Problem? Solution! The name says it all. Designed specifically for bouldering, this shoe is designed to deliver POWER! The Solution wants the steep stuff. A revolutionary midsole design that uses an elastomer material, the Pp3 (Permanent Power Platform) which allows for this shoe to maintain its aggressive, down-turned toe even after being resoled. The stickiest Vibram® rubber addresses every point of rock contact.
