Scarpa Force X
The SCARPA Force X is a go-to comfort climbing shoe, suitable for beginner to intermediate climbers or for more advanced climbers who want a comfortable shoe during long sessions.
The Force X features a moderate, non-aggressive asymmetrical curvature that bridges the gap between performance and comfort, making this an ideal all-day shoe. A padded mesh tongue increases comfort, while the dual power-strap closure allows you to quickly slip these shoes on and off between climbs. The Force X also features a padded heel cup to keep the shoe snug and reduce slippage and pain while heel hooking.
The Force X uses the V-Tension active randing system, which allows for a more extended toe position that reduces pressure and compression across the toes but still supplies enough power for small edges.
The Force X’s sole is Vibram XS Edge 4mm: a rubber compound designed to provide maximum edging support. This sole delivers beautiful, pure grip with added firmness for the most challenging edging moves. Distortion-resistant, the sole keeps its shape even after hours of use and maintains a consistent feel across hot and cold temperatures.
If you want a versatile shoe that can keep up with you as your skill and strength develops and that you can take everywhere, then the Force X is a serious contender.
