Origin

rated 5 of 5 stars Fantastic beginner shoe for anyone looking to get started. Fit tapers a little from a slightly narrowed heel to a medium-wide toebox. These were my first pair of shoes I bought. I normally wear 12-12.5 and got a size 46, I found this too tight so I also got a pair size 47 and used those until my feet got conditioned and then I went back to size 46. What can I say about this shoe? They've stuck with me since the beginning and I've gone from climbing 5.9 to 5.11 in about nine months. They're good… Full review

Force V

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A perfect step up from the Origin for those looking to increase their performance without getting aggressive. The fit tapers from a narrowed heel to a medium-wide toebox. Preface: I'm mainly a gym climber, though I occasionally go outdoors. For rating reference I climb at Stronghold in Los Angeles. For about six months I climbed mainly using Scarpa Origins. I wanted to get a nicer pair of shoes to see what the fuss was about, and so I tried a pair of LS Miura Velcros for a while, but found them… Full review

Mustang GTX

rated 5 of 5 stars Had these boots for five years of constant wear and they are the best boots I have ever owned. Very comfortable straight out the box and took about 2x 5-8km to nicely break in. They are lighter than the average boot but also have been very rigid and supportive on longer hikes I have done. I've done about 8 hikes in these guys now and they still remain waterproof. I also took them backpacking for 6 months and they held up beautifully. Never had a problem with blisters, I always wear good socks when… Full review

Zodiac Tech GTX

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Scarpa Zodiac Tech is a near perfect light mountain boot. Great sticky Vibram sole and a perfect fit makes for all day comfort. I’d love to see a toe welt added and the colour possibly tweaked a little. This boot would be best for glacial travel, light scrambling, non-technical peaks as well as winter hiking (both with traction devices or snowshoes). Opening Rant I’m not sure what category these boots fit in. And I don’t say that as a negative, as you can see from the star rating and (if… Full review

ZG 65 XCR

rated 2 of 5 stars Disappointing, poor design/construction quality. I bought these in 2012 to do the Overland Track in Tasmania, Australia, but after using them on only two hikes I found they leaked in shallow water. Not a good omen for the notoriously wet and muddy Overland Track so I bought another brand of boots (Aku) for that walk. The boots did not need breaking in, but I found the innersoles too thin (not an uncommon problem) and replaced them with thicker aftermarket soles.  Now I have done over 1000 km,… Full review
