Description

Comfort and performance are no longer sworn enemies.

From three-hour gym sessions to your first 5.11 lead, strap on the Scarpa Men's Force X Climbing Shoe for reliable performance that won't crush your piggies into a pulp. The innovative V-tension system allows for a more comfortable extended toe position that still supplies enough power that you can confidently stand on tiny edges and glassy smears. Add in the sticky Vibram XS Edge rubber and the convenient dual power-strap closure, and all you have left to do is get stoked and crush.

  • Unlined suede uppers with a partial Vellutina lining provide a snug fit out of the box that won't stretch over time
  • Dual power strap closure is fast, secure, and convenient
  • Scarpa's V-tension system reduces pressure and compression in the toe-box for a more extended and comfortable toe position while providing maximum power
  • Vibram XS Edge rubber confidently sticks to the smallest of features
  • Moderate asymmetrical curvature makes the Force X an ideal all-day shoe, bridging the gap between performance and comfort
  • Padded tongue increases comfort

Good comfy gym shoe.

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size

Highly recommended for anyone looking for a shoe that is comfy to wear for multiple hours at the gym. They are a little down-turned, but not enough to label them as an aggressive shoe. Good for beginner climbers or anyone looking for a good shoe to train in the gym in.

Comfortable mid range performance shoe

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

I bought a pair of the Force X's sized large enough to wear all day to be my all day long trad shoe. They perform well (although not as aggressively as my Katanas) are comfortable, well built, and seem like they'll hold up. They're exactly what I was looking for.

This is a longer term review now that I've had many months in this shoe. This has actually become my go to shoe. It is very precise, carries a good balance between sensitivity and stiffness and is comfortable enough to wear all day. I've actually started wearing these in situations where I would have reached for my Katana's. I'm highly surprised by how much I love them.

Great shoe but insecure rubber

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I really wanted to like this shoe: I love the Scarpa fit and this shoe is super comfy for all day multi-pitch trad. It also performed well on sport routes including 5.12 sends. However, I kept finding that I would slip in the most unlikely places on friction holds (stems, slabs) that I would never have doubted. At first I thought it must be in my head, but finally compared by climbing the same route with other shoes. Only ForceX tended to slip on some footholds where my other shoes were absolutely solid. I admit I'm a bit confused by this: has no one else had problems with slippery rubber on Scarpas? Maybe I got my pair from a bad batch???

What are your other shoes? Scarpa uses Vibram rubber which is used by a lot of other brands including La Sportiva.

currently 5.10 Anasazi; Evolv Pontas; Evolv Demorto. Before this set I had Scarpas and La Sportiva Kendos before that. Never had an issue with rubber, Vibram or otherwise, before.

Very comfortable

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These shoes are a lot stiffer than my old 5tens but also a lot more confortable, what else to ask for?

Very comfortable and good for climbing

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

What they call the v-tension system I call comfortable toes that are still precise and powerful. I can wear these for hours and have lately on some multipitches.
They are decent performance not super tweaked in the toes for hanging on overhangs, just great for everything.
