The Return of the Scarpa Stix

2 Aug 2011 15:24

The Scarpa Stix was a well received addition to the Scarpa climbing range a few years ago. A technical slipper it quickly gained fans from some of the UK's leading climbers (Dave MacLeod review on Rock&Run & UKClimbing review) and was a firm favourite in The Climbing Works with customers, staff and the Cheeses (Percy & Sam loved them).

A technical slipper though is a hard sell to the vast majority of climbers and  UK shops so after a few years the Scarpa Stix disappeared from the these shores. This just happened to be at that point where it was starting to get a loyal following.

Well, after a year or so of chatting to Scarpa we've managed to get ourselves a pallet load of Stix for our shop because we think they're one of the best technical shoes around.

These beauties are now back in stock online and instore and a great choice for climbing at The Climbing Works and outdoors. They're stiff enough to stand on very small edges, the addition of XSGrip 2 makes them even stickier when clawing at holds on overhangs and the slipper fit makes it perfect for getting on and off when bouldering. At £85 they're also one of the cheapest high end technical shoe you will find on the market.
