Scarpa Drago Climbing Shoe
The Scarpa Drago is a highly sensitive, supple, and soft climbing shoe for steep technical boulders and demanding overhanging routes. The Drago shares many similarities with Scarpa's other highly aggressive model the Furia, but the Drago features a thicker, more durable outsole that will increase pushing-strength on edges as well as a more flexible and nimble slipper closure system for effortless toe hooking. With the high-friction Vibram® XS Grip 2 rubber, the Drago excels on anything steep with microholds and edges, as well as smearing on glassy, polished rock.
The Drago features a microsuede upper that will provide next to no stretch, and it should be fitted snugly for a performance fit.

To be honest, I can’t remember the last time I bought any other climbing shoes. I probably used about 30 pairs of Dragos. Yes, they are quite expensive and no, they don’t last as long as some other climbing shoes with harder rubber. But are Drago shoes the best climbing shoes for sport climbing? Definitely YES! I would recommend Drago to any climber especially competition climber for maximum friction on slaby volumes.
The pain is rewarded! It is a hard to break show but when you put it on you feel it is part of you! great feeling and perfect grip on the smallest things on the rocks. Fully recommended!
I was a Lasportiva loyal user until I met the Dragos and then it was love at first use :). I'm a fan of soft shoes, but I always complain about performance of soft shoes when pressing small foot holds in overhangs... the downturn of these ones is so good that I can press and never cut off... I have thin feet, and i'm picky with the heels, but these ones are just my perfect fit... i'm in my 4th pair so I can say I found the ones for me... although, I don't use them at the gym, they get worn fast...
If you want a high performance and comfortable climbing shoe that is amazing for basically everything indoors this is a great option, with outdoor climbs, be wary of which climbs you do in it as the rubber is VERY soft
This is my first pair of really soft shoes and what a revelation!
Went indoor bouldering with them and first impression is really strange as you can feel everything you step on but once you get used to it the feedback you get is such that you feel all the more confident smearing or stepping on the tiniest hold.
As the sole is so soft you can also bend your toes and almost grab a hold or bend them upwards to toehook. Heel feels good but not as great as my Solutions. Size may be the culprit but tried half a size down and my toes were too curled and it somehow spoiled the sensitivity.
Rubber feels so thin I fear for it's durability and so i save them for the hardest boulders but so far so good. In any case i am totally addicted and will surely pick up another pair when these wear down.
