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.

Without a doubt, the best and most comfortable shoe I have used. With a thin sole you feel everything you stand on and with a lot of rubber on your toe it's the best shoe for toe hooks. When it comes to size, I would have gone half or full size down from your usual size.
I really love this shoe and use it for indoor bouldering, lead climbing, competitions and on the rocks! It's great for hooking, toe-hooking, yet still comfortable.
The only negative about it, is that it's pretty thin leather so it wears down quite quickly. If you use it often, it won't last longer than 4 months... However it's a great shoe and super soft, so totally worth it and on EpicTv it's super affordable as well!
First I was a bit sceptical about these shoes, really soft, expensive,... when I tried a pair of my friend I couldn't believe myself, I felt super comfortable and got feeling that I could step precise specially on flat holds, heel and toe hooking. Even though the price is high, it's worth it for performance you will get!
It smears to everything, sticking to the rock fantastically, at the beginning was quite difficult to take the footholds with the peak beacuse I never had so asymmetric shoes, but once you start to understand...wow.
Excellent heel, likewise fitting, even if the peak is not the most powerful hook it makes feel enough confident to try movements you never tried.
I used to rock a pair of Solutions (39.5) but I always felt I was a bit too light (66 kg) to be able to smear with them properly. Hence I wanted to get something softer and the Drago (size 41) fit that criteria, and now my smearing is impeccable . Besides the softness, they fit my feet really well, I had some hot spots out of the box, although they were gone after 3 sessions or so. The only thing I can complain about is that I got really tired in my feet the first few sessions, however I knew that was too be expected. Now my feet are stronger and I feel like I've become a better climber because of it.
