User Review: Scarpa SL
Use: rough trail to off trail w/moderately heavy pack
Break-in Period: two weeks for me, up to a month
Price Paid: $98 sale, $220 retail
These boots are excellent. Very supportive, durable, comfortable, and all around great. The Vibram sole grips like a claw. Good for walking around town to tough off trail work. For me the break-in was brief and easy, I had and have no blisters with these boots. I replaced the cheap insole (like on most boots) with one from SofSole. I have pair of Goretex Vasques which also love, but these are better in condition where these is not as much moisture and gore-tex is not needed. Buy a pair if you can, they are worth it, especially at the price I paid.
