The Veloce from Scarpa is built with comfort mind and is designed primarily for use on longer routes. The tightness of the shoe can be adjusted using velco straps and the accommodating shape should fit all but the most abnormal of feet. They can cope with most levels of difficulty except extremely technical routes.

Scarpa Veloce Reviews
Reviewed by Adam (London) on 2005-12-30:
General comments: The Scarpa Veloce are very lightweight, flexible and durable.
Pros: The best climbing boots i have ever owned. I've never had any problems with them rubbing unlike previous pairs of boots. Also, I can feel everything underneath my feet when climbing in these Scarpas unlike other pairs where I have felt distanced from the rock.
Cons: They make your feet go green which is really hard to get off!

General comments: As someone gets through rock boots very frequently i decided to try out the Scarpa Veloce, while in the market for some new shoes before heading to Font last easter (2005).
To start with i was very impressed with the fit and feel of the shoes as they were very supportive on any style of climbing. But as time went on the shoes stretched far too much and my foot started to roll around inside the shoe and its support disappeared completely.
These have been the only shoes that i have stopped using before they had been worn out.
Cons: They stretched far too much.
Colour you feet green, if they get wet.

General comments: I bought a pair in my usual climbing shoe size, wore them for half an hour and they had strtched massively. So, took them back and went a size down. Despite hours of use and frenzied efforts with the rubbing bar, this pair has never given more than a couple of mm.
Aside from me being stuck with a pair of shoes that are too small, my other gripes are a) stickiness - this new scarpa rubber compound doesnt seem anywhere near as sticky as the old stuff; and b) the rand at the front kind of swoops up to protect the knuckle of the big toe, but it doesnt go quite high enough and stops on the knuckle. This can be quite painful.
As a positive, I like the ease to put on/ take off - indoors this makes up for the discomfort on the toe a bit - and all my climbing mates reckon they look cool.
Overall, wouldn't recommend 'em.
Pros: Funky colour, easy to get on/off and well-padded tongue
Cons: Fit, low randing on the toe, stickiness
