This versatile shoe laces to the toe for a secure fit while scrambling, smearing, or gearing up for a hike.

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.

    Size: 45.5 EU/11 2/3 M USColor: Shark/Green Verified Purchase
    Nice Grade V approach/ fast hike /or trail running shoe. I've had these for 2 months and have cycled these into my gear ensemble for about 30 trips. My usual trip is 6 to 10 miles per outing maybe twice a day. The Scarpas pound mostly trails, with scree, talus, limestone and granite. Got dumped on by a couple of T storms the Scarpas got soaked. So far no separation of components. Superior for walk off decents. Good value through Amazon Prime $81.82.

    Pros

    Lacing system allows for a range of adjustment according to terrain

    Very comfy

    Solid toe cap good protection

    Fit true to size

    Light weight

    Zero break in

    VERY GRIPPY sole, yes these soles will smear, and make good purchase when wet.

    Sole built for edging

    Tread pattern self cleans or does not accumulate mud

    Air drys fairly quick

    Solid durable build

    You might want to go outside and have fun

    Cons

    Laces don't seem to hold as well as when the were new, maybe they have accumulated embedded dirt and sweat. This is not uncommon, Nylon on Nylon tends to slip.

    No claims of being water proof, No GTX version. No drain holes

    Sticky soles are noisy/tacky on indoor surfaces. Save for outdoors

    A note to all new Scarpa buyers; Scarpa generally offers TWO half sizes in between each U.S. whole size. For example, they offer the 45 AND the 45.5 You could say that they are actually 11.33 and 11.66, respectively, and both are technically in between 11 and 12 U.S sizing. Try them on to be sure. I had to return the size 45's and go for the 45.5, but that is what worked for me. The shoe itself is great so far. Sturdy and comfortable. I plan to buy another pair if they hold up well in the long run.

    I've started rock scrambling about 2 years ago, as I live only about 15 minutes away from Red Rocks, NV, one of the best climbing spots in the United States. So far I just scramble, but am getting into more technical stuff.
    I had been using various running shoes, but wanted to upgrade. The difference is wonderful. The good: 1: The rubber is very sticky 2: The laces go almost to the toe, allowing a great fit on my wide feet. 3: The heel has a tread pattern that grips well when going down hill on loose gravel. 4: The toe is smooth, and allows for improved edging.
    The only downside is there isn't much padding in the forefoot. That's the trade off for the improved climbing capability. I have no trouble with it, but I only have to hike 6 to 8 miles round trip to my climbing spots.
    I have worked the shoes hard over the last few days, and they look rock solid.
    All in all, I'm glad I bought these, and am having much fun on my scrambles/climbs

    I bought these to replace a pair of 3 year old Scarpa Crux shoes (a previous green model) because I loved them so much! I used them on rough climbing approaches every weekend for 3 years, that's over 150 climbs. And finally the soles are too thin now and holes are appearing in the uppers. Here is why I Loved them: They are super light weight. They are super durable, they feel like you're wearing pillows from the first day you wear them to the last, and the best reason, they smear unbelievably and grip like my sportiva climbing shoes on any rock. My only complaint is that they were weak on edging because the soles had a severe edge bevel design that lacked support. But now I have the new Crux's and they edge way better because they altered the design and they are still exceptional in all other categories. These are hands down the best approach shoes I have ever owned.

    I needed an alternative to my heavy hiking boots for light trail use. These shoes are the answer! They're much more breathable than hiking boots and can be worn all day with comfort. The laces extend down the toes for extra adjustability. The treat is super grippy on rocks and other surfaces. I am very happy with these shoes.

    This is my second pair, and it looks like they've upgraded since my last pair. I wear them all day every day, mostly for city walking and biking, but they are my go-to for hiking as well. I've used them as an approach shoe a handful of times and they do the trick there too - very sticky soles, really solid support. I love these shoes. I don't see why I'd buy anything else. Ever.

    To be fair, its just a pretty good snugly fitted shoe with a Vibram sole. Slightly heavier than I would like, I would prefer it to be lighter for bouldering. Once it gets wet, its like wearing bricks on your feet. The suede makes it difficult to maintain somewhat.

    these shoes are super comfy. the soles are grippy and functional for bouldery approaches. the style is nice enough if "dressing up" means more than workbooks or flip flops. the one downside is the leather at the lace hole punch - after minimal wear, the laces at one of the holes has begun to pull through. it has not ripped all the way, but once it does, the shoes become less functional. this is a bummer considering the rest of the shoe is great.
