Give your confidence a boost.

The Scarpa Boostic Climbing Shoe is the new steep-terrain-crushing kid on the block. The Boostic’s aggressive down-turned shape and precise heel fit, combined with Vibram XS Edge rubber and a sticky toe patch for tricky bicycles, spell out a recipe for red-pointing success. Tighten down the floating hook-and-loop closure system, lock the Boostic onto the first dime-edge you see, and feel your confidence get a boost of its own.

  • The floating hook-and-loop closure system allows you to strap the Boostic down as tight as you want, where you want, giving the shoe a custom fit
  • The Boostic features Scarpa’s V-Tension system, designed to provide an extended toe position that reduces pressure and compression in the toe box to increase comfort without sacrificing performance
  • Vibram XS EDGE rubber is formulated to resist distortion, edge like a boss, and maintain performance in hot and cold temperatures
  • The super-sticky rubber toe patch aids your most difficult toe-hooking and bicycle moves

Powerful edging machine

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Just picked up a pair of these and couldn't be happier. I have only used them in the gym for a couple days, but I'm really impressed. They have ridiculous edging power, enough down-turn for steep routes, and fit my feet perfectly. My only complaint is that they don't make them larger than a 45. I wear a 12.5 street shoe, so downsizing to the 45 means they are really tight right now. Maybe they will stretch out a bit over time, but I'm surprised that they don't offer a 45.5 or 46. I know my feet aren't little, but there are a lot of guys out there with 12 and 13 street shoes that will struggle to make this shoe work for them. Other than that, I couldn't be happier with them! i can't wait for some warmer weather and a few days at Smith Rock to test them properly.

Favorite Sport Climbing Shoe

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I own multiple climbing shoes, but these are the ones I always repurchase. They're a great for bouldering and sport climbing. I've jammed these into a few cracks, and while I wouldn't recommend using them for that, the worked passably. I wear a women's 7.5 (sometimes 8) street shoe and I bought a size 38 (size women's 7). I cried for the first couple of climbs, but they stretched out to a tolerable fit. If you're looking for a more comfortable fit I suggest you get your regular shoe size.

The Ultimate Technical Edging Shoe

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: 43

The Scarpa Boostic is a superlative technical edging shoe. Besides edging on tiny credit cards, nubbins, and crystals and toeing into pockets, it also shines in other, unexpected areas. Due to its moderate downturn and high stiffness, the Boostic allows you to pull in with your feet like hands. If sized snugly, you can edge on anything. (For a wide foot like mine, this is .5 size above street shoe size) When sized more generously, it is also a surprisingly sensitive shoe for smearing and smedging, a decent granite crack shoe, and a comfortable all-day performance shoe, all while preserving most of its ridiculous edging power. (Full size above street shoe for me)
Due to the absurd amount of power in the toe, this shoe always feel sticky, even with Vibram Edge rubber.
Narrower feet will still fit well but a smaller relative size will be required.
For any angle of edgy or pockety limestone, nothing that fits my foot compares. You can go virtually hands free on small edges due to the stiffness and support of the shoe. This is the ultimate shoe for technical granite climbing as well. Size snugly for single pitches and size more generously for long, hard free routes. Unlike most new performance shoes, this shoe achieves its phenomenal edging power not only from the tension between the big toe and the heel, but also from its sheer stiffness. This allows it to preserve impressive edging performance even when sized for comfort.
I only have two complaints about this shoe:
The first is that the heel is baggy when the rest of the shoe fits. This is more due to my small, narrow heels than a fault of the shoe. The second complaint is that the shoe is fairly high volume, so if you size up, expect to cinch the straps all the way down.
I really hope Scarpa doesn't discontinue or "improve" this shoe, as that would be a huge disservice to the climbing community. Just look what shoes Peter Croft and Josh Wharton wear for most of their climbing...

Sending MACHINES!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 41.5

Looking to crush some hard routes? BUY THESE.
If you have "Scarpa foot" (wide forefoot, high-volume foot and heel), chances are this shoe will fit great on you. I wear a size 9/42 in my street shoe and I got these in a 41.5, and its a great performance fit without extreme discomfort. Break-in period is a little painful, but after a few long climbing sessions they'll stretch to your foot/your foot will mold into them.
They perform fantastically on just about everything besides slabs or cracks, but they really shine on vertical-to-slightly-overhanging routes. They have incredible edging power on all types of rock, and do very well steeper terrain as well. For truly overhanging roof climbs, I would wear something with a softer, stickier rubber. Heel and toe hooks are great, very secure without any slipping or pain.
Buy these shoes fairly tight, and throw them on to send your hardest routes. Or buy them in a more comfortable size, and you could probably use them on just about everything. Scarpa makes some of the best shoes on the market, and you can't go wrong with these!

Aggressive Comfort

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 40.5

These are really comfortable for an aggressive down-turned shoe. Performance is solid.

I am size 9 street shoe. I wear these in a 40.5. I wear the Instincts in a 40, for comparison. In La Sportiva Katana, I'm a 38.5.

Hands for Toes

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Size Bought: 42.5

I purchased these for a friend, but here's his feedback: "The Boostic is the climbing shoe of ultimate sending destiny. This shoe fits a narrow foot well and it fits true to street shoe size. I wear a size 10 street shoe and the 42.5 (9.5 Mens US) fits snug and perfect. They seem to wear pretty well so far, it’s been about 8 days in the gym and on sandstone without much noticeable wear. But man, did these bad boys step up my climbing game. They can hold an edge on the nipple of a polished marble statue covered in Vaseline like nobody’s business. I can climb stairs made for ants! I can stand on a nail head! IT’S LIKE I HAVE FRIGGIN TREEFROG HANDS FOR TOES!!!!!!!!! I like them."

