Confidence booster, great for ladies too

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit:Runs small
  • Height: 5'4"
    Size Purchased: 37

Amazing shoe. I got a bunch of difference shoes to test out, and i used this one after the five ten anasazi on a small overhang artificial boulder. Wow! i went up much faster and my feet were so much more precise and secure with toe locks, heel hooks etc! Then i realized it was the shoe, not me, and i came back down to earth :)

Now, the ever difficult question, sizing!

This shoe runs smaller for me than other Scarpa. I am a street size 6-6.5 women; 36-36.5 european and i bought a 37 in the boostic. They are very snug on, and i would not say standing in them is comfortable. They feel good climbing though. These would compare to a 36.5 in vapor v or instinct.

I have sportiva women solutions in 36; miuras in 35.5 for further reference

Photo, coming out from the overhang, i have the left toe jammed in, the right heel hooked on the side, i was so secure on the feet i basically stood up next...! love these shoes

What to say about this shoe? This Shoe is a Crusher of Stone! I love everything about this shoe. I have a very wide foot with a high arch, it was always a pain to find a shoe that had performance fit but didn't kill me. I like to wear my shoes at a comfortable tight! I have this pair in a 44 for Bouldering and 45 for Sport Climbing. The way Scarpa designed the shoe is Amazing, Powerful but comfortable. Scarpa did a mixture of Suede and Loirca: Suede will stretch and Lorica will not. What this does is allows the shoe to stretch where you need it and keep the last of the shoe. Be prepared for a break in period!

Boostic: My go to shoes!

True to Size

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:True to size
  • Height: 5'6"
    Weight: 125 lbs

I've never owned a pair of climbing shoes before that were actually sized according to the street shoe size, but these are right on the money. I wear a women's 7.5 and I bought the 38.5. They were exceptionally painful to break in, but after a few sessions in the gym they were ready to take to the crag with very little, to no pain.

I wear a 42.5 in the Scarpa Feroce (great shoe). I have a pretty full foot and it sounds like these might run a little larger? What say you all?

The Boostic is going to feel a bit smaller than the Feroce. The Boostic has more of a hooked profile where the Feroce is a bit more flat. Should be the same 42.5 but, the Boostic will feel tighter which is what is intended by Scarpa.

Feel free to hit me up at or 801-736-6398.

how would you compare these to the five ten Anasazi VCS? , i liked these but i wanted to try something else, I do a lot of gym climbing and outside bouldering, would these be a good shoe for me? Also i wear a size 9.5 in street shoes so what size would you recommend?

The Boostic is a much more aggressive shoe than the Anasazi. It's an awesome, awesome shoe, but I don't think it's going to be super comparable to how the Anasazi climbs. If you are wanting to try something that is on the more aggressive end, then the Boostic is a great option, but if you're trying to replicate the feel you get from the Anasazis, you might be best looking at alternatives. As far as sizing for the Boostics is concerned, I would suggest trying out a 42.5 and/or 43.

Do these fit similarly to other Scarpa shoes? I have a pair of Force Xs currently.

Scarpa climbing shoes fit pretty consistently, yes. If you have the option to try them on, it's always a good idea, but going off other Scarpa sizing is definitely a good starting place.


Scarpa Boostics

    Best shoes i have ever had. Before these i had shamans which were great but the durability was bad because of the rubber. I found these and based in everything i read i irdered them. I have had them for 3 months now and they are barely worn. I cinsistently climb climb 3-4 days a week for 1.5-2..5 hours. They destroy anything overhung or vertical and let you stand on anything. They are also super secure kn your foot because of the two straps and the fact that they are a slipper style shoe.

    Quick question for you - did you get the same size or size up (or down) from the Shaman's? How does the stretch compare? Thanks in advance!

    the both stretch about a quarter size. i had a 9.5 in the shaman and a 42 in the boostic



    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size

    I have been climbing in these shoes for 8 months and just wore a hole in the toe. These are my gym and outdoor shoes, I have been consistently climbing in these 5 days a week for 1-1.5 hrs per session. They are great for steep and technical edging. LOVE the suction these shoes have from the moment you step into them. I wear a 9.5 street shoe and bought these in a 42.5. They were a little tight on the break in period but now are very comfortable. I have a smaller heel so there is a little bit of space right there. I have never had a problem heel hooking anything in these though.



    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size

    I am able to place my feet on anything and feel confident doing so with these. These are my go to shoe. I love when I first put them on and they suction to my foot and I am ready to send.

    Holy Sh*t

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    These are the most comfortable climbing shoes I've ever worn. Never have I felt more comfortable on my toes.

    I've got a bit of a wide foot and had tried to find a pair of La Sportivas that fit well, but never could. Before the Boostics I wore the Instincts and loved them. After the soles wore out I picked these up and couldn't be happier. I highly recommend them.

    Hey Nathaniel,
    What size street shoe and what size Boostics are you in?


    Zee Best!

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size

    If I had to describe these shoes I'd say they are the Ferrarri of climbing shoes. Although they aren't the best for smearing on steep angle slab routes, they more than make up for that in everything else. They're my go to for any steep, overhung or thin, highly technical face routes. I wouldn't be afraid to say that these bad boys may even help you send higher grades then you thought were possible. I love them so much I ended up picking up a second pair for gym use. A must for anyone who wants to climb hard!

    I was curious about the sizing of these guys. I noticed that many people went up a couple sizes in them and was wondering if you could share your experience and reasoning as to why you went up that far. I am a size 7 womens street shoe, a 36 in the LaSpo Testarossa's and a 36.5 in the Scarpa Mago's. My feet are also pretty wide... Also, how far up should I go? I like a tight fit and I'm used to the break in process. Thanks!

