Just returned from four days in the North Cascades, WA., where I put these new boots through the works. I wore them to work for a few weeks prior, but I don’t believe they needed it. From miles of trail approach to more miles of loose granite talus, steep mud, snow, ice, and rock! Ending result: no blisters, no soreness, excellent friction on rock, light, flexible, breathable, waterproof, felt great in crampons, fit well on my narrow feet. They rival the La Sportiva, Trango series. Slightly heavier, but will last longer.
Price Paid: $200
Great comfortable boot. Perfect for 3 season climbing on rock and up to moderate ice.
They weren't warm enough for cold winter climbing. I do a lot of winter climbing in the Rockies and I thought I was going to get frostbite the first time I took them below about 10F.
Price Paid: $350
DO NOT BUY THESE BOOTS. These boots were comfortable right out of the box. Plenty of space in the toe box, not "pinched" from above like equivalent models from Sportiva, etc.
That being said, the first time I wore these (on a relatively moderate trip in the White Mountains in New Hampshire), the rubber "lip" on the upper exterior, above the toe, separated from the flimsy naugahyde surface material, which also developed a tear.
I sent them back to Scarpa for a warranty repair or replacement. Scarpa insisted I had done the damage myself with crampons; no way this is true, I wasn't wearing crampons. Scarpa refused to offer a new pair of boots, instead did a miserable repair job on the separated rubber layers by smearing liberal amounts of shoe-goo on the outside.
Scarpa deserves to be taken to the mat for this sort of half-baked repair work. If they aren't going to replace them, at least have the decency to do a quality repair job. I wouldn't buy these boots again, or anything else from Scarpa until they improve their warranty work.