Amazing edging and toe - blue feet!!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 45

I bought this shoe in November 2013, and has been on rotation as my go-to shoe for all of the steep and/or thin routes and boulders or anything where I feel like I could use the extra confidence in edging. The break-in period was painful (I bought a size EUR 45 - I wear a US 12 street shoe) but only a month or so long (2-3 climbing days per week, shoe off IMMEDIATELY following the climb). After the break-in, the shoe feels locked-in without excess pressure points.



Two-and-a-half years and two resoles (Rock N Resole in Boulder, CO) later, my feet still turn blue. All of the edging performance you'd ever need, and all it costs is very festive feet for the rest of the life of the shoe. Endless reservoirs of blue and green leather dye. It's almost as impressive as the performance of the shoe.

Amazing edging and toe - blue feet!!

"Endless reservoirs of blue and green leather dye. It's almost as impressive as the performance of the shoe."

Haha this. Scarpa seems to dye the heck out of all of their shoes. After turning my feet blue for years, I decided to finally try to "empty out" the dye in my techno x shoes. I ran water over them for hours but the dye never ran out. Dyed half my apartment blue though.

A dream for wider feet!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Size Bought: 42

These are my first pair of Scarpas and I am very pleased with how comfortable they are! My first pair of aggressive shoes were the La Sportiva Miuras, and though they climbed extremely well, my feet were always in pain. My feet were just a little too wide to ever be comfortable in the Miura so I decided to switch to the Boostic. I went up a full size from my Miuras (though I could have crammed into a half size) because I wanted something a little more comfortable. The Boostics are very stiff and have performed very well in the gym and on the limestone outside of St. George last weekend! All in all my favorite qualities of this shoe are: Sticky rubber, aggressive downturn, secure closure system, and very excellent toe, heel, and edge performance! Grab a pair today!

Fit like a glove

    I have wide feet so I am pretty picky about what shoes i cram them into. The Evolv Shaman were a good fit (I ran them in my street shoe size-10) and now I got the Boostics in a 42.5 and they fit great. The breakin period was a bit rough but didn't take too long til they confirmed to my foot. But them tight and tough it out. First time using these in the gym I crushed some problems I had been projecting. Worth the money in my opinion

    This is a nice shoe to use for both bouldering and sport climbing. It is pretty sensitive and precise yes supportive enough. Nice fit and high quality materials from scarpa. The leather breaks in awsomely.

    Confidence booster!

      Confidence booster, great for ladies too

      • Size Bought: 37

      Amazing shoe. I got a bunch of difference shoes to test out, and i used this one after the five ten anasazi on a small overhang artificial boulder. Wow! i went up much faster and my feet were so much more precise and secure with toe locks, heel hooks etc! Then i realized it was the shoe, not me, and i came back down to earth :)



      Now, the ever difficult question, sizing!

      This shoe runs smaller for me than other Scarpa. I am a street size 6-6.5 women; 36-36.5 european and i bought a 37 in the boostic. They are very snug on, and i would not say standing in them is comfortable. They feel good climbing though. These would compare to a 36.5 in vapor v or instinct.



      I have sportiva women solutions in 36; miuras in 35.5 for further reference



      Photo, coming out from the overhang, i have the left toe jammed in, the right heel hooked on the side, i was so secure on the feet i basically stood up next...! love these shoes

      Confidence booster, great for ladies too

      Boostic: My go to shoes!

      • Size Bought: 45

      Street shoe: 12
      Wide Foot
      Size in the Boostic: 45/11.5
      Uses: Sport Climbing, Bouldering
      Tested: Sandstone and Limbstone

      What to say about this shoe? This Shoe is a Crusher of Stone! I love everything about this shoe. I have a very wide foot with a high arch, it was always a pain to find a shoe that had performance fit but didn't kill me. I like to wear my shoes at a comfortable tight! I have this pair in a 44 for Bouldering and 45 for Sport Climbing. The way Scarpa designed the shoe is Amazing, Powerful but comfortable. Scarpa did a mixture of Suede and Loirca: Suede will stretch and Lorica will not. What this does is allows the shoe to stretch where you need it and keep the last of the shoe. Be prepared for a break in period!

      Pros:
      -Crusher Of Stone!
      -Powerful
      -Heel Hooks
      -Comfortable
      -Edging Guru

      Cons:
      -Price!

      Boostic: My go to shoes!

      True to Size

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size

      I've never owned a pair of climbing shoes before that were actually sized according to the street shoe size, but these are right on the money. I wear a women's 7.5 and I bought the 38.5. They were exceptionally painful to break in, but after a few sessions in the gym they were ready to take to the crag with very little, to no pain.

      AWESOME SHOES!!!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size

      I have been climbing in these shoes for 8 months and just wore a hole in the toe. These are my gym and outdoor shoes, I have been consistently climbing in these 5 days a week for 1-1.5 hrs per session. They are great for steep and technical edging. LOVE the suction these shoes have from the moment you step into them. I wear a 9.5 street shoe and bought these in a 42.5. They were a little tight on the break in period but now are very comfortable. I have a smaller heel so there is a little bit of space right there. I have never had a problem heel hooking anything in these though.

      Amazing

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size

      I am able to place my feet on anything and feel confident doing so with these. These are my go to shoe. I love when I first put them on and they suction to my foot and I am ready to send.
