Focus and total refinement defines the drago. Sticky rubber is everywhere! the forefoot is wrapped in rubber which is perfect for sending steep technical boulders and difficult overhanging routes. The minimalist pcb band is borrowed from the fur i a, the heel cup is inspired by the instinct vs, and the Vibram xs grip 2 sole inspires confidence when smearing. Like all the shoes in the specialized performance subcategory, the drago is aggressively downturned across the toe-to-heel profile and highly asymmetric in its footprint. It is a perfect addition to the professional quiver of technical rock shoes.
Innovation and tradition share equally deep roots at SCARPA, a muti-generational, family-owned business whose headquarters and manufacturing facilities are in the same region of northern Italy where it was founded in 1938. SCARPA builds performance footwear for climbing, hiking, skiing, mountaineering, trail-running and other outdoor pursuits. Aside from being the Italian word for "shoe," SCARPA is an acronym for Societa Calzaturiera Asolana Riunita Pedemontana Anonima (Associated Shoe Manufacturing Company of the Asolo Mountain Area).
