Scarpa Green Men's Athletic Shoes
A bombshell success for us, the crux climbs, hikes, and spares some cash too. Walking up to do a route like eldorado canyon's classic, rewritten (5.7), we rely on the solid foundation of the Vibram vertical approach sticky sole, with engineered eva for comfort and support. Once on route, the climbing zone under the toes keeps us relaxed and happy. Lace webbing on the natural suede upper retains its shape and the to-the-toe lacing lets us customize the fit while on the move. At such a competitive price, it's hard to believe you get a shoe this ready to charge.
A high, asymmetric curvature creates an ideal shape and fit for climbing and bouldering.
Consider the iguana a secret weapon for long, difficult routes. Lightweight and collapsible, you can hang these from the back of your harness or stash 'em in your climbing pack, no problem. The eva midsole still gives you a plush ride on the descent. We use a zonal weave upper, with different construction zones for breathability and light weight support. Long routes in red rocks or descending into the black? consider the iguana.
A hybrid-style shoe that delivers the feel of a running shoe but can still hang when it comes time to shoulder a big pack or scramble the summit block, the Rapid is our lightest, most flexible trail shoe.
A seasoned favorite. The vapor v bridges the transition from flat lasted to the more downturned part of our line; providing advancing climbers a versatile tool to float up steeper terrain with confidence. The comfort and fit experienced as part of the actively randed flat collection is apparent here, but now applied to a gently curving profile, finished in Vibram xs edge rubber. This is complimented by increased asymmetry, which helps the climber progress and foot holds and terrain become steeper and more demanding.
