Why We Like The Drago Climbing Shoe

Designed to send techy boulder problems, overhung sport routes, and difficult gym climbs, the Scarpa Drago Climbing Shoe makes a nice addition to any climber's quiver of shoes. Borrowing elements from Scarpa's Furia and Instict VS climbing shoes, the Drago has a minimalist design to reduce fiddle time at the crag and a powerful heel for added security on those high heel hooks. The aggressive downturned profile and asymmetric shape make this shoe ideal for the most difficult climbs, while the thin and flexible Vibram XS Grip 2 sole gives you the ability to edge on micro edges and smear with confidence.


  • Aggressive all-rounder for gyms, boulders, and overhung sport routes
  • Aggressive downturn with highly asymmetric shape
  • Thin and flexible sole provides a sensitive feel
  • Vibram XS Grip 2 sole clings to rock and plastic
  • Synthetic microfiber upper minimizes stretching
  • Single hook-and-loop strap delivers a quick and dialed fit
  • Scarpa builds reliable footwear for almost any vertical pursuit
  • Item runs small, so we recommend sizing up for best fit

The Gold Standard For Bouldering

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Size Bought:
5' 11"

I have trouble getting into Scarpa shoes; but after hearing raves from my Gym Besties, I wanted to try the Dragos. Trouble is, I wear 45.5 or 46 in La Sportivas and 13 in Evolves; and Dragos only go up to 45. Ordered a pair in 45 and told myself "If I can get into these shoes, I am going to keep them and hope they stretch." Well, the first two times wearing it WAS pretty painful; but they DO stretch somewhat so eventually they fit like a glove.Yikes! Dragos are SOFT!! Take Skwanas and divide by 2. I gotta tell you two things: First, I am a really poor, incompetent Boulderer, so I need more structure from my shoes than more experienced Boulderers. Second, if YOU really like Bouldering, especially on features and toe & heel hooking; you're going to go bananas over the Dragos! They STICK, STICK, STICK; and the wild downturn and assymmetry really help you. While you CAN catch edges with your big toe, this is not an edging shoe IMO.

Narrow toe box

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Size Bought:
5' 11"

Really wish it were possible to write a review without giving stars; I tried these out, and while they felt snug and super tactile, the toe box was slightly too narrow for my feet. My feet aren?t overly wide, but its enough that I have to take into account when sizing shoes like this, and unfortunately these ones in particular were too narrow. This caused some pinching on the sides, and I think because my feet didn?t make it all the way into the toe box properly, my heel wasn?t seated properly either. Because pretty much the entire toe is wrapped in rubber, it?s not likely to stretch laterally. I will say they felt soft, light, and there was a lot of feel in the tip of the toe to negotiate small holds. The asymmetrical design felt a little weird the way it twisted your foot, but I can kinda see how it works with the rand. I want to make it clear that this doesn?t make this shoe bad, per se, just something for prospective buyers to take into account. Which is also why I wish I didn?t have to rate it with stars; the shoe just wasn?t meant for me, but I?m sure it?s great for other people. For reference, I have both the VS and VSR, and they fit me perfectly, just wanted something a little less bulky for overhanging boulders. I?d really like to try the Chimera, even though it?s more for sport climbing, because I think laces would help alleviate some of that squeeze with zonal tightening.
