Scarpa's Epic Lite shoes are designed for light hiking. They are waterproof, have flexible soles which provide a lot of grip and are strong and sturdy making them ideal for rugged terrain.
Our first low cut model using OutDry, makes an exciting prospect. It's waterproof upper is sure to remain lightweight even in the dampest environments. The new Etilas sole package gives robust protection and support for rugged approach and trail paths.
Built for moving fast over variable alpine terrain, the Epic Lite provides supportive, do-it-all trail performance in a lightweight breathable construction ideal for streamlined warm weather missions.
Scarpa's Epic Lite provide instant comfort with flexible Vibram soles and light waterproof uppers. The added flexibility in the sole does not reduce the level of grip provided but does increase comfort on longer hikes. The waterproof and breathable upper make these shoes particularly comfortable in warmer conditions.
The Epic Lite's strong toe bumper and reinforced heel provide added durability and this inspires confidence on more tricky terrain like scrambles, but these are still light hiking boots rather than full approach shoes so keep that in mind before attempting more full on routes. Overall, these shoes perform really well across changeable terrain.
