Scarpa Drago LV Climbing Shoe
The Drago is most well known for winning comps and sending the worlds hardest routes and boulders and now it comes in a long-awaited Low Volume version. It still has all of the features that everyone knows and loves about the Drago but now with a narrower toe box, tighter instep and tighter heel, making them perfect for people with thinner lower volume feet. The Drago LV features the incredibly sticky Vibram® XS Grip 2 which is perfect for standing on volumes, slippery polished edges and smears which is one of the many reasons you see this shoe on the World Cup circuit so often. The Flexan 1.0 midsole in the Drago LV also helps to make this shoe a climbing beast, it is stiff enough to stand on small edges but soft enough for comp style boulders with slippery slopy holds and volumes. Lots of steep boulders and routes involve tenuous toe and heel hooks but luckily the Drago LV is no stranger to toe hooking thanks to a huge piece of incredibly sticky M50 rubber across the toe gives you maximum rubber contact-making even the most tenuous toe hooks easy, and don't worry if you prefer heel hooking, because the Drago LV has you covered there to, it has a PAF heel system which gives you a proved fit and incredible heel hooking performance. All of these features create the ultimate competition, bouldering and sport climbing weapon now in a lower volume!

Best heel on a shoe i've ever had, glove like fit for those who dont have much of a heel. Went half size down from my scarpa helix, will stretch out after few sessions.
I have weirdly low volume feet for a man and the original Drago felt very baggy. Things a beast. Only complaints are it has a very high arch that hurts a bit after a couple minutes, and it seems to wear a bit faster than other shoes I own.
