User Review: Scarpa Men's Zen
Source: bought it new
Highly uncomfortable but durable.
- Poor edging capabilities
I have these shoes for a couple of years now.
I've used them for long approaches in the mountains and easy climbing. I have a high volume foot and they feel very uncomfortable. Tried them with heel pads, thin shock absorbers, different types of socks, different types of lacing. No comfort improvement.
I feel pressure on the toes after walking for a while and then the discomfort only grows. When I scrambled or climbed easy rock sections I discovered they have no precision for edging. I wouldn't call them technical shoes.
Their only plus seems to be durability.
