The Veloce is Scarpa's first indoor-specific climbing shoe, and no that doesn't mean it will catch fire if it touches rock. It's an all-new, category-defining option for climbers who focus on training, plastic pulling, and who simply go to the gym more often than they climb rock. There are two defining characteristics that make the Veloce gym-specific. First, the toe box is roomier than most downturned shoes to add comfort when you're chilling in between climbs, so you don't have to take them on and off in the gym. Second, Scarpa's own S-72 rubber grants the sole greater durability than most rubber soles. This ultra-durability is essential for gym climbers, unless you like randing your shoes every season.
