Awesome Trail Shoe

Verified Buyer Reviewed by the fargoan from Montana on Wednesday, October 7, 2015
For me, the fit and comfort of this shoe is amazing. And they look terrific! I wear a 42.5 in other Scarpa footwear and a size 42.5 of this shoe fit me perfectly as well. I also tried a size 42 and it was just a tad too short, not allowing enough room in the toe box. First time out of the box I wore these on a rugged 10 mile out-and-back hike with 3,300 ft. of elevation gain and loss with a 25 lbs pack on. I experienced no problems with these shoes. I'm very impressed with amount of lateral support and underfoot protection these shoes provide, regardless of their lightweight. One feature that really stands out, and its probably my feature because it surpasses anything else I've experienced in the this footwear category, is the amount of grip the shoe provides on the trail...and I mean loose scree on steep mountain terrain that typically causes other footwear to loose their grip. These shoes provide so much security, grip and stability while descending loose scree filled trails. It actually becomes a fun game as to how hard can I push this shoe before it looses traction. I highly recommend this shoe. I think I'm going to order another pair since I'll be using this shoe for so many things; running and day hiking and also for lightweight overnight backpacking when my summer mountaineering boots are overkill for the trip.
