The new Quantic was designed for climbers who are looking for a comfortable shoe that performs across a wide spectrum of climbing disciplines. The slightly downturned shape with a medium-to-high angled toe box is paired with flexan insert plus HT-Tension™ to create a shoe that is extremely versatile. The Quantic combines a soft adaptable upper with a full-length outsole providing a solid platform for excellent edging ability. At home in either the gym or on rock, the Quantic is a perfect choice for climbers that demand a shoe for all modern climbing disciplines and classic multi pitch routes as well. The Men's model shares all of the features of the Women's version but with a slightly more generous fit. The Quantic is surprisingly comfortable for a performance climbing shoe!

To be clear, the Quantic is certainly a cut above more than half of the climbing shoes on the market, and I’d take it over most other brands. It’s just not my favorite of Scarpa’s sterling lineup of climbing shoes. I found the Quantic to be a bit too stiff for my taste, which led to a lengthy break-in period. The thick straps made the shoe feel just a bit too clunky. And it feels as if the shoe is lacking some of the more aggressive tensioning other Scarpa shoes have, which delivers the brand’s key suction-cup fit, especially around the arch of my foot. There was too much dead space around my foot.
