Drago

$111.12

The Drago is Scarpa's latest performance shoe. It is so new that the only images we have available right now are those that we took at the Outdoor tradeshow in Friedrichshafen (manufacturers images coming soon).

The most similar shoe in the Scarpa range would be the Furia, however the Drago is much more than just a Furia with one less velcro strap. It has the same legendary heel construction as the Instinct VS and an extended rubber cover above the toe area. The heel construction gives it an advantage over the Furia in heel hooking, and increases the tension throughout the shoe. As a result the Drago will usually have the performance edge over the Furia. On the other hand the softer construction of the Furia is generally considered more comfortable and so the Furia may be preferred for longer session and multi-pitch routes. The Scarpa Drago is expected to be a hit with competition climbers and boulderers.

Please be aware that the general release of this shoe is Autumn 2016. Our stock comes from the Drago pre-release which has been limited globally to just 1000 pairs (estimated 200 pairs in the UK). If you want a pair, and do not want to wait until the Autumn we suggest that you get your order in sharpish!

How I choose the correct size?

All climbing shoe models fit differently. We put together our 'shoeculator' to help you find the right size in a new model, compared to your old climbing shoes or street shoes.

This sizing advice is based on two pairs of brand new shoes. Leather shoes tend to stretch more than synthetic shoes. When switching from synthetic to leather you may want to select a smaller size.

Customer questions

Q

Hi. Is the Scarpa Drago also or women? My girlfriend uses a Scarpa INSTINCT VS size 37.5 EUR today.Could she then use the Drago in the same size? Best regards // Kim

A

Yes, if your girlfriend has been climbing in Instinct VS then the Drago will also have a suitable intermal volume for her foot. Sizing is very similar between these two models and so 37.5 should be correct.

Q

Will these shoes stretch? Will I have to buy these in a smaller size to compensate for an increase in shoe size over time?

A

The Drago have a microsuede upper, which is a synthetic material. As a result these shoes should stretch very little over time.

A Scarpa Solution

Probably one of the best shoes for bouldering ever made. Can put in some serious work on overhanging routes and feels incredible. I would say it's very comparable to the La Sportiva Solutions, but Scarpa always seem to fit my feet a bit better (having slightly wider feet). The heel is one of the best on the market (taken from instinct lineup, which I believe may be copied from LS). Probably not the best for outdoor slab or multipitch, but otherwise it's perfect for anything hard you want to send.

Nothing to say except these are the best shoes I ever wore. At first I was a little sceptical about it's softness, but after trying it on the wall all doubts went away. It stands on almost vertical reliefs and it's flexibility allows to put it into incredible positions. Also there are the first shoes that fitted well on my heel. I had Evolv Pontas 44 size, Miura 43 size, Stix 43 size and I bought Dragos in 43.5 because of synthetic materials that doesn't strech a lot ant it fitted like a glove! Maybe next pair will be 43, but the current size is comfirtable enough and works well on both micro footholds and large slopers.

Bought these from this website, and tried them out straight away. I thought it would just be all hype surrounding these shoes, but they are the real deal, smearing in these is unlike anything I've previously experienced, and the edging is so good I feel like I'm cheating. I'm completely blown away by how snug and comfortable these feel (for one of my feet, the other is slightly bigger and in a world of pain, but I can't blame the shoes for that).

Bought these at my local wall in January after hearing so much about them. Such an excellent shoe! I was stuck in my horrendous stiff Boostics (they never broke in, smearing was near impossible) and these were like putting clouds on my feet. I was finally able to smear! Air does escape when I wear them and jump around, so I guess these have a high volume where my feet are low. They are comfortable to wear for a good few hours once broken in and edging is amazing, I don't think I've come off a foot hold unless it was my own doing. I hardly use the heel at all, it could be much better - I don't feel secure using it (it doesn't pop out, it just doesn't feel great). The rubber is definitely soft which is ideal for indoor bouldering but after my first time outdoors (3 days of climbing), a month later there's a hole at the point of the toe box.

In short: Comfortable, turned down high performance shoe. Very sensitive, great on edges and smearing. Heel could be better, rubber is soft making it perfect for indoors but not so for outdoor!

About me:
Height - 6'1 (184cm)
Shoe size - 43.5
Weight - 86kg
Level - intermediate
Experience - 1.5 years
Shoes owned - Instinct VS, Boldrini Apache5, Sportiva Genius, Boreal Joker

Good:
- Ridiculously comfortable. I managed 5 hours in these on my second use. I've just spent a week in Font with them, climbing 6 days for several hours a day.
- The heels are as good as the instinct VS, just sticker and slightly softer.
- The toe box improves on the VS by having fewer hot spots, conforms to the foot more uniformly.
- The toe rubber is awesome for toe hooks and because of the shape of the toe box, are also some of the most comfortable I've experienced.

Not so good (for some?):
- The midsole can be a bit tight on the edge(blade) of the foot after a long session and can ache, but I think this is pretty dependant on foot shape.
- The fit is very snug, I refer to them as sticky socks. This may not suit all tastes.
- The tops of your other toes (i.e. not your (most likely) savaged big toes) can rub a little, see aforementioned snug fit.
- Super sensitive, this means you can feel tiny holds to crank on, this means you really FEEL tiny holds to crank on.

Would definitely recommend these shoes to anybody somewhat experienced as a climber if what you're looking for is a comfortable performance shoe (oxymoron!). If you have a pair of VS they size pretty much exactly the same, but more comfortable.
