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.

Break in period for this shoe was much less painful than my other shoes, with the shoe fitting on comfortably out of the box almost like a sock. The inner leather lining is also very soft and comfortable. HOWEVER, the heel cup is extremely deep compared to some other shoes and didn't really fit me. Might have to do with me having small heels (probably need LV shoes next time), but no matter how i sized or pulled down on the strap my heel still had a large empty space, and I couldn't pull down on heel hooks too well. Shouldn't be an issue if you dont have a tiny heel, but I nevertheless still love this shoe and would gladly wear these despite the ill fitting heel cup.
These shoes are extremely high performance, with super sticky rubber and a very sensitive, soft toe box. Really good for smearing and volume climbing and basically any climb that needs high friction. Shoes are quite agressive and can really step on small nubs well due to how sensitive and sticky it is, with the shoe basically wrapping around and sticking to small footholds, and you can climb much more confidently as you can really feel the rock. Toe patch is also very large and sticky, and toehooks pretty much stick by themselves and require little effort. The rubber on the toe patch seems much thicker than other shoes (say my solutions, which wore down quite quickly), and seem like they won't be wearing out too soon.
Would super recommend these shoes for indoor gym climbing, but you may have your reservations about using these outdoors as the shoes sacrifice stickiness for durability, and the rubber seems to be wearing down quite quickly. Probably shouldn't use these for outdoor climbs especially those with sharp rocks.
To be honest, I can’t remember the last time I bought any other climbing shoes. I probably used about 30 pairs of Dragos. Yes, they are quite expensive and no, they don’t last as long as some other climbing shoes with harder rubber. But are Drago shoes the best climbing shoes for sport climbing? Definitely YES! I would recommend Drago to any climber especially competition climber for maximum friction on slaby volumes.
The pain is rewarded! It is a hard to break show but when you put it on you feel it is part of you! great feeling and perfect grip on the smallest things on the rocks. Fully recommended!
I was a Lasportiva loyal user until I met the Dragos and then it was love at first use :). I'm a fan of soft shoes, but I always complain about performance of soft shoes when pressing small foot holds in overhangs... the downturn of these ones is so good that I can press and never cut off... I have thin feet, and i'm picky with the heels, but these ones are just my perfect fit... i'm in my 4th pair so I can say I found the ones for me... although, I don't use them at the gym, they get worn fast...
If you want a high performance and comfortable climbing shoe that is amazing for basically everything indoors this is a great option, with outdoor climbs, be wary of which climbs you do in it as the rubber is VERY soft
