Every season we’re amazed at how much more we can climb in our approach shoes. Vibram scarpa rubber and to-the-toe lacing give the gecko the precision for fifth-class moves and inspire confidence when you’re cruising an exposed approach. Knowing that the walk-off is sometime the crux, micro-lugs on the sole bite the trail when descending or negotiating dirty sections. The italian suede upper reduces break-in time, without sacrificing the longevity of the shoe. The rubber toe rand wraps over the midsole, improving performance and durability. European quality, climbing shoe performance, scarpa soul.
Innovation and tradition share equally deep roots at SCARPA, a muti-generational, family-owned business whose headquarters and manufacturing facilities are in the same region of northern Italy where it was founded in 1938. SCARPA builds performance footwear for climbing, hiking, skiing, mountaineering, trail-running and other outdoor pursuits. Aside from being the Italian word for “shoe,” SCARPA is an acronym for Societa Calzaturiera Asolana Riunita Pedemontana Anonima (Associated Shoe Manufacturing Company of the Asolo Mountain Area).
