SCARPA Rock Shoes Earn Rock and Ice "Best in Gear"

Highlighting SCARPA’s innovative new rock shoe program, Rock and Ice Magazine awarded the Spectro – the high-performance edging shoe from the new line – a "Best in Gear" award in its 2007 Gear Guide. In addition, SCARPA’s Vision V was awarded a "Reader’s Choice" Award from Blue Ridge Outdoors in the magazine’s 2007 Gear Guide in February.

“The Spectro fits likes a glove,” Rock and Ice wrote. “The new iteration, created by the renowned rock shoe designer Heinz Mariacher, feels like a hand wrapping and squeezing your foot from underneath. This edging shoe is agile and very high performance. Touch the shoe to any steep wall and the Spectro will stick, pull and smear.”

The Spectro is one of six new rock shoes designed by Mariacher, who joined SCARPA last year and is now overseeing its rock- and approach-shoe program.

In bestowing a Reader’s Choice award on the Vision V, Blue Ridge Outdoors wrote: “For boulderers and sport climbers seeking a high-performance and highly sensitive sole mate, the Vision V is your most comfortable answer.”
