Scarpa Origin Women's Climbing Shoe
The SCARPA Origin Women's is a comfortable, all-day beginner’s climbing shoe with a lower volume, designed by the legendary Scarpa designer Heinz Mariacher who wished to create the ultimate performance rock shoe for the novice climber.
With the recognition that beginner’s climbing shoes need to be just as thought about in terms of design as any other type of shoe, Scarpa enlisted one of their most experienced designers to produce a shoe that would kickstart a climber’s passion: the result was the Scarpa Origin Women's. A flat profile, neutral shape, and full-foot midsole is both comfortable and supportive, the best to build foot strength in the foot. An easy to use hook-and-loop dual velcro closure provides a secure fit with simple on-and-offs, but the real cherry on top is the upper: made of a lush leather, it ensures an all-day comfortable wear, and will mould to the foot perfectly to guarantee the minimum amount of stress with the greatest performance. Proprietary Vision rubber for the best combination of grip and durability.

SCARPA's Vision rubber, a proprietary compound that is both sticky and resilient to all the conditions that new climbers' feet will experience.
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.

Its a very good shoe for beginners or a comfy shoe for experienced climbers. With its good price you get a nice compromise between comfy but still precise. Especially good for training indoors or multipitch routes.
Give your feet a rest, they don't have to hurt all the time. You still can put on your high perfomance shoe when you do harder problems/routes.
-rather stiff midsole gives stability
-leather top stretches up to one size (depending on how tight you buy them)
-heel fits well
-double velcro brings good opportunities of adjustment
