Nothing between you and the rock but – stick! The Furia provides more sensitivity than any shoe we've ever produced. Without a midsole between you and the Vibram® XS Grip2 rubber, you feel every feature and can activate every nerve and muscle in your foot. A new, patent pending Active Randing construction featuring the Power-Connection-Band structurally links the toe box and heel pocket, letting you commit the strength of your whole foot to micro-edges and imperceptible smears. Glove fit, hypersensitive, SCARPA performance. A new standard.

Overall, the Scarpa Furia is a welcomed addition to Scarpa’s long line of technical climbing shoes. Its sensitive nature makes it a top choice for technical bouldering, climbing overhanging terrain and especially when climbing indoors. Although the Furia does well when edging despite the lack of a mid-sole, we would not recommend this shoe for vertical or slightly vertical climbing. Although we would recommend this shoe for the advanced climber as an addition to your climbing shoe inventory, we also checked in with a number of beginner climbers who found this shoe very accommodating when initially learning how to rock climb indoors.
The Furia is the second softest shoe I’ve ever worn after the Five Ten Team XVi, and it’s my most favorite slipper from Scarpa to date. I credit the Team XVi for turning me on to the benefit of extremely soft climbing shoes, which allow you to use your toes in ways that are simply not possible in traditional climbing shoes. I laughed when I first picked up the Team XVi and saw that there wasn’t much more to it than a piece of sticky rubber and a sock-thin lining. But after giving it a genuine test, I was soon singing a different tune when I realized how much more security I felt on shallow, precise pockets, slippery smears, and even edges.
The Furia is a specialized shoe that finds its niche in performing hard moves whether they’re on a boulder problem, a sport route, or in the gym. Because of the minimal support, the Furia isn’t the ideal shoe for all-day multi-pitch routes or groveling up chimneys and splitter cracks. It’s best suited to steep rock and feature climbing that involves toe hooks, heel hooks, smearing, and using your feet like another pair of hands.
It's black and lime coloured, it looks good, but it will be hot cos it's black. Keep it out of the sun. Remember temps in cars can be over 50°, don't leave this shoe under sun in the car! My view is this is a great shoe, I tried the prototype, and it was maybe too soft for normal non competition people, this newer version is brill for steep limestone, particularly where you still use the toe, and outside edge. Give it a look, why don't ya?
The SCARPA Furia is a well-constructed shoe that manages to be both sensitive and powerful. And given that combination, the Furia makes for a great all-around shoe for bouldering or hard sport climbing. It could also serve as a nice addition to a quiver of more ‘specific’ shoes, as it will become for me.
Putting them on the first time, I thought I got these too big, but that seems to be a common trend for me with the latest Scarpa shoes. They are so soft, there isn’t much pressure on your foot when you cinch them down tight. Don’t be fooled though, as soon as you start climbing in them, you’ll feel the power afforded by the Active Randing system.
“World-class, mega-dank! Thanks to perfectly soft edges, Ryan Gosling in ‘The Notebook’ sensitivity, and a delightfully comfortable fit,” one tester said. So comfortable that he wore them on the 13-pitch Yankee Clipper (5.10b) in El Potrero Chico, Mexico, and was still grinning and singing after a full day of edging on micro-nubs. The same tester onsighted three 5.12s in the Furia at crags around Chattanooga, Tennessee, choosing them because of their versatility and performance on verticals, steeps, pockets, smedging, edges, slopers, and everything in between. The baby-fuzz softness comes from having no midsole, which famed shoe designer Heinz Mariacher removed to increase sensitivity and that supple feel. The midsole is also responsible for helping keep the aggressively downturned shape of a shoe, so instead Mariacher used a piece of tensioned rubber that runs from the ball of the foot to the front of the heel, called the PCB-Tension System (Power Connection Band). This piece of tensioned rubber (it’s stretched before being applied to the shoe) helps you transfer power directly into the toe. This means that your entire foot is working to help you edge on a dime, instead of just your toes. As the softest shoe in Scarpa’s line, the Furia is a versatile and surprisingly comfortable high-end rock shoe.
