Scarpa Maestro Mid Eco Climbing Shoe - Women's
When comfier climbing shoes don't give the performance you need on the crux pitch, and high-performing climbing shoes feel too uncomfortable to wear all day, the Scarpa Women's Maestro Mid Eco Climbing Shoe feels just right. It sports an ever-so-subtle downturn to amplify the performance you need for the crux, and moderate asymmetry creates a comfier fit compared to most aggressive, downturned shoes. The IPC-Tension rand surrounds the upper to maintain the shoe's subtle downturn and moderate asymmetry for life, and Scarpa heightened the eco-friendly leather upper for better coverage in cracks. Vibram's XS Edge rubber gives this sole a stiff feel for the support needed on long multi-pitches.

And then we've got earnest of a stream that goes under here it allows us to kind of have a paradigm shift that trad shooters supposed to be really stiff here we've got a shoe that is very. Very supportive but also kind of sensitives the pull and the charge and. The dynamism that's in this shoe is kind of more explosive than here this gives a kind of more gentle extended release.

Shoe pretty interesting downturn shoe it's not downturn throughout the whole shoe it's just downturn throughout the toe box that allows the heel to work by itself and not affect the heel and the fit of the heel also we're still using the proven arch flex a design that just. Worked really well for us in the past shoes with different tensioning specific to this shoe this is not a specifically outdoor shoe but it's its driven and. Built for outdoor climbing it does climb very well indoors as well but. You're gonna see its true potential outside on all different terrain slab. Overhanging pockets crimps and micro. Diamond for sure a lot of power in the shoe also introduced a compression tongue so the tongue is designed with elastic to squeeze the top of your foot down this shoe actually works really well as a slipper unlaced but also you're getting that added control and fit and feel with that lace i really wanted to give matt rock a chance to put. Ourselves out there and show this industry what we can produce and then. Also within the shoe i really wanted to make a complete shoe i really felt like you know with climbing shoes and how there had been made for the last 20 years we really get a good fit in the toe box area but the struggling area has always been the heel so my goal was to make a complete shoe from heel to toe and then also stylizing it really making. It really loud really different than anything else that's been out there a lot of design cues from race cars some people have come in and say wow that looks like a Jordan a michael Jordan shoe and that's where I've got a lot of the influence from you know I've always respected michael Jordan shoes waited in. Line to get the shoes and you know i put a little bit of that into rock climbing you know it does have an aggressive look and an aggressive profile to it but it's an extremely comfortable shoe and it doesn't come at. The expense of performance so yeah we. Are continuing to make pretty comfortable shoes but that still perform the way you need them perform a lot has to do with the lining this is a line high-end shoe a lot of the higher-end shoes are not lined they're just let you know put your foot in it let it conform a lot of the idea behind this shoe is to have the fit be consistent. From when it comes out of the box to a month or two down the line and. Especially when you're actually using the shoe to maintain the power and put everything where it needs to be we did use 4.1 millimeters sole rubber here rx5. Formula our competitors don't necessarily use that thick of rubber but i think it adapts to the style of each climber so if you are a bit of a beginner climber and you're getting into experiencing the high performance end of the shoe line you're not gonna get screwed by you know having the shoe blowout on you that fast or having a rubber wear out on you within reason i mean it is a it is a tool that we're using, and they do wear down like a kitchen knife we knew exactly what we wanted, and we work a compromise, so we. Were just right after it's pretty awesome we're really proud of it's like it generated a lot of buzzes a lot of. People that would normally never step foot in a and a mad rock booth came down to check the shoe out this is a performer this i think is gonna do really well for us if you are gonna be seeing a lot of cool things coming from this company for sure and with a whole. New styling and a whole new attitude, and we're hoping to turn some heads.
