The horizontal world is overrated.
You dream of a life lived solely in the vertical world where work is a couple pitches below, projects are a couple pitches above, and even the grocery store is a traverse away. If you're going to spend the rest of your life up there, you're going to need a comfy pair of shoes with a harmonious blend of comfort and performance. Despite its slight asymmetry and flat profile, the Scarpa Women's Force V Climbing Shoe is surprisingly performance-driven for how comfy it feels. Sure it isn't going to succeed on the steep overhangs, but it can handle slab, crack, and vertical edging like a champ. The Vibram XS Edge rubber sole assures solid traction for seasons, and the V-Tension Active Randing maintains a solid profile throughout. How's that for harmonious?

Perfect first shoe!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
After buying 5 shoes to test out, I decided to keep these. I’m no longer a total beginner, but these shoes still suit my needs. I’ve taken them indoor and outdoor climbing, and they’re still going strong. Perfect shoe! And sizing is perfect :)

I Love my Scarpa Force V Climbing Shoes! They have a super soft Achilles padding & arch support! After trying on hundreds of climbing shoes ... these are my favorite by far! We spend an average of 4-6 hrs at the indoor climbing gym on any given day, & found that they break in period to be less painful then normal climbing shoes. I highly recommend this shoe for beginners to novice alike!
