Thin, technical cracks, hard-to-place protection, and heady runouts—the Scarpa Techno Climbing Shoe loves every minute of it. This high-performance trad machine features a comfortable, streamlined design and a low-profile toe that edges like a dream and jams like raspberry in your finger-crack project. The Techno’s innovative Heel Lock System lacing secures the shoe without the unbearable toe cramping, and the Vibram XS Grip sole sticks to Yosemite granite and Indian Creek sandstone alike.

Not for me

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

They are clearly a popular shoe and for the price they really aren't that bad but my feet just couldn't bear them. I am a street size 7 and tried the 38 & 39 but neither one of them worked for me. My feet are maybe a little narrower and these seemed a bit wide.

Love the shoe!

Great beginner shoe! I sized down 1 full size which were painful and first but now I perfect fit. The rubber is nice and sticky and they fit a regular width foot. I use them mostly for sport climbing and haven't had any complaints yet!

They will get you to the top

These are great shoes. Really comfortable for how much technical support they offer. I love the lacing as you get a better fit. They are spot on for sizing, my foot is pretty average width for a lady.

Great comfort shoe

    I purchased this shoe in the same size as I purchase some higher performance Scarpa climbing shoes (Instinct Lace, Vapor V's) as a starting point to find a comfortable all day shoe for long routes in the German/Austrian Alps and Dolomites. Out of the box these things fit like a glove. So far I have been able to use them well in cracks and on small foot placements up long slabby routes, climbing all day comfortably. Not a shoe I would use for steep single pitch routes, but if you're trying to do a 1,000 feet in a day this shoe does it well.

    Great All Day Shoe!

    I am loving my new Scarpa Technos. I climb three times a week in the gym and take at least one trip outdoors per month, so they are getting plenty of use! They do great on pretty much everything, from crack and granite slab in the Wichitas to Reimers and bouldering at Rogers park.

    Sharp edges, great adjustable lacing, secure heel cup and good sticky rubber. Not a super technical shoe, but you can tell that just by looking. Great all round all day shoe.

    Fit: True to size, good for wide feet, especially if you get the men's shoe (if you are gal with wide feet!)

    Love them!

    Had these for about 6 months and have used them for a few alpine climbs, a bit of cragging, and a lot of sport climbs. They're super comfortable and are great on cracks compared to my old sport climbing slippers. I wear a size 10 street shoe, and the size 42 Techno's fit me great (minus a painful period of ~6 hours of climbing stretching them out at first). Durability seems to be fairly good so far.

    Built to last

      I wear a 11.5-12 regular street shoe, this being my first pair of climbing shoes I decided to get a 12. The fit is about as perfect as can be. The laces allow for different shaped and witdh'd feet, toes are tight and the heel lock can easily be manipulated. being a flatter sole trad (traditional) shoe, it's reccomended to get close to your street shoe size rather than downsizing. Hope this helps

      Scarpa Techno shoes

        Lace up is the way to go for us with wide EEE feet can be quite comfortable when the RIGHT size is chosen, Scarps Run Way small,order 1.5 sizes above you street shoe lace up to fit correctly, soak them in mineral oil to soften, stuff an old Tee inside to soak up excess oil, enjoy!

        Great All Day Shoe

          Technical enough for most things that you'll run into while being very comfortable once broken in, these are solid performers that thrive outdoors. They perform pretty well on edges, and very well in cracks. They work fine in the gym as well for those of you who don't like being that climbing partner that holds up your group by fiddling with your shoes every pitch due to comfort issues.
          Rubber is not super sticky but still very good, and really transmits the feeling of the contour of the rock to your feet very well, so you know exactly what you're doing with your feet.
          Original size is relatively true to a little big. Mine stretched about a quarter to half size, so take that into account and size accordingly.
          For all day and multipitch sport and trad sessions, these are my go to shoe.

          True Trad

            Very durable shoes. Sticky rubber. Relatively comfortable. Edge OK. They haven't stretched much in the past year. I had a friend break one of the nylon webs which lock your heel down but mine are still going strong. Great trad shoe for sure.

            I really want to love them

              I love these shoes. They're comfy, have great articulation with the fit with the laces and heel strap able to adjust to your foot in almost any orientation, and have great rubber. However, the fit doesn't work for me. They're too narrow in the toes. My foot isn't really wide, but they're too wide for these shoes. Also, the shape of the toe towards the outside means that anything small you want to catch requires you to point your toe straight at the wall. My La Sportiva Venoms allow for a much more relaxed stance when edging. These are great trad shoes (if they don't kill your feet), but not great for sport. You'll have to go down a couple of sizes when buying Scarpa, but don't go down too much because these shoes don't stretch as much as you would hope.

              Yep, I had the same problem, these scarpas seem much narrower than all the rest of the scarpas I own, which include the old thunders, forces, and feroces. They kill my feet and I can't even break them in, i have to take them off after every pitch even though they aren't sized aggressively, which is a pain on multipitch

              great shoes.

                had mine now for about a year. still doing great. great for catching an edge and really hugging the wall. i've climbed with em on quartz, sandstone, limestone, etc and they've held up great. i dig em, but not super aggressive.

                Just curious... are these true to size? ...

                Just curious... are these true to size? Do they fit like the size of a casual shoe or no?

                The short answer is no. I am an avid boulder-er and sport climber, I would never purchase a pair of climbing shoes without trying them on. My first shoes was the La Sportiva Nago; In casual shoe I wear a 9-9.5, however in the Nago I was a 7. My next pair of shoes was the La Sportiva Muira XS which I wore a 7.5. Overall I would recommend going to a local retail store and trying some on. Then coming home and making the purchase off of backcountry taking advantage of the discounts. Simply purchasing them off of the internet will most likely lead to a return.
