The Scarpa Techno X hits the mark when it comes to those looking for a supportive, all-day multi use rock climbing shoe. This high quality shoe is ideal for low to mid grade trad climbing or long mountain routes across the grades. The sturdy construction and tough toe rand make the Techno X an equally good indoor climbing shoe.
Utilising facets of the old and new Scarpa have created a precise, comfortable shoe with a work horse ethic and bombproof construction. A flat, accommodating last sucks in most foot shapes, giving a precision fit without the necessity for bunching the toes. The midsole is pretty stiff making for a good edging shoe and the asymmetric speed-lacing and padded neoprene lined tongue allow for a good range of adjustment. The natural suede upper forms to the foot with use and breaths well in warmer climes. Finally, a Vibram XS Edge sole unit gives great friction as well as edge-hold and the extra thick, extended toe rand gives great durability and foot protection - ideal for jamming crack aficionados.
Overall, a brilliant trad shoe adept on most terrains but particularly suited to crack and face climbing.
