Perfect for hiking!
Kailash GTX Review:
Very comfortable and durable. Great for rocky soil.
"SCARPA ADDICTED after one purchase" shame on you!
SL Activ Review:
I first put on these boots, I was completely amazed on how comfortable they felt. I never knew a boot can feel like that. I have trouble with heel Spurs, that's why I always invest in good foot wear. I use them for work, they are perfect for being on your feet all day. The only thing about these boots I hate is, that I am so spoiled. I don't think I can purchase any other boots but these. They cost a pretty penny, but worth it. I can complain too much, had gotten a great deal from Onlineshoe. THANKS.
the most comfy shoes!
Moraine GTX Review:
These are the most comfy brand I've ever worn. Roomy toe box area, but still snugs my heel so they don't rub and cause blisters. This is my first pair of Scarpa boots, but I'm on my 6th pair of the Scarpa trail runners, the Rapid LT. They're so comfy, I wear them for both rocky and flat trails. But I don't run :) I wish the shoelaces were 3-6" longer so I could double knot them, but otherwise an amazing shoe!
So cute!
Margarita Review:
I love Stylish sneakers that are comcortable and give good support. This brand is new to me and I love their look. They are very comfortable: lightweight and a nice, large toebox. I have a bunion and this shoe accommodates it nicely. Highly recommend. I ordered the size 40. I am generally an 8 1/2 wide but I like to wear tie shoes slightly larger. This allows me to wear heavier weight socks. The blue color is so fun..I will order another style in a fun color...
Cute shoes for new Mommy
Margarita Review:
This shoe is very cute and comfortable, and the blue is exactly as pictured. I needed a replacement casual shoe that is more practical when out and about with my new baby. I normally wear a 9, and found the EU 9 very large. I exchanged them for an 8.5 (also had a 8.5-9, but were out.). I guess that means I went about a full size down. The toe area is wider than most casual style sneakers I have had in the past, but they were roomy in the toe area and very comfortable. The exchange was quick, pleasant, and easy. Great company!

About SCARPA

SCARPA was founded in Asolo, located in the Montebelluna region of Italy, an area long known for its high-quality, handcrafted footwear. SCARPA's mission was to bring together all the best shoemakers in the area in order to manufacture the best footwear. The name "SCARPA" stands for "Società Calzaturiera Asolana Riunita Pedemontana Anonima," which translates to the "Associated Shoe Manufacturing Company of the Asolo Mountain Area."

It was immersed in this tradition of craftsmanship and heritage that Luigi Parisotto, who would eventually purchase the company with his brothers and grow it into a family enterprise, first began learning the art of making fine footwear in Italy's Asolo area. Parisotto began learning his craft at age 11 in 1940 and went to work for SCARPA in 1942. From the beginning, Parisotto loved the process of building handcrafted footwear, and in the early 1950s, he operated his own shoe-manufacturing business with his brothers, producing between four and 15 pairs of handmade shoes per day. These were sold to local farmers who sought out shoes that were both comfortable and indestructible.

The brothers moved on to SCARPA, and the business quickly grew under their leadership. The SCARPA company was among the first to recognize the needs of northern Italy's rapidly developing mountaineering and climbing culture, and to develop footwear with features dedicated to those pursuits. Those features, along with the brand's legendary durability and fit, led to many of Italy's early mountaineers using SCARPA shoes.

That pioneering spirit has continued at SCARPA, which has many firsts credited to its name, including being the first to build a GORE-TEX® boot, the first to develop a plastic telemark skiing boot, and introduced in 2007, the first telemark- and alpine touring-compatible boot.

Now, the next generation of Parisottos is continuing SCARPA's pursuit of innovative mountain footwear. Sandro, Piero, Davide, Cristina and Andrea Parisotto continue to lead the company to produce the finest footwear for hiking, mountaineering, climbing and skiing.
