Scarpa Techno X Climbing Shoe
The Scarpa Techno X is their updated trad climbing shoe, designed for all things crack and edge climbing. The Scarpa Techno X is of a completely unaggressive design, with a rigid midsole that provides ample support for methodical slotting into hand-width cracks and hovering on tiny edges placing gear. The shoes uses the Vibram XS Edge rubber, their harder compound that resists deformation when under heavy load. This is ideal for foot-intensive trad and face routes where the feet need to be as secure as possible in order to confidently place gear. Bi-Tension randing removes the need to painfully jam toes forward to drive power, reducing discomfort whilst maintaining power as well as ensuring unfaltering control and focus on edges. 4mm of rubber balances sensitivity with durability, stimulating your ability to find minute features in the rock on more technical climbs. This is a shoe that loves to be stuffed into cracks all-day long.
The Techno X features a microsuede/suede upper, so expect it to 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.
A rand that that pulls power from the toes to achieve performance with less tension and less painful toe cramming. The Bi-Tension Rand also reduces the amount of rubber needed under the toes, which means a lower weight and a higher sensitivity.

When walking down the street, do small children run away from you in terror? Do you hear their parents whispering, "My god, the Sasquatch! It's real!"?
On a trip to the Peak District, did you have to do an emergency stop at the Loughborough Go Outdoors because you forgot your climbing shoes - and then make the terrible mistake of buying a pair of La Sportiva Muira, because you heard they were good for edging? A few weeks later, did you weep tears of pain and sorrow, as your monstrous, elephantine, gargantuan, lower appendages literally exploded the buckles off those poor little Sportivas?
If so, then you too probably have FAT FEET.
In which case, you need to WEAR SCARPA.
I never met a pair of Scarpa I didn't like. These are no exception. A comfortable fit on even the fattest of feet (like mine), and with stiff rubber that means you can squeeze all of that bulking mass of a foot down into the toe box, for maximum performance on edges and smears.
As advertised, the Techno X are ideal for trad climbing, but will work equally well for easy-angled sport, and casual bouldering. A superb shoe, well worth your money. Especially as Epic TV is currently selling them for 50% off - a frankly ridiculous deal.
Not sure if they are right for you? Buy them anyway! Still not sure? Just go in to your local branch of Cotswolds and get the staff to bring out 4 different sizes, until you find a pair that fits. Then order them off here. For 50% off. Bargain.
Been using them three times a week for 3 years up to 7B on lead, a secret weapon you can wear all day.
These shoes have helped me climb all kinds of rock from slate slabs in Wales to over hanging sand stone in Kentucky!
Getting another pair only because I can't re-sole them for a second time, only slight issue was wearing through the upper of the toe box from dragging my foot up the wall for balance.
Good for people with wider feet and the heel stays on well for heel hooking.
Great shoes for a crazy cheap price!
Good quality shoes and EPIC delivery..luckly it took less time than Ulisses to arrive to Itaca. Just few days to have the box here in Cyprus for replacing the broken shoes
This title may seem dramatic, but let me tell you I am not often dramatic but this calls for drama.
As a new and enthusiastic climber I was keen to grab myself a bargain, a good pair of shoes to last but at a reasonable price.
I started my quest wading through the depths of the internet trying to find the right shoes at the right price. Just as I was about to give up, a shining beacon of hope came forth: Epictv. And Epic it is. At first I couldn't believe it. Surely this can't be this price? Surely the delivery cant be this quick and such good value? Surely I'm missing something? My only regret? Not pressing 'Add to basket' sooner. The delivery was fast and free! Only 3 working days will full package tracking.
The product is also great! Fits well, looks good, comfortable and grips to holds like a second pair of hands giving you unrivaled confidence on the wall!
I will definitely be using the website again for all my climbing quests in the future.
If you are on the fence about buying this shoe from this website, I urge you to take the leap. You won't regret it.
I like these shoes, they're preatty comfy and work good on edges. Only disadvantage is that my feet get blue, and it takes days for the paint to wear off. I bought these shoes before, they lasted for two years of indoor (and occasionally outdoor) bouldering!
