The Scarpa Chimera is a top end climbing shoe which is built around the same highly popular last as the Drago and Furia. The Chimera is soft, but not quite as soft as the Drago or Furia allowing for an increased edging ability. A great fit can be dialed in with the asymmetric lacing system and the SRT rand and hand built heel make for excellent heel and toe hooks. Scarpa have included a TPS plastic insert under the forefoot in the Chimera, this gives support to the toes when they are pushing down hard, however, when you are smearing it stretches out increasing the contact surface area for a better grip.
