Veloce Climbing Shoe

The Veloce is Scarpa's first indoor-specific climbing shoe, and no that doesn't mean it will catch fire if it touches rock. It's an all-new, category-defining option for climbers who focus on training, plastic pulling, and who simply go to the gym more often than they climb rock. There are two defining characteristics that make the Veloce gym-specific. First, the toe box is roomier than most downturned shoes to add comfort when you're chilling in between climbs, so you don't have to take them on and off in the gym. Second, Scarpa's own S-72 rubber grants the sole greater durability than most rubber soles. This ultra-durability is essential for gym climbers, unless you like randing your shoes every season.

Soft shoes

I've used it several times
Size Bought:
5' 7"

Like others have already written, these shoes are soft and comfy. That's the only pro for me. I have only climbed for a couple of years, and gyms only, so perhaps I need the reassurance of a stiffer shoe on smaller foot chips? I am def not a fan of how soft they are. I have only worn the Arpia, Miura, Skwama, and these. I wear street shoe size. I plan to keep these as my "backup" shoes

Ready For Action Right Out Of The Box

I've used it several times
Size Bought:
5' 9"

I?ve been climbing for 46+ years. I?ve owned EBs, RRs, PAs, & my first pair of sticky rubber shoes were Boreal Fires bought from Ray in Joshua Tree in 1984. I bought these specifically for gym climbing along with a pair of La Sportiva Skwama?s. I bought these because I have a wide (EE) forefoot and these shoes are known to have a wide forefoot. I bought my street shoe size. They were snug out of the box but after 10 minutes of climbing, they molded to my feet and are spectacularly comfortable while climbing (I do yank them immediately off after I finish a pitch). I find myself using these more than the Skwamas because there is no break-in period required and the sole is more sensitive (but likely not as good edging). They climb well right out of the box. The rubber seams pretty soft (and sticky!) so I don?t know how they will wear. I try to hit the gym for two 3+ hour sessions twice a week, so if I?m allowed, I?ll write a postscript to this review on how they are wearing and performing. Beware that if you have a narrow foot these shoes may have to be sized differently or may not work for you - there may be too much volume in the shoe for your foot.

Buy them, perfect bouldering shoe

I've put it through the wringer
Size Bought:
5' 10"

I've never written an online review before but I would love for Scarpa to make this shoe until the end of time. I've been climbing for a decade (5.13/v9) and this is the most comfortable shoe i've ever worn and still basically has a good performance as top end shoes like the Solution or Instinct. It's very soft, probably the softest I've worn, but can still edge , especially on overhangs. The heel is near perfect. The strap doesn't break. The rubber is Scarpa house made, but I think performs nearly as well as XS Grip 2 inside and out and lasts significantly longer. Backcountry often has the shoes for sale for $104! A deal that cannot be beat. Your feet wont hurt, performance is top tier. Thats it. Actually, thats not it...the design is very aesthetic as well, they look sleek, simple and well made. Buy them so Scarpa keeps making them and we can all wear them for forever. I wear a 40.5 in Solutions, and a 41.5 in other Scarpas and the Veloce is PERFECT at 41 (M9to 9.5 street shoe). Both regular and LV (or women's whatever they call them) of this shoe are the same in my experience, so choose the color for you. Also, I didn't get anything for this review, but Backcountry does have great customer service and shipping. Maybe send me a special treat Backcountry if this review makes you beaucoups of $$$?
