Scarpa Force X Climbing Shoe

The  Scarpa Force X Climbing Shoe is a best all-round climbing shoe. This shoe is a comfortable well fitted climbing shoe. Scarpa made this shoe for intermediate climbers and beginner in minds.

The proven fit of the performance-oriented design and dual Velcro Strap closure system added in Force X, which make this shoe is one of the best performance climbing shoes.

However, I find this is the best all round shoe when I climb. I climb with this shoe in indoor and rock as well found this shoe is extremely comfortable. But, for the crack climbing and edge climbing, this shoe is not recommended.

Therefore, this is one of the best all round shoe, which allow you to do gym, indoor climbing and rock climbing too.

Probably, this is one of the comfortable shoes I have find out. I’m comfortable with this shoe in gym and rock climbing. But, for crack climbing, I would go for Scarpa Instinct VS or La Sportiva Solution.

We have analyzed all of the shoes in comfort, crack climbing, edge climbing, sensitivity category. We found the shoe is an all-round climbing shoe. Let’s compare its bellow.

In the crack climbing test, the shoe isn’t a great performer. In the small crack, you wouldn’t able to positioning your toe like a pro climbing shoe. However, you will fill an extra comfort. Because the shoe will protect your foot better than a pro shoe.

Edge climbing:

The edge of the shoe is great for a small hill. But, climbing in crack rock this shoe isn’t perfect enough. The toe box is little wider and it feels when you’ll go for hanging on a little crack. Otherwise, the edge will give better comfortable climbing. The Vibram XS rubber edge will help to climb more confidently because this is must sticky rubber.

This shoe is a great comfortable shoe, no arguments. The sensitivity is also exceptionally good. The deluxe sole and padding make this shoe is a most sensitive climbing shoe.
