Scarpa Force X
The Scarpa Force X is an entry-level to intermediate climbing shoe that performs best on multi-pitch, trad, and alpine climbs, with all the comfort of an approach shoe. Designed with guides in mind, the Force X work best on lower gradient routes and alpine climbs where their rigid support and natural shape provide all-day wearability and edging power.
The Force X is almost more approach shoe than climbing shoe. Padding in the heel cup and the airmesh tongue give it the cushioned and breathable feel of an approach shoe, and the V-Tension randing system adds extra support to the front of the toes to create the minimum amount of pressure possible. The Force X will thus work best on the type of climbs that are too steep and technical for an approach shoe, and where ordinary climbing shoes would be too aggressive and cause discomfort.
The Force X uses suede leather with a partial lining, so expect stretch up to a half size.

Vibram XS Edge™
Rubber compound built for maximum performance on micro holds and extreme edging. This formula uses an improved plastic deformation resistance that ensures the utmost stability, rigidity, and support on footholds in hot or cold weather, as well as generally increasing durability.
V-Tension™ Active Randing System
The V-Tension system provides extra support and comfort in climbing shoes designed for all-day wear. It supports the front of the foot and helps extend the toes slightly for climbers who don’t like added pressure on their toes when they climb.

The main benefit of this shoe over most climbing shoes of its type is its comfort. The whole inside is padded like a trainer. This makes the shoe look a bit big on your foot but it is worth it for how comfortable it is! I'm still getting used to them but it seems like they're a great shoe for all types of climbing, good sole, design, etc. Recommended!
