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.

Now don't be me!! However I bought these shoes due to the massive price difference between my local gym in Australia and the epic tv shop. In saying this they are my first ever pair of climbing shoes and they are incredible!!
I thought I would try some Drago's when my Vapour V's died and they really are epic. not the most comfortable to start with (Vapours win hands down there) but after a few sessions they softened up a bit and are fine. Edging is awesome, toe hooks and heel hooks feel amazing. An all round amazing choice.
I've tried about 6 or 7 different pairs of shoes and this is the best and most comfortable shoe. Out of the box, whilst very tight, I was able to climb in them. After breaking in they were even slightly walkeable in. The rubber is great, the flexibility is great. Just one caveat, they lose their downturn and aggressiveness very fast. I've been wearing them now for close to 3 months and whilst still fitting good they are almost flat. This might be related to being such a soft shoe. I will definitely resole them and see how they hold up after that. To be clear, although they were walkeable in, I did take care to take them off after almost all climbs, so no walking around the gym with them.
Fits pretty well except on my heel but that's more my fault than any issue with the shoe. But once I had tried these on I couldn't bring myself to send them back to find a better fitting heel.
They are so soft and sensitive. Perfect for bouldering but I mainly use mine for sport climbing and theyre brilliant indoors and out.
You'll stick to everything easily, the toe patch lets you be sloppy as hell when you're pumped out of your mind and even with the heel not fitting me properly at all I can still get fairly solid heel hooks in.
If you climb indoors a lot these are totally insane on smears and volumes and although not the best on edges I manage to climb all my hardest routes in these regardless of foothold type.
But if you don't have precise footwork I'd advise training it before torturing the soft rubber on these into oblivion.
Best climbing shoe I have ever owned. Haven't had to doubt a foothold since I started using the shoe. The Vibram rubber sticks to everything and works like a charm.
The shape of the shoe is quite agressive but after wearing it for one or two times it gets just soft enough to feel very comfortable in the wall(not the best to walk around in though, so carry a pair of slippers for inside the gym^^).
Very happy with the purchase
