User Review: Scarpa Feroce
Materials: Vibram XS
Use: boulder, sport, crack
Break-in Period: 3 weeks
Price Paid: 220 aus$
I got these shoes after using the Sportiva Katanas and the first thing I noticed was how easy it was to pull with them. Then the next thing was the funny lump pushing up from underneath my big toe. At first it feels really horrible, but now it feels weird not to have it there.
The shoe has got tonnes of really sticky rubber on it so there's no complaining. The heel has got a rubber hooking rail and it's really different to a normal heel because it can slip off unexpectedly which is a shame. I mainly boulder with this shoe, but it is also legendary on sport routes. The Feroce apparently excels on crack climbing, however I've not tried it yet. It also works well on slabs and a bit better on vertical.
The Scarpa Feroce is a super good all-rounder, works best steep climbing using edges and pockets,and the rubber is mad.
