a powerful toe, rubber in the right spots for toe hooks and climbs well on most angles of stone. The heal feels more fitted and the wider straps are great additions to an already classic shoe!

You Got a Problem
The Solution has long been in my quiver for hard bouldering and steep sport climbing. I've owned like a dozen pairs of these over the past decade. I love the aggressiveness of the toe, which feels like it pulls you into the wall. The heel fits pretty well and the P3 pulls the shoe forward. There can sometimes be small gaps on the side of the heel but the narrowness of the hell cup still performs well on the tech-nine heel hooks of Yosemite's boulders and the aggressive toe box helps for the steep sport at Jailhouse.

Updated Classic
Same great shoe but with wider and more durable straps! Patch of toe rubber on top of forefoot feels slightly thicker than previous models and gives the toe-box a slightly different feel, breaks in nicely and I can hardly tell the difference after 10 pitches. Favorite shoe of all time.
