“The Scarpa Drago is one of the softest shoes we’ve ever climbed in. This incredible softness translates into best-in-class sensitivity. No other shoe was able to transmit as much tactile sensations from the rock’s every bump and rugosity. Our tough-footed testers loved these sensations and raved about the confidence it gave them while utilizing micro footholds. “- Outdoor Gear Lab

Designed for 3D climbing on large holds where heel hooks, toe hooks, and smearing is the name of the game it is clear why the Drago is your best friend.
