Booster $150

Scarpa has up­graded the Booster, one of its more pre­cise shoes. The Booster is per­fect on small footholds on steep ter­rain. There is a new ten­sion rand sim­i­lar to the Furia Air, keep­ing the shoe down­turned and asym­met­ric. The plas­tic mid­sole is now nearly the full shape of the rub­ber sole piece, which means it will be stiffer on edges. The up­per now has a ce­ramic mi­crofi­bre which is a thin­ner ma­te­rial and abra­sion re­sis­tant. While these are amaz­ing for sport climb­ing, the heel and toe rub­ber make them ideal for burly boul­ders.
