Scarpa Mystic GTX
I bought these approach shoes for an ascent of Kilimanjaro…
I bought these approach shoes for an ascent of Kilimanjaro or at least the trek up to the last camp on the Machame route when high altitude boots were used.
The Mystic shoe performed brilliantly. I foolishly hadn't worn them very much before the climb and I was worried thay they were not broken in properly. But I had no need to worry. They served me well with gret comfort and not a hint of a blister.
Only heat insulation prevented me wearing them on the final ascent from 4600m.
Approach shoe meets light hiker, the Mystic GTX employs a dual-density EVA midsole for cushioned comfort on top of the unique Spyder sole, a proprietary SCARPA sole built by Vibram that melds all the best features of both types of shoes.
Full suede uppers paired with Gore Tex means this shoe is ultra weather proof. On the trail, scrambling over talus fields, or easy climbing, the Mystic handles it all.
