In the year of its 80th anniversary, La Sportiva
is proud to announce that its revolutionary climbing shoe Solution
(which received the title of IF design award in 2007 for its ultimate combination of technical characteristics and aesthetic contents), has now gained another exclusive title: The Best In Gear award
(BIG), from specialist American magazine Rock & Ice!Solution
distinguished itself in tests for its aggressive shape
and unique characteristic of maintaining its shape over time
; even after the most demanding tests it was the only shoe to maintain its curved shape
. "This alone would been sufficient to win the title of best climbing shoe", states Rock & Ice. However, in addition to this, Solution boasts a series of innovative patents such as 'Lock Harness' (which brings heel locks to another level of accuracy), and the original fast lacing system
. Testers and athletes from around the world were pleasantly surprised at the outstanding performance levels and the extremely innovative look
that adds to the aesthetic value of the shoe. What is the Solution's DNA? Performance, research, design, aesthetics.
2007 saw an evolutionary leap forward in the world of climbing shoes and the Best in Gear Award confirms the validity of this choice.
