Scarpa is proud to introduce the newest member of its collection of climbing shoes. The Arpia Climbing Shoe is the perfect next step from beginner climbing shoes. Beginning climbing shoes generally have flatter profiles to stay comfy while folks learn how to climb, and more advanced climbing shoes are uncomfortably downturned to crank up performance. The Arpia has a slight downturn to slightly increase your performance potential, except it still maintains enough comfort to keep you thinking about the climb instead of your crooked toes. The Arpia has an snug fit similar to slippers, with the exception of the single z-strap closure for quick-and-easy adjustments. Scarpa made it with a microsuede upper that stretches to conform to your foot shape, and there's a soft-touch backing so your foot can easily slip in. Vibram's XS Grip 2 gives this shoe's sole some of the best traction in the climbing community.
