Scarpa Chimera Climbing Shoe

The Scarpa Chimera is a uniquely designed climbing shoe designed to be the most precise bouldering shoe on the market. Taking its name from the hybrid creature of Greek mythology, the Scarpa Chimera features Vibram XS Grip 2 for maximum grip, an elongated toe patch for toe hooking across the entire length of the shoe, and a vacuum lacing system for a totally secure fit. But its really interesting characteristic, unusually, is the design of its inner panel.

On the shoe’s inner, a large, seamless, morphic big-toe panel has been placed. This keeps the foot’s power firmly focussed through the big toe, and its smooth surface area avoids discomfort and uneven pressure points. The footbed uses a bi-lateral stitching that allows the shoe to move and flex with the foot as it changes under pressure. This combined with the strategically placed synthetic and natural fibers of the footbed gives the shoe give and compression where its needed, resulting in consistent overall power of the foot across all climbing moves.

Being a microfibre upper, it this shoe will offer the absolute minimum amount of stretch.

With these shoes you don't climb the gym, the gym climbs you

I consider myself an average level indoor climber. After my previous pair I was looking a new shoe with a bit more aggressive design.

Scarpa Chimera caught my eye, with its shape, reviews, awesome color, laces and sale price. I already saw myself turning heads at the local gym and getting those "Nice shoes man" high fives.

I placed an order and ended up getting size 42.5. My street shoe size is 43.5 so i downsized one size in EU scale. This turned out to be a bad decision.

My index toe is the longest and with 42.5 I simply couldn't fit the toe inside the shoe. I decided to exchange the shoe to 43.5.

The 43.5 arrived and I tried them on. It felt like my whole upper body got stronger at that second and I started speaking french. "Allez, allez" yealled my inner Alex Ondra.

The shoes are tight but highly comfortable and the grip is superb. Even though the lacing closure takes a bit more time compared to velcro it gives you more adjustable shoe.

Standing on those petite holds feels comfortable but still the shoe gives that much needed stiffness.

My climbing improved a lot after fitting these shoes on. You can really put faith to your feet when you know that the shoe wont slip and there will be no sudden velcro openings.

With Scarpa Chimera shoes you don't climb the gym, the gym climbs you.

I will highly recommend these shoes as a great pair for indoor climbing and especially bouldering.
