It's always worth watching these for Stevie Haston's presentation, never mind what he's promoting.

Does anyone happen to know which shoes La Sportiva is going to be producing women's models of?

The video say that there are four completely new women's versions, and one that's existed before but not been sold in the UK. But not what they actually are.

Thanks! Haven't the women's Solutions and Katanas been available for a while, though?

I know a couple of narrow-footed guys who've found that the women's Solutions are their perfect shoes, and who have been proudly rocking the tie-dye pink.
