La Sportiva footwear is built and offered on European half sizes, which are smaller increments than US half sizes. This gives them four extra sizes per size run, and ultimately gives you a better fit.

Please review La Sportiva's size conversion chart above to help determine your ideal size. Below you will find additional information about how to fit and break in the different styles of La Sportiva footwear, which will also help guide you to the correct size.

• As a general rule soft shoes like climbing shoes require a tighter fit, or about two to three sizes smaller than your street shoe size.
• La Sportiva recommends you fit your trad climbing shoes one to two sizes under your street shoe size.
• La Sportiva offers a lot of lasts, and each offers a different fit and feel. Remember to factor in potential stretching.
• Unlined slip-lasted shoes tend to stretch a bit more than lined shoes, or about one full size.
• Lined shoes stretch about a half size.

• PERFORMANCE FIT - offers a high performance fit and a downturned last.
• TECH FIT - a more technical fit and a last with neutral profile.
• COMFORT FIT - a comfortable fit and a last with more volume and a neutral profile.

• Find your US Size in the guide above, then find the Euro Size conversion and add one half size.
• The ideal size holds your toes ever so slightly away from the front of the boot while the lacing system is snug across the top of your arch.
• If you can try to boots on beforehand, make sure you wear the same size and weight socks you would typically wear with the boots, and any orthotics or custom footbeds you use.
• It is ideal to fit boots later in the day since feet are prone to swell slightly as a day progresses.
• Wear your boots indoors only until you are confident about the fit.
• Your foot should feel snug (not tight) from the arch back into the heel pocket with just a minimum lift as you walk. If your heel lifts make sure the lacing is snug and not too loose.
• Your toes should NOT touch the front of the boot, but when you kick the toe into the floor, you should know where the front of the boot is. You want just enough room to wiggle your toes.
• If your toes or sides of your feet feel squished, most likely the width is too narrow and the boot will not work for you.
• If your toes touch the front of the boot, most likely it is too short and you need the next half size up.
• Make sure to keep all original packaging that came with your boots until you are sure that you are happy with your purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy them if you can and watch the sloppy foot work to make them last Solutions are the best fitting shoe I have ever worn. My big toe fits snugly but comfortably with just the right down turn for great power and control. My other toes curl into a comfortably shaped well at the front edge adding support. The nylon strap is light but plenty solid. The shoes fit like slippers to begin with the straps just help customize the fit and add a sense of security. The structure of the heel is fabulous, pulling you down into it for an amazingly secure feel in the shoe and on rock. If there is a downside to these shoes it is due to performance rubber, if your footwork gets sloppy they will lose their sharp edges quickly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Shoe Ever Pros,,These shoes are incredibly aggressive and great with toe/heel hooks and amazing on small footholds. I have really flat feet, and these are the only shoes that give me solid heel hooks.,,Cons,,Also, the strap on the shoes has broken after 10 months of use - And that goes for all the pairs of these Solutions that I've owned. There are companies that can repair the straps and also resole the shoes, but I always just end up buying a new pair of shoes since the stench from the shoes becomes unbearable. ,,Despite the small flaws in the shoes, I absolutely love these shoes. Will continue to purchase these Solutions...especially from Moosejaw!!!,,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great toe, limited stretch, and won't let go of the wall unless you ask it to politely. Cons: These shoes are a great comparison to Muira Vs, Shamans, or Team 5.10's. Personally I bought them for the awesome toe and how form fitting the inner "sock" is.,,,, I have heard of issues down the line with the strap tearing/detaching from the Velcro, however after wearing the shoe I see no reason to crank down the strap that much. I could easily do some intermediate climbs even without the straps on.,,,,Stretch: Very minimal. I put on the shoes expecting a world of hurt (normally a size 43 in climbing but I bought 42.5 for the fit). I was recovering from an ingrown-toe removal on my big toe and let me just say the shoes did great. ,,,,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome shoe. I'm mainly a boulder. I've been pretty loyal to the La Sportiva Katana's. The Solution's are true to fit of the Katana. I wear a 10.5 and found the 41.5 is a great fit for me. The Solution's are great so far. I'm curious of how long the toe will hold up. My Katana's seemed to only hold about three months at climbing about three times weekly. The only con, they're a hot shoe. The re-enforced upper rubber and lining gets a little toasty in the sun. Throw on the flops between climbs and the con becomes a pro! Other than that they seem to stand up to the hype, great edger, great heel and the harness strap keeps them snug. Try'em out!,,,,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Overhung/Aggressive Climbing Shoe Money Can Buy When it comes to overhung sport routes, or hard bouldering, or climbing on holds as bad for your feet as the miniscule nothings you pull down on then this is the shoe for you. The shoe has the capability of holding rubber on the micro niblet that other shoes will peel right off, and toe and heel hooks will feel like you’re cheating. If you are a techy face or slab climber, this shoe is not for you. Because of its aggressive nature, smearing or standing on your toes is not ideal. This shoe is highly specific to the styles mentioned above. Aspiring or super technical climbers just need to keep in mind this is not a shoe for everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best shoe I've owned! I had to buy a full size down perhaps even a size and a half because once you break them in they can stretch out a bit. The one strap synch makes hitting gym routes all that much quicker and less of a hassle when taking off your shoes to belay and putting them back on to hop on the next route. If you’re looking for a shoe that will swaddle your foot like a new born baby this is it! The design of the shoe envelopes your foot and creates a tight fit all around, the rubber sticks well especially after use and combined with the form fit of the shoe it performs like no other, your dollars are well spent on this product guaranteed!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from there's a reason everyone has them Along the same lines as many of the other reviews, these shoes are RAD! The rubber is awesome, amazing heel for hooking, nice toe rand (be careful not to scrape it the wrong way though; quite possible it could peel off), great moc-type fit (makes the velcro strap somewhat unnecessary, which is good since it has a tendency to break- this is an easy fix). For fit I sized down from about a US7 street shoe to 36s in Solutions.,,,,Features make it great for overhangs, edging, heeling, & toeing on nothing. Smearing isn't so great until they're really broken in. My next shoes will definitely be la sports if they're anything like these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Piece of art. I learned to completely trust my feet in these shoes. You can be on the chossiest piece of choss pebbles and find something to put this sharp toe on. They look aggressive and they are. My friend bought them way too small and says they hurt too much to wear on everything. Mine have stretched to perfectly complement my feet. I strongly recommend these shoes. The strap cinches down on your foot like a lace-up but has the ease of velcro. The heel is a little bulbous. I have had the heel pop off on heel hooks, and though I think an even smaller size would prevent this from happening, I'm not willing to endure the pain in my toes.
