FIT

The über- soft Furia S gives enough lat­er­ally for wide feet. Our tester came up one Euro size from his usual Scarpa fit.

CON­STRUC­TION

Down­turned, asym­met­ri­cal last; mi­crofiber up­pers; Wave ( zigzag­ging sin­gle strap) hookand- loop clo­sure; Flexan 1mm mid­sole with float­ing big- toe pad; XS Grip 2 3.5mm sole

CON­CLU­SION

This steep- rock beast builds off the Furia to add a more ver­sa­tile clo­sure sys­tem to fine- tune fit, plus a beefier heel, gi­ant, per­fo­rated toes­cum patch, and in­creased sen­si­tiv­ity with a nom­i­nal mid­sole. The chis­eled toe of­fered mad pre­ci­sion, if you have strong feet, and was boss at dig­ging into con­cav­i­ties. The Furia S ex­celled on rad­i­cal steeps, es­pe­cially with glommy fea­tures and jessery. Edg­ing was a tad “smedgy.”
