New Scarpa Climbing Shoe

The Maestro is a revolutionary new trad climbing shoe from SCARPA that offers stability for standing on small edges and yet has enough flex for smearing.

The Brand New Scarpa Maestro and Maestro Mid

The secret of the shoe lies in its refined layers of technology. Starting with an intricately-stitched 3-panel suede upper with air holes for long-term wear and comfort. A full-length Janus 1.1mm Talyn insert and IPC-Tension active randing system gives integral support to the foot while under pressure on small holds and maintains flex for smearing.

The Maestro at home on a Multi-Pitch

Built on a master-crafted FY last, the shoe has a straight and slightly downturned shape with a medium-to-low angled toe box. The adaptable toe box design can be fitted to suit either a knuckled up or extended toe position, providing superior toe power or comfort dependant on fit.

The Maestro is designed for multi-pitch and big wall climbing. The shoe sits on a 4mm Vibram XS Edge full-length sole unit combined with 2mm XS Grip 2 heel underlay.

Building upon the core features of the low shoe, the Maestro Mid’s higher leather upper guards the foot from abrasion and offers extra lateral stability, perfect for those looking for extra protection in trad and crack climbing. All wrapped in some classic styling.

This combination of high tech materials and decades of experience has produced the Scarpa Maestro; a shoe that excels in the vertical world.
