Scarpa's new Boostic (available since March 2012) is designed to bring together elements from four other shoes in the range - the Stix, Booster, Mago, Rockette - and make the most of all their best features. Apparently it has the toe power of these top end boots combined with a one-piece full-length sole to add additional power. The rubber is Vibram XS Edge and it has some extra sticky pieces over the toe for delicate toe hooking.
