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).
They are advertised as all being wide width. They are not marked wide width. They are the right length. I would have loved them otherwise.
I first used this brand of hiking boots for hiking in Peru in 2012 during rainy season. I then bought another pair for my recent trip to Iceland during the cold and icy season. Very comfortable for long hikes, kept me dry and warm, and good grip for the outdoor conditions that I was in both times.
no blisters even after walking the Camino de Santiago - 31 days ~500+miles
This is awesome. Works perfectly the first time I wear it. I love them and definitely would recommend to friends if they need a pair of hiking shoes.
