Whether you're making this transition from the gym to the crag, from trad climbing to sport climbing, or are simply looking for a slightly more aggressive climbing shoe, the Scarpa Arpia is the perfect option to help you take the next step in your climbing career. The slightly downturned profile and asymmetric design allow you to edge like never before without being too aggressive for climbers making the leap from flat profile shoes. Built using Vibram XS Grip 2 rubber, these shoes are soft enough to let you smear to your heart's content and sticky enough to give you the confidence to skip the clip when you're redlining on the wall. The single strap will keep the Arpia secured to your foot no matter how long you're on the wall and the microsuede upper will keep these shoes soft and supple for years to come.
