We have both the 5.10 Team and the Dragon in UK 8 in stock.
Price R1,573. Includes delivery.
Dragon: https://www.mountainmailorder.co.za/index.php?_a=viewProd&productId=2308
Team: https://www.mountainmailorder.co.za/index.php?_a=viewProd&productId=2094
La Sportiva doesn't bring in the Solutions any more. :(

Daniel, if you looking for downturn shoes larger than UK 9:
5.10 only import downturn toes shoes up to size UK9. Little demand for larger performance sizes in SA, sorry.
Alternatives:
Try the La Sportiva Miura or the Evolv Shaman.

The Evolv Shaman just won Editors Choice from Climbing Magazine in the USA.

Ebert, La Sportiva has stock of the Pythons now... Those would be good for you for Rocklands. They run the same size as solutions... Contact Mountain Pursuits...
I hate this real world place... I'd be more than happy to live out there rather...

Hey Guys
A friend wanted Solutions ,so on my trip to Europe we checked out some stores, in Belgium, Spain, Switzerland And France. Not one of these countries or at least the 8 or 10 shops I visited had any. If you can't find your La Sportiva's its not the shop or our country that you should snikker at, its La Sportiva that just isn't handling the demand. A few of the shops have stopped stocking it because they cant keep telling there clients the stock is on order.

The shops here are not bad at all considering the small market they supply.

Garvin
Ps I did come home with 4 new pairs of shoes though.
