Why We Like THe Scarpa Drago LV Climbing Shoe

Scarpa's original Drago has been such a success for most climbers that Scarpa made a lower-profile version for climbers with narrower feet. Designed for techy boulder problems, overhung sport routes, and difficult gym climbs, the Drago LV Climbing Shoe borrows elements from Scarpa's Furia and Instinct VS for extreme aggression and a minimalist feel that professionals and experts look for in a shoe. 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 us the ability to edge on micro edges and smear with confidence.


  • Lower-volume alternative to one of Scarpa's aggressive climbing shoes
  • Aggressive downturn with highly asymmetric shape

  • Vibram XS Grip 2 sole clings to rock and plastic
  • Synthetic microfiber upper minimizes stretching

  • Runs small, so we recommend sizing up for ideal fit

Possibly my new favorite shoe?

I've put it through the wringer
Size Bought:
5' 8"

First off, I wear a 42.5 in most Sportivas, and I found the same size in the Drago LV to be a little smaller/tighter than similar sized shoes right out of the box. However, this is a very soft, split sole shoe with very soft XS Grip 2 rubber - so I assure you, they WILL stretch. Initial sizing is on the small side, but wear them for a few sessions and they'll quickly stretch a half size or more. If you're afraid of the initial fit, I'd recommend sizing up one half of a European size. Like the regular Drago, they have rubber in all of the right places, but a little less material on the upper, a narrower heel, and a slightly narrower toe box. So if you found yourself swimming in the regular Dragos like I did, give these a shot. Toe and heel hooks just feel so much more locked in when you have a snug fitting shoe that's this sticky. Aesthetically speaking, they're an attractive shoe since they're not colored with some retina-frying fluorescent colors that clash with every other piece of gear. I don't care much about the look of the shoe myself, but if you're the type that does, it may be worth mentioning that I get many compliments on these shoes. I especially appreciated the construction of the upper. Unlike every pair of Evolvs I've tried (and several other manufacturers shoes), there was no annoying seam above my big toe, digging into my knuckle and stripping me of my will to climb. I would definitely recommend these for steep and/or overhung routes/boulders. I would not recommend them for slabby climbs where you need to stand or pivot on many tiny edges - remember, these are very soft shoes.

Love these shoes

This is the fifth climbing shoe I've tried and by far my favorite. They do run small. I wear a 7.5M women's shoe and bought these in 39.5 and they still felt super tight and took a while for me to break them in to my comfort level. Great aggressive shoe though - better than my Booster S and Futuras. Considering buying a backup pair as mine are now out for resole.
