A combination of Lorica (synthetic fabric) and leather come together to provide strength and give with every move you make.

The 4mm outsole is the hardest and stickiest rubber, XS Grip, to get you through the impossible holds. This red headed beauty will gladly take you to the top.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Narrow Feet! I have worn this shoe about 5 times now and am in love. I am a size 101/2 or 11 womens street shoe but my foot is AA narrow. I bought a size 39 or womens 7 1/2. In retrospect I should have gotten a 40.(I have the la sportiva solutions in a 38.5 and they are comfortable). These shoes are great. I can heel hook like a dream, the heel cup sucks my foot in when I was swimming in the solutions. I found them comfortable at first but after a few hours of climbing my feet were done. I ended up soaking them in boiling water and then wearing them around my house which has stretched them out quite a bit. I love steep boulders ans lead routes so the agressiveness is amazing. I would not recomend as a first agressive shoe. The solutions are great to ease into agressive shoes. But if you have narrow feet like me these are a great shoe. I highly recomend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoe! These shoes are great for sport climbing. the heel cup fits me better than any other shoe I've owned. Be advised that these shoes will stretch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Testarossa: Lace up Solutions w/o the Bulbous Heel Summary: For those who like the Solution fit, but want a heel that you can feel. Or you can think of them as a more aggressive Muira. Fit: The shoe fits comfortably with the soft leather wrapping around your foot. The shoe will slightly stretch as a result, but I have yet to notice any significant amount of stretching. Design: Not as bold as its other La Sportiva brethren, it's looks feel more contemporary with the red and yellow leather. Assessment: Particularly adept at bouldering, steeper climbing, edging, and vertical climbs, this shoe's stiff midsole transmits power succinctly for these types of climbs. Conversely, the rubber is not as helpful on slabby routes or problems requiring smearing. Bottom Line: A classic, no-frills, good all-around bouldering shoe. Despite the technological advancements of its counterparts, the Testarossas are still held in high regard. As for me: I switch between these shoes and my dragons depending on the climb, its requirements, or how I feel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lace ups. Same rand & platform as the solution, but with laces. These shoes do everything well except heel hook. Buy them! Unless you have big feet. Then you'll look like RM.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great performing shoe It seems like the sizing has changed or the demo shoes I tried before were significantly stretched out. I've been wearing 36 Miuras for many years and many pair of shoes. I can comfortably do multi-pitch climb without even slipping them off on belays, but I could not stand the new 36 Testarossas on my feet for 5 minutes around the house. I've exchanged them for a half size larger, still waiting for their arrival, but I know they are awesome shoe after trying a demo pair for the entire night at the gym (great edging decent fit)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Edge Masters I am a fairly new climber and jumped into a pair of Futuras that I sized down a couple of sizes because that's "what you're supposed to do". Long story short, they hurt my feet. So I stopped wearing them picked up a pair of testarossas and I am extremely happy with them. They edge like a dream. If you are looking for a step up from the beginner shoes you have had sense you started this is the shoe for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing shoe This shoe performs flawlessly from techy-slab to steep jug-hauls. These have been my main outdoor shoe for about a year. Resoled after 6-months or so with 5.10 rubber and I like them even more now! I wear 9.5-10 street shoe and the 43(US 10) is snug and took some stretching before they were comfortable at all but I get my street shoes snugger than most so this may not be a good guide for you.

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.
