La Sportiva Skwama Women's Climbing Shoe

The La Sportiva Skwama Women's is fairly similar to the Solution except with a slightly softer midsole and with the sturdier S-Heel to improve heel blocking. With its high sensitivity and aggressive shape it works best as a performance shoe - hard bouldering and overhanging sport climbing. Being very soft, it works well on slabs and, with its large patch of toe rubber, toe-hooks.

La Sportiva's "women's" models are characterised by a softer midsole and overall structure, not a lower volume. For a stiffer version that will suit heavier climbers, try the Skwama Men's.

Amazing shoe

I absolutely love these shoes! It is comfortable but at the same time, it has a nice fit. I am a street size 40 and downsized to 37.5; however, next time I would go for a 37 because my heel slips out of it sometimes when heel hooking. It was hard to put on the first time, but after I broke them in, they were amazing- it moulds incredibly to your foot shape and performs well on both boulder and lead routes. I specifically like the large toe patch, which is a feature not many shoes have, which makes it great for the cave section in my local gym. It is also a really soft shoe which makes foot placements really precise; however, it does seem to wear out faster that my stiffer shoes. Highly recommend if you're a competitive climber but if you use these all the time, it may not be worth it

Comfort and performace

Shoes fit my somewhat narrow feet really well.
Downsized a tone. From street 40 to a skwama 37. i wear the Testarossa and Solution in size 37.5. Definitely narrower overall, especially in the heel when compared to the mens versions.
