Overall I'm happy with my Scarpas. They're warm, comfy enough, and solid. I feel the liners leave something to be desired. A little more padding under the foot may lead to…

I've been an Asolo fan when it comes to boots, but I can see why Backpacker magazine ranked these boots so high. Very breathable for a Goretex boot, minimal break-in period, f…

First, I love this shoe. No need for other shoes below the snow line if you have good ankle support. The Vibram grip is insane, way more than you are used to with normal hikin…

This is my second pair of Scarpa boots and the Kinesis Pro GTXs, although expensive, are worth every penny. My last pair of Scarpas were 13 years old so it was time to put th…

With some practice you can ea…
