The Veloce is a beginner climbing shoe like no other, instead of being stiff and flat it is soft and slightly downturned. It has been designed for indoor climbing because that is where most people start to climb (not to say you can't use the Veloce outside, it is just better suited to climbing inside). It is a very precise shoe that is great at standing on slippery footholds, smearing and edging.
Scarpa have made a new last called FKJ which sits your heel right at the back of the shoe with your toes still at the tip of the shoe. This means there is not loads of pressure at the ends of the toes and more importantly on the knuckles. This is also helped by the M50 rubber on the top of the shoe which is soft and won't put unnecessary pressure on your toes. The Veloce has a minimal midsole making it soft and great for climbing on steep ground, unlike other beginner climbing shoes, having a soft midsole also makes the shoe more comfortable. It has a DTS tension system which gives the shoe flexible support allowing you to smear and edge with ease.
The Veloce has a new PAF heel that puts less pressure on your heel and pushes your toes towards the tip of the shoe so your toes are as close to the end of the shoe as possible, giving you sensitivity and precision. The PAF heal has medium tension and will perform amazingly on tenuous heel hooks.
The upper is fully synthetic making it very comfortable and minimalize's stretch so you don't have to worry about your shoes bagging out. The Veloce is one of the only beginner climbing shoes that is seamless at the big toe, (like Scarpas high-performance shoes) this provides a better fitting shoe that is again more comfortable.
The sole is made from S72 rubber which is the softest rubber that Scarpa do which makes the Veloce amazing at smearing and standing on slippery footholds. But don't worry even though the S72 rubber is soft it is 4mm thick which will give the Veloce a good level of durability.
So, in summary, the Veloce is an amazing shoe for beginner climbers who want something different than a flat stiff climbing shoe, or for more advanced climbers that want a shoe they can wear for longer. It will perform well on steep ground, at smearing and edging, giving you a great all-round indoor climbing shoe.

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.

Best shoe from moving on from beginners shoe

I had a basic pair of very flat loose beginner shoes and the Veloce was exactly what I was looking for next. Nice snug fit around the whole foot, good slight downturn for overhanging routes, toe rubber for decent toe hooking potential, and a good rubber fold around the heel for a start at some basic heel hooks. My favorite aspect of the shoe is the soft rubber, making feeling your feet placements a breeze and I felt helped me start to trust my feet and improve my footwork. This makes smearing and using the wall where there are no footholds easy. A downside to this is edging on very small holds can become painful, doable but painful, and I would say this is definitely a weakness of these shoes. Street shoe 9.5UK, used 9.33UK.

no lateral crush in a climbing shoe is a wonderful feeling

after a helpful discussion with the incredibly helpful support crew, i decided to give these a go. they're billed as suitable for wide, square feet like my flippers - i downsized a tiny bit (UK7->EU40) as i was used to crampy, small shoes. that sizing was just about bang-on for me, and even better there's no lateral crushing of my toes - i don't even need to take them off between climbs! they're really nice shoes to boulder in - grippy, and the downturn isn't too aggressive. the rubber is very soft which is great for grip confidence but perhaps less good for wear.

Great Product

Great product especially for a beginner/intermediate shoe, however the sizing is out. shoe stretches really easily, if I was to order again I would get 2 and half sizes down as after 3/4 2 hour sessions they stretch out easily
