Low profile, comfortable shoe that works awesome for hikes in to the local crag and to climb in.


  • Low profile
  • Comfortable
  • Quick break-in time


  • The rubber on the toe of the shoe appears to be separating

I have worn the Scarpa Crux approach shoes on a climbing trip through Wyoming as well as a spring's worth of trips to my local crags in Arkansas. So far, I have been very impressed with the shoe.

Quick break-in time, low profile shoe that is nice so that I am less likely to roll my ankles. I get a great sense of feel of the ground beneath my feet and climbing in the shoes is awesome. I climbed as well in the Crux as some of my mates did in their actual climbing shoes.

I would highly recommend this shoe, although I have noticed the rubber to separate from the shoe. Right now it is minimal, but I do have a slight cause for concern that it could get worse. Still TBD on that part.
