Why We Like The Force V Climbing Shoe

Slip into Scarpa's Force V Climbing Shoe when you start tackling overhung climbs whether you're bouldering or sport climbing. An ideal introduction to the steeps, this flat climbing kicker has a comfortable asymmetry so you don't feel pain while you learn how to fight gravity. Scarpa left the smooth, soft, stretchy suede leather upper unlined for a conforming fit. Underfoot, the Force V features a sensitive Flexan midsole and Vibram's XS Edge rubber at the sole for optimized traction and long-lasting durability.

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

I use this as a warmup shoe in the gym, but it is really versatile outdoors. I got a 42.5, a somewhat comfy fit, have used them outdoors for granite single pitch and multi. Comfy, durable leather, nice padding and split tongue, jams most crack sizes well. No pressure I had them resoled with XS Grip for more smearing ability. They work fine for sport, but do not edge closely, or pull or hook as well as a slipper or downturned shoe. Sensitivity is not great, but the Force is solid on longer crack and face routes. Scarpa rock shoes are def. snug for their Euro sizing. I'm about size 9.5 US street shoe, or 42.5, but Scarpa's 42.5 feels a full size smaller. This is similar to Five-Ten sizing, yes? They are both about a full Euro size smaller than La Sportiva rock shoes.
