Scarpa have relaunched their third version of the iconic booster. Lessons have been learnt making this iteration their best yet of the hugely popular shoe. Sensitivity and precision are the name of the game with Booster, which was designed to be the shoe of choice for sport climbing on overhanging and steep terrain.
Changes include a slightly narrower heel with more sculpting and a slightly wider forefoot than previous models. The last is also new, it is downturned and asymmetrical. Power is facilitated through the DTS rand, it concentrates the strength of the foot with its asymmetrical support ribbon that drives energy through the forefoot. Compression through the toes and a comfortable heel fit are provided by the PAF system.
The sole means that there will never need to be a compromise to movement with the Booster. It is constructed using a one-third length sole with VIbram XS Grip 2 rubber. The new Booster model offers better stiffness for greater reliability and stability on tiny edges as the midsole is slightly larger. Whilst hollowing in the middle of the midsole means the Booster can be trusted to deliver when smearing too.
