Extra soft bouldering shoes for top performance
The Drago from Scarpa are incredibly soft high-end climbing shoes, designed for the most difficult bouldering problems and short, yet tough, sport climbing routes. These shoes are ideal for ambitious boulderers and can also be used as competition shoes. Wherever friction and sensitivity are required, that's where the Drago are at their best. They are most suitable for bouldering indoors, but also work great out on the crag due to their excellent sensitivity.
In addition, the shoes feature strong asymmetry and an equally strong downturn with a high toe box and a Flexan insert at the big toe. As a result, they offer excellent power transfer and a very precise tip - ideal for steep walls with small footholds. The midfoot is lightly supported by the PCB-Tension system without compromising on flexibility. Moreover, a very thin heel made from 2mm thick Vibram XS Grip 2 rubber and SRT rubber in the toe area provides superior hooking properties. The extended toe wrap facilitates toe hooks in particular. Plus, the sole construction is very soft and extremely high-traction, making it ideal for supporting your weight with just friction.
These shoes are designed for feet with a medium volume and are best suited for people with an Egyptian foot shape, i.e. for people whose second toe is shorter than their big toe. Due to their aggressive design, they fit very tightly and are therefore not suitable for multi-pitch or long sport climbing.
The Drago are ultra-soft, highly specialised shoes designed primarily for technically demanding bouldering. Due to their especially soft construction, they are particularly suitable for those in need of high friction and sensitivity. For ambitious boulderers and competitive athletes, these specialist shoes are an absolute must-have.
