Description

For the steep stuff.

Scarpa gave the Rockette Women's Climbing Shoe a down-turned toe and aggressive profile to give its wearers the performance needed to handle the toughest sport climbs and boulder problems out there. Dual hook-and-loop closures let you get in and out fast, so you can get on your project as soon as the stoke hits you. Scarpa used a combination of Suede and Lorica to let these those form to your feet as you wear them. Not to mention the Vibram XS Grip soles that stick to everything like glue.

Best project shoes ever

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

I am used to the pain of breaking in shoes. I've been climbing since 2009 and have since tried many other shoes. The rockettes were a gift hence I played no hand in sizing them. I am a 7.5-8 street shoes, wear 6.5 Anasazi Lvs (but also own a 7 comfort/warm up shoes), 35.5 La Sportiva Cobras, 36 W Miura VS, and wear the rockettes at a 37 eu/ 6 US. They were amazingly tight and had to be broken in for a while but after enduring the pain of breaking them in (many corns and callouses later!) they worked amazingly well. I won 3 comps using these and send 5.12 (gym) projects with these babies easy. They are also my designated bouldering shoes. They are amazing for overhangs and the secure heel cup design is unlike any other shoe I've tried. The heel of the rockettes are amazing. They suck the ball of my heel and adhere to it like a glove giving me the most secure heel fit ever. These shoes are amazingly well designed and I am sad that Scarpa is no longer making them. The rockettes were designed by the same guy that designed the La Sportiva Testarrosas, Heinz Merriacher and you can see his hallmarks with the rockettes as with the testarrosas. Great heel fit, amazing toe box design and edging power. The rubber also lasts long. I've had mine for almost 3 years now and use them regularly (2-3 times a week) bouldering and almost as regularly for projects and hard climbs (2-3 times on a regular session) about 4 times a week and it still looks pretty new. I will probably have years of use out of it. Great design, amazing precision and the best heel fit of any climbing shoes out there. I absolutely love them!

Responded on

When your ready for a new pair check out the Scarpa Boostic. Very similar fit and in my opinion better performance.

patience pays

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Like many other reviewers, I ordered a pair of Rockettes online and wound up with shoes that were a bit smaller than I had anticipated. I normally like my shoes small though so I decided to stick them out and I'm happy that I did.

Because of a combination of the small size and the dramatic shape of these shoes I had a few painful days in these shoes but ultimately, I really like them. They do stretch out over time and part of it is just your feet growing used to flexing in the way that the shoe encourages.

Once you get used to them you can climb on nubbins all day long.

Killer shoes but killer break in period

My boyfriend got this for me as a present about a year ago and it took me about 8 months to break in. I wear a size 7.5-8 shoes and wear 6.5 on the Anasazi lvs. I got the rockettes at a size 6 U.S. women's or a 37 euro and the pain was unbelievable. I wore the shoes about once a week bouldering for the past year and it was only about two months ago that it truly felt broken in. Now I use it to send my projects and they work like a charm. They stick to the tiniest of holds and feel amazingly secure on overhangs. These shoes are amazing! Yeah it was a super painful break in but I don't regret getting them 1 1/2 sizes small. They've molded to my feet now and while still a bit uncomfortable they do the job very well. So if you're looking for a serious bouldering or project shoe, look no further! Just take in the pain and you'll be fine. Afterall, no pain no gain!

Crazy performance by Scarpa

-FIRST OFF-
Let me say that getting the proper size is up to YOU. Every company uses different foot shapes to mold their shoes, and to make it even more difficult, MOST models of shoes within brands will fit completely different. Climbing shoes are super specific to the shape of your feet, so you just have to keep trying them on until you find the right one
Thankfully, Backcountry.com has an amazing return policy and will be happy to provide easy and FREE exchanges until we get you in the proper size(you can even take them to the gym and try them out for a day).
All that aside, bought these for my girlfriend and they are fantastically built shoes. These will NOT stretch very much. There is a lot of rubber covering your toes, will will give you great friction on toe hooks, but will prevent the toe box from stretching too much. The rand of the shoe is also stiff and aggressive to give you really precise power in overhanging situations.
These will be your best friend if they fit your foot.

wrong sizing

I had several different Scarpas before and I liked all of them a lot. So I ordered Rockette 34, 34.5, 35 (my previous shoes were 34.5, my street size is 36, I have narrow foot)

Unfortunately I couldn't even put Rockette (35 size) on my foot - they are that small! I compared them with La Sportiva Miura VS, size 35 too - Rockette are about 2cm less.

I ended with another shoes, hoping that next time I get more luck with sizing.

I rated these shoues basing on visual examination. (I also know that men's version of these shoes - Scarpa Booster works great).

Didn't work for me...

Let me start by saying I did return these (in 2 sizes).

I wear a 7.5 street size. My La Sportiva Muiras are a size 37. I ordered both a 37, and a 37.5 in the scarpa rockette. I have a wider foot at the toes, nothing ridiculous.

I mostly boulder, often indoors at anywhere from a V2-V7 in plastic land. I prefer a more down turned shoe for overhang problems. I understand the process of wearing in a tight uncomfortable shoe but these were just not right for my foot.

The construction of the shoe looks great, extremely downturned and aggressive - I was excited. However after squeezing them on my feet and wearing them around (both sizes) I still couldn't walk (read - could not put any pressure on my feet, walking was a laughable sight). The 37 would be the right size (same as my muiras), as the heel fit tight, but I think my foot is just too voluminous for this shoe. Perhaps a narrower foot may have a better chance.

I am jealous of those who can wear this shoe - I advise that you try these on if you can find a retailer.

Rocket Power

The Scarpa Rockette's are a serious shoe, with a super down turned toe, made and best used for steep boulder problems, with little precise footing. I sized down a considerable amount for these, I wear a 42 in street shoes and bought a 40 in the Rockettes. The rand was super tight at first but stretched nicely to fit the heal. The toe box is perfect though, even with my toes curled it feels like it was made for my foot, the low volume and narrowness of the shoe is ideal for a ladies foot.
