The low-cut Scarpa Lite Ascent is likely the most technical of all the light approach shoes we carry at Backcountry.com. Cloaked in the suede upper of a casual walking shoe, the Lite Ascents also serve dutifully for light hikes, bouldering, and easy climbs. It is true active-leisure footwear designed for a broad range of mountain enthusiast. With similar technical construction as a stiff climbing boot, the Lite Ascents excel at scrambling on rocky terrain, smearing on slopers, and edging on small protrusions. Lite Ascents afford awesome lateral stability, and a healthy surface area on the Vibram sole ensures superb contact and grip with rock. Though they're fitted for performance, there's a high toe box to give your toes a bit of wiggle room for more comfortable, controlled descents.
