A superbly made, lightweight comfortable walking boot, with good support for most hikes and trails and long-distance paths. With 100% waterproofing and excellent traction these make most routes a joy to walk. Thoroughly recommended indeed.
- Superb grip
- Instant comfort
- 100% waterproof
- Excellent lacing system and quite light too
- Boot flexibility can lead to instep splitting after a year or so
I am now well into my second pair of these boots. The first I purchased about three years ago after a friend recommended Scarpa to me. Straight from the box the boots were extremely comfortable with both a snug fitting and very easy lacing system that leads to confidence on the hills.
The leather is soft yet supportive. That coupled with an extremely grippable soul makes one positive about descending mountains in even greasy, slippy conditions underfoot. Both pairs which I have worn have never let water in, even in the boggiest of conditions and days of driving rain.
The only downside is that the boots are of a soft, flexible leather that after a year or so can split across the instep. I feel that this is a small price to pay for the many pluses these provide...John.
