Arpia Climbing Shoe
The Arpia has an snug fit similar to slippers, with the exception of the single z-strap closure for quick-and-easy adjustments. Scarpa made it with a microsuede upper that stretches to conform to your foot shape, and there's a soft-touch backing so your foot can easily slip in. Vibram's XS Grip 2 gives this shoe's sole some of the best traction in the climbing community.

- Q & A
Bloody nice shoes - tight as hell
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Definitely go a size UP from your regular shoe size. Even kardi B would dig these kicks. Sexy Italian rubber.
I wear 10 in ASICS kayano, 10.5 in Garmont , the scarpa 43.5 10.1/3 where tight as hell and oncomfotable as hell. Much nicer rubber and build quality than the black diamonds I have, obviously more care in the design and build, and rubber was sticker. The thin arch and heal allows for good flex and movement. Definitely choose these over the black diamonds you have been looking at - they are just a big brand pumping out big brand marketing and no longer the best products., sadly a clear difference between brands and build locations. The lacing system is super simple and the heal fits nice. These are a nice step up from a entry level shoe and will blow your mind if you have just been running the stinked up horrid hire shoes from the gym. Well worth the money. Thanks. If you can try them on, or order a few pairs as fit is tight. Sadly returns is a costly pain in the backside, would not even consider it if your lived internationally. Cost $69 CAD in import duty so don’t even consider shipping international unless your a legit millionaire not a wantabee with a maxed out card. These kicks - Made in Italy with care, your definitely going to pull chicks when you pull these bad boys on. Nb. my black diamonds stink like a porta potty in Alberta, like, way way worse than my other scarpa and 5.10, so don’t go near them unless you need to keep bears/raccoons out of your car.