    I have a pair of scarpa vantages and boostics, when buying the boostics i thought i would get the same size however i went from 43 euro to a 45 for the boostics. The down turn takes the length out but you still need that comfort in the toe, i tried on a 43 boostic my feet were so cramped i couldn't last five minutes in them. But as you said, start tight and break them in, best advice is go and try a pair on.

    does anybody know how these compare to the shamans in terms of size and overall performance

    Hey Brendan,

    Both shoes are going to fit a medium wide foot well. Other things to consider, the Boostic has a lower volume heel and the Shaman tends to stretch out a little bit more over time.

    Performance wise, the Boostic is fantastic for edging, heel hooks really well thanks to the low volume heel and the rubber on the toe definitely aids in toe hooking. The design of the Shaman provides performance and a ton of power to the toe while still being comfortable. They also have rubber on the toe which makes them great for toe hooking. The Shaman has thicker rubber which can make outside edging a little difficult as it tends to roll off small edges. The trax rubber is very durable.


    Great for technical edging

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size

    Very stiff shoe compared to most of the rest of the Scarpa line. Shines in bouldering, but seemed to me to be more suited to vertical or moderately overhanging routes. The stiff edge combined with a gentle downturn is potent when you need to take a lot of weight on small feet while still pulling into the wall. I first tested these shoes on a vertical route near my house revolves around a tenuous cross with microedge feet. Normally I do this move dynamically, so I was shocked when I could stand there virtually hands free in a fresh pair of the Boostiks.

    Seems to run a little (1/4 size?) small.


    great shoe !

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    I'm using this shoe since 1 year and it's one of my favorite shoe ever.

    Supportive and fantastic edging shoe. Could wear it really tight but still comfy. The toe box is very precise.

    Street shoe around 44.5.

    Boostic : 43.5

    Instinct VS : 43

    5.10 Anasazi VCS : 43

    5.10 Quantum : 44

    La Sportiva Testarossa : 41


    Best Performer for Vert-Tech Climbing

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:Runs small

    The Boostic is my top choice for demanding technical edging on slightly-less-than vertical to slightly overhanging terrain. It is stiff and holds tiny edges like a champ but doesn't feel like wearing clogs, nor does it feel like its rolling off of edges, as softer-rubbered shoes can. This inspires great trust and helps avoid the dreaded foot popping that can happen when trying to put just the right amount of weight into a teeny-tiny foot edge. I feel like these run a bit tighter than other Scarpa climbing shoes.


    Awesome climbing shoes

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times
    • Fit:True to size

    Awesome downturn, incredibly sticky rubber, fit true to size. I wear Scarpa Vapors and they both fit perfectly in soze 42, I wear a size 9 street shoes. My feet tend to be a little wider at the toes, so I wasn't able to wear the five ten anasazi or sportiva solutions as they pinched in on my feet. I predominantly use these for bouldering, but could easily see myself using them for sport. They're aggressive, stick, and slide on like a sock with great rubber for toe and heel hooking.


    Solid Edging Shoe

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times
    • Fit:True to size

    I have had several pairs of Miura VS's and I just got the Boostics:

    These shoes are awesome at technical edging. They are really stiff, and the shoe has a nice camber to them for back stepping. The heels are really tight to get on, at first. They break-in over a couple of days; now, my shoes have an aggressive-comfortable fit. The toe-box is very spacious, allowing for some comfort, with a tight fit. This toe-box is harder to fit in pockets. This is where the shoe suffers. If you're climbing pockety rock, these aren't as good as Miuras. That's is why I give these shoes 4 stars.


    Miura VS-39.5




    First Scarpa, not the last

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size

    Stepping out of an evolv and into a scarpa shoe is life changing. I didn't know climbing shoes could be comfortable. The rubber comes slippery, sand it down with a fine grit paper to bring it up to speed. Two week break-in period.

    Pontas 44.0

    Shaman 43.5

    Boostic 43.5


    Favorite Shoe

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    I climbed in Miuras and Miura VS's for years, but wanted to try something different after the velcro on my VS's kept failing.

    These are my favorite shoes now for hard sport, and are the best edging shoes I've ever used. They have what I consider the perfect blend of a stiff forefoot platform with an aggressive downturn. They may not be the best for severely overhanging routes where soft sensitivity is key, but they give me confidence on tiny edges that I've never had with another shoe.

    The heel has a bit of air in it, but it feels really secure when hooking. My VSs' heels technically fit better, but have actually completely popped off my foot several times on aggressive hooks. These are now my go-to heel hook shoe.

    I'm a size 9/42 street, and I've always worn a 39.5 in Miura/VS's, but had to go up to a 41 in these. I'm a 40 in the Instinct. After a reasonably painful break in, they fit perfectly now.

    What the stiffness like compared to the miura vs.?

    I've had several pairs of the Miura VS, and I just a pair of the Boostics. The Boostics are a lot stiffer than the VS's. Also, I wore 39.5 in the VS, and I got 40 in the Boostic. The heel is really tough to get on, but that broken-in in two days.

    I wear a size 9/42 street shoe and also wear the same in the Scarpa Vapor velcro shoes. Have you tried the Vapors? Are they comparable or do you think I will need to go down to a size to a 41?

    The Vapor velcro are going to be much more comfortable. The Boostic is far more aggressive and asymmetric.

    I wear a 9 street shoe and wear 40.5 in Scarpa. I could probably fit into a 40 in the Vapor but no chance of that in the Feroce, Booster or Boostic.

    I have a wide foot with a moderate sized heel.

    Not sure if that helps you but that is my take.

    Agree, much stiffer than Muira VS. Unfortunately the toe is much more round the Boostics are terrible or stabbing into small pockets.
