Simplify the footwork on your next project by wearing the Scarpa Rockette Women's Climbing Shoes.

Scarpa created the Rockette Women's Climbing Shoes to keep up with ladies who pull down on the hardest sport climbs and boulder problems. Their down-turned toes and ultra-sticky Vibram XS Grip rubber makes the worst footholds feel huge. Scarpa's X-tension system drives your foot forward to increase precision and feel while reducing slop in the ankle when you need to heel hook the arête on your boulder problem. The Rockette Climbing Shoes' hook-and-loop closures allow quick entry into the form-fitting, unlined suede uppers.

Here's what others have to say...

amazing but theres a pocket

great for the steeps. edging is fanatastic even the smallest holds feel like a ledge but the only down fall is the space in my heel. I sized them 1 size smaller than my shoe size and they feel great (painful but great.).

A good pain?

I am still "breaking" my Rockette's in... they are super aggressive and I feel as though they have made me a more confident climber. They stick to anything (although I haven't tried them on slabs and probably wouldn't recommend them for slabs). I normally wear an 8 and originally bought these a full size smaller and couldn't even sit down with the shoe on my feet... so I went up to the 7 1/3 size and they are still painful, but I can wear them and hope after a few more outings they mold to my feet better. I'm going to try and soak them in hot water then slap em on my feet...

a painful joy

As it is said, yes, this is not a comfortable climbing shoes. I went to a local sports shop and tried other Scarpa climbing shoes before I put the order here. But I had a second thought and bought the shoes half size smaller than I was going to. How I regret that decision! I tried them 3 times at gym. It is a killer climbing shoes and it sticks on the wall very well, but my toes hurt! Anyway, my suggestion is to try it at your local sports shop to decide the size before you buy it online and do not have second thought!

I did the exact same thing and i have a suggestion for you that worked for me...get shoe strechers. i leave them in when im not climbing and now its only takes about 1-2 warm up climbs before they feel solid. My toes hurt so bad before i was wearing my old shoes but now its fantastic! get shoe strechers at like walmart for $3. its worth it.

the cruel shoes...

Okay, so I normally wear size 38 climbing shoes, I got these in a 40 and they were still super tight - toes curled, the whole nine yards. But they edge on a dime and that's worth a lot! I haven't had them long, maybe I've done 10 pitches in them and they are already feeling more comfortable. I"m told you can soak the shoe in super hot water and then slap em on your feet and they will stretch out faster, so I might still try that. But so far, I feel much more confident on tiny edges.

Update on my previous review

I stretched the shoes before my second use by sticking hammer handles in them; I did not stretch them before the third use, and the pain was back. In retrospect I would size down a half size AT MOST.

Worth it - worth the money, and worth the pain!

I wanted a performance climbing shoe, and a friend convinced me to go for the Scarpas. After consulting with him, I sized down - I wear a size 8 and I bought the 7 1/3 (based on the euro/American size chart). When I first tried them on I was afraid I had made a terrible mistake. I could hardly walk in them. The first time I climbed in them I complained. A lot. Yet at the same time I cruised a 5.12. I decided they were keepers - they really did perform well for me. The second time I wore them climbing the pain factor was much less, so they really do break in. They are beautifully made, really quality shoes and I'm so glad I got them. They do crunch your toes, though!

Totally Awesome Shoes!

These shoes are absolutely amazing. I've had difficulty finding shoes that fit well in these past, and these are just perfect. I wear a size 6 to 6 1/2 street shoe and ordered these in a 35.5. They were extremely tight but have started to mold to my feet. The ankle/heel doesn't sit too high and the arch fits perfectly. They haven't been on real rock yet, but in the gym, my heel hooks and edging have been phenomenal! These are wonderful shoes!!!!

I wear a women's 6 in Galileos, what size in these? I have a wide foot, small thick toes, a high instep/arch and a low outside ankle bone... la sportiva men's usually rape my heel, but the five tens fit perfect. Also, are these purple or blue? it says lavender, but the picture looks blue...

I have katanas in a 36.5 does anyone know...

I have katanas in a 36.5 does anyone know approximately what size I should get in these...?

Responded on

I find that Katanas have a fiar bit of stretch 1 1/2 to 2 sizes they are also a flatter lasted shoe. The rockette is definately more agreesive and wont strecth as much 1/2 to 1 size at the most.

Responded on

hey emily I wear katanas in size 35 (41/2) and I just got the rockettes in a size 351/2 (5) my street sho wis size 7- I expected some pain but this is insane. I downsized alot for my katanas, with great results as they stretched but I recommend down sizing one size for the rockettes. I feel like im back in the 1500's in Asia with foot binding.

Great toes, poor heels

I have low-volume instep, narrow heels, low-ankles, wide forefoot, stubbier toes; both feet are about the same. These fit me perfect from arch to toes, but bad at the heels. The heel rand is made for those with a higher outside ankle bone; for me, the rand squeezes under my ankle bone, and becomes unbearably painful if I rotate my foot inwards (ie. toes pointing in). Also, my heel doesn't even touch the end of the heel cup. Since I like the rest of the shoes much, I plan to cut off the upper part of the heel rand, like what I did with my other pair of shoes (Red Chili Spirit VCR Impact Zone). That should make the heels less painful, without degrading the performance much.

Overall: I particularly like the downward design, and the toe rubber patch. Though haven't field-tested these yet, I expect to be able to toe-hook and point much better than the Red Chili. Though the Chili has served me well up to V3's, they're not aggressive enough to help me send steeper and harder problems. I'll see how these go.

my feet are super skinny with super long toes. what shoes would you recommend? would these work for me?

Responded on

la sportiva mythos. size down 1/2 to one full size. they stretch a lot. you can wear them for hours walking around your gym. very comfortable. not too good for edging but big props on smearing. since they have laces your can rachet them down to fit your slender feet. and because they dont point the hell out of your toes it should be more comfortable.

These shoes are sweet! I can stand on pretty much anything...the only problem is my unruly toes get a bit angry if I wear these for more than 15 minutes, but they are stretching. Its also a little harder to walk around with then being so downturned.
But for actual CLIMBING, they rock. Pun intended.

What's the sizing like? (compared to La Sportiva)

Responded on

They are smaller than La Sportiva. I use La Sportiva's Nago size 38.5 and ordered the Rockette's in size 38.5 (I wear a 8.5/9 in street shoes). And I literally lose circulation to my feet while wearing the Scarpas. They're a great shoe, but I can't stay in them for over 5 minutes (maybe even less) without losing feeling in my entire foot.

I remember reading a review before I bought them that said it's a V0 just trying to get into the shoe. I hoped that wasn't going to be true. It is.

These shoes are killer, but maybe too killer for my feet.

standing on a dime

I sized down perhaps too much, as they've stretched and are still very tight, but even on plastic walls (inside) I can stand on a dime edge and move to the next hold, where in any other shoe I'd smear and use momentum. Toe jamming is a dream, the tiniest of holds seem like jugs, and toe/heel hooking is very effective in the rockette. I would recommend them to any girl climbing that wants to push the limits of technical climbing to a whole new level.

Scarpa Rockettes

these are sure aggressive shoes, It really helps your foot into a point! reminds me back in the day when i would wear ballet point shoes. It really does help all the strength go to your bog toe. They really suck to walk around on flat though! but they performed really well when i demoed them out bouldering. you can really use that big toe to smear on little tiny nothings. They are leather so they will stretch out around a full size. The heal cup is not too deep. Las Sportivas heal cups are always too deep for me. These have lower volume heal cup to fit a women's smaller heal.
