Long, technical trails leading to climbing walls call for the Scarpa Men's Vitamin Approach Shoe. The suede upper resists abrasion while the Cocona lining dries quickly, breathes, and naturally resists odor for long-lasting comfort. The dual-density PU midsole absorbs shock better than most EVA midsoles, and Vibram's Vertical Approach sole provides the traction you need to scramble slippery stones confidently.
Inspired by feedback from longtime guides in the Dolomites, the Vitamin is the shoe to reach for when you need a single pair of footwear for a long approach followed by a technical climb and descent. The package starts with a polyurethane midsole, which is more shock-absorbing than EVA, the dual-density PU midsole puts softer materials in ideal locations for walking and firmer material elsewhere for climbing. The Vitamin then employs SCARPA's exclusive VibramA(R) Vertical Approach sole, which climbs more effectively and provides better traction for loose descents. Other details include suede construction, which molds to the foot, asymmetric lacing down to the toe for excellent fit and control and a durable, stretch material in the ankle collar for comfort. Features: a Cocona fabric lining helps to manage moisture and odor control a Full perimeter rubber gives protection and grip
Ideal for approaches and scrambles, the Scarpa Vitamin approach shoe is also suitable for a short walk to the pub. The dual density PU midsole is more shock resistant than EVA foam, and the Vibram Vertical Approach sole is very grippy for steep ascents and descents. -- Cocona(R) natural odor-reducung liner-- Full perimeter rubber rand-- Micro-Pulley lacing system-- dual-density PU midsole-- Vibram(R) Vertical Approach sole
