You can battle your way up big walls like a warrior, or you can dance with each pitch with the smoothness of a harmonious orchestr...a. The Women's Maestro Climbing Shoe is Scarpa's baton for smearing up The Nose's slabby lower half and vertical, edgy upper half.

The upper also had an IPC Tension rand to retain the shoe's original, slight downturn for life. A slight downturn gives enough power for tough cruxes, and still stays comfortable when the pitch seems to never end. Scarpa also added a full-length midsole for the support necessary on long multi-pitches. read more
