The Scarpa Veloce Womens climbing shoe is designed as a downturned performance shoe for those relatively new to the sport but who are progressing quickly. It offers comfort and technology suitable for most forms of climbing, but with a focus on indoor climbing - it's pretty soft. The FKJ last has a square toe profile with quite a wide heel, so will fit a wide range of foot shapes yet maintain enough support, sensitivity and power to climb high end grades with ease and without the usual rock shoe pain. This means you can train or climb harder for longer in the Veloce. The PAF is like a shock absorber in the heel and works by absorbing over-compression in the toe box by but does not reduce the power available to you.
The microfibre upper offers a smooth, elasticated upper which is extremely comfortable. The twin ply microfibre gives the upper the ability to be resoled several times and easily washed.
The upper is mapped around the toes, matching the last, giving a soft next to skin feeling immediately and without pressure.
Wave strap system locks the foot in for fast and flexible closure and reducing excess layers for greater breathability.
SCARPA's new S-72 super sticky rubber ensures great friction even while pasting on volumes and smears and a the tried and tested M-50 toe patch keeps those toe hooks locked in place.
The Veloce has been made using Vegan friendly materials and glue.
Sizing As with all the modern performance Scarpa's, the Veloce provides reliably similar sizing - i.e. if you are a 42 in the Vapour Lace, Instinct Lace/Slipper, Boostic etc. you should be a 42 in this shoe.
