The Scarpa Fuego Boot is a leather mountaineering boot built for hard, tough work. Wildland fire workers, rejoice. Built without a rubber rand, it won't have a melt-down while you're focusing on the job. The High collar protects and supports the ankle and the lacing can be adjusted to suit your comfort level. Pile on the gear, strap the boots on your feet and get into the mountains to protect. Features of the Scarpa Fuego Boot Classically-styled mountain boot Gusseted, double tongue offers complete protection Durable rough-out leather Uppers Vibram M4 Tech sole has aggressive tread and excellent cushioning Ideal construction with tall cuff for foresters and wild land firefighters
If the BLM's fire teams can carry their massively heavy packs to wherever the fire's blazing on the mountain for hours of hard work over flaming terrain with the Scarpa Men's Fuego Boot, then you can certainly wear it wherever you go backpacking this summer. Scarpa suited the Fuego specifically for Wildland fire crews, with a one-piece, Italian Crosta leather that's waxed for long-lasting durability. By leaving out a rubber rand, Scarpa made sure the fire crews wouldn't have to deal with rubber melting off the boot. The higher cuff provides proper support when you're hauling a heavy load, and there's a footbed and EVA midsole for underfoot comfort. The Vibram M4 Tech sole ensures the stability you need to cover miles on miles.
A no-nonsense boot without any of the unnecessary bells or whistles that's willing to go anywhere that you can get to.
