Better than solutions.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I've always used La Sportiva Skwamas and Solutions and while I did like them I always found the heel to be sloppy. I talked to a few friends at the gym that switched from solutions to these and they all were saying how much better the heel fits. I finally purchased a pair and for anyone looking for size reccomendation I say go half a size up from your solutions. I am a size 9.5/10 in street shoes and I wear a 9 in solutions and a 9.5 in these Scarpa VSRs. This shoe shares the same Vibram XS Grip rubber as the Solution so you'll feel right at home in the performance aspect of the shoe. Where this shoe separates itself is the heel. Putting these shoes on and taking them off you'll realize how incredibly good the heel sucks on to your foot. I don't see myself going back to Solutions and this is now going to be my goto bouldering shoe.
