Innovation and tradition share equally deep roots at SCARPA, a muti-generational, family-owned business whose headquarters and manufacturing facilities are in the same region of northern Italy where it was founded in 1938. SCARPA builds performance footwear for climbing, hiking, skiing, mountaineering, trail-running and other outdoor pursuits. Aside from being the Italian word for "shoe," SCARPA is an acronym for Societa Calzaturiera Asolana Riunita Pedemontana Anonima (Associated Shoe Manufacturing Company of the Asolo Mountain Area).

Besides their great looking, these boots are very well made, looking strong and durable, but at the same time quite soft and comfortable.
Have worked the boots in now, and off to the Milford track in NZ Feb this year. So looking forward to getting them wet dirty and more scuffedPublished 11 months ago by EAMONN MCGUINNESS
