I don't know how Scarpa slipped under my radar. I've always been a die hard Sportiva fan, but have owned easily over 20 pairs of climbing shoes from different companies. I always like trying new things, and them selling them if I don't like them. I used to work in the industry, and took advantage of the deals. :)
I got these when I destroyed my Muira VS (amazing) and wanted a new pair, but gave these a try... I've seriously never had shoes fit like this. GLOVE! I've also never found a slipper that I didn't think sucked @ss after heel hooking in them. Slippers have always been a serious no no for me, but these stay on.
I don't feel like these will be my all around go-to shoes, my Optimus Primes (also a surprise) will be for that. But these will be my go to shoes for the hard boulders.
Too bad they look like a freaking carrot. UGLY!
