Guides love them, Scarpa loves them, the comfortable and supportive Force X. Padding in the heel cup and airmesh tongue give these the feel of an approach-shoe, but V-Tension randing keeps the sensitivity and performance high. It is preferred for alpine climbing and long routes on lower-angle terrain. The dual power straps let you ramp up the climbing for steeper, crux pitches, and the all-natural suede upper forms to keep your feet smiling on a Grade V mission. Our favorite “comfort” shoe, with a few tricks up its sleeve. Try ‘em on and feel the goodness.
