Scarpa Women's Gecko Approach Shoe with Vibram's reliable Reptilla rubber gives a good grip on technical moves. The Italian suede upper reduces break-in time, without sacrificing the longevity of the shoe. The midsole, features dual density cushion without sacrificing that ultra-stable feel. The low heel drop, straight last and relatively wide platform provides great stability even on the most angled slabs and the to-the-toe climbing shoe lacing pattern firmly plants the forefoot. The soft suede upper breaks in fast without breaking down over time, and the recycled polyester lining works with the upper's mesh panels to keep your foot comfortable in warmer temperatures. There's also a rubber toe cap for rock protection, and a dual-density EVA midsole provides plenty of cush for long approaches.
