Quantic Men


My vote: None ( 5.4 avg )


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!

Awesome All-Rounder!

easy on-off
short break-in
surprising heel-hook, damn good edging
that distinct Scarpa shoe-fart "thhmmmmp" sound it makes when your heel sets in
comical albeit typical Scarpa downsizing
clunky velcro straps
I’ve used it a ton





REI Co-Op members really dragged this shoe down and I think it has a very undeserving reputation.  I picked these up on clearance because I wanted a less aggressive all-rounder for the gym so I don't wear out my more specialized shoes.  They don't disappoint in the slightest for my needs.  I've spent the last 2 weeks climbing 3-4x a week for 2-3hr sessions solely in these shoes doing Moonboard, steep overhang boulders, auto-belay top ropes and lead routes.  While they don't particularly excel at anything, they do surprise at nearly everything.  Heel hooks especially! That flimsy cheap molded texturized rubber in the heel cup is doing a lot of work.  The velcro straps are kinda clunky for an otherwise very lightweight shoe.  These are my first pair of Scarpas in 10+ years and that distinct "thmmmp" sound of the air rushing out as your heel sets in always puts a smile on my face.  I had Vapor laces that did the same thing.  For $110 at REI, they are absolutely worth checking out now!






Evening Sends Gear Review no rating given just a review

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.
