Scarpa Arpia

Do you have some good climbing skills in your possession but do not still consider yourself a pro yet? Then the Arpia model from Scarpa might be right up your alley. They are designed from a soft micro-suede that feels cozy on our feet and are further embellished with Z-style strap closure for security.

Its last is slightly asymmetric, which is often found in beginners’ shoes, whereas the 1.4mm thick midsole is dense enough to provide you with the support when stumbling upon small edges. This blend ensures that the shoes are comfortable for all-day wear during cragg sessions all while not giving off that compression feeling that is generally found in high-performance alternatives.

The heel structure adapts perfectly to the climbers’ diverse foot shapes making the shoes a great option for converting from flat to the performance-oriented footwear.
