Editors' Choice 2020: Scarpa Booster Review

Our picks for the best gear of 2020.


None
The Scarpa Booster climbing shoe. 

When the Booster first came out in 2007, its fierce torque plus balletic precision made it a redpointing beast. The Booster got a big makeover for 2020 with Scarpa’s new PAF heel, which splits the tension rand behind your Achilles, letting you downsize for max precision. (I dropped 1 size from the Booster S.) The resulting “bite” on micros is peerless, and the new heel is a soft, suctiony dream. The Booster has a Flexan midsole and 3.5mm XS Grip 2 outsole, and uses the same Alcantara toebox material as the Furia Air, conforming to this key pressure point over time. MSRP: $189
