Scarpa's Marmolada Pro OD come into their own once you get off the beaten path and head into more uneven and technical terrain. With a semi rigid sole with good grip and a decent amount of support around the ankles these boots were designed with the Sock-Fit XT to give them a closer fit and make them more comfortable. This balance of sole stiffness and boot fit mean that you wear a boot that provides precision and comfort that many others do not.
The OutDry waterproof lining works really well and has developed a great reputation in recent times which has gone from strength to strength so although you may not recognise the name you can be confidence in it's ability to keep you dry. The laces of the boot are designed with climbing in mind so they fit well and can be adjusted to suit the terrain making them super comfortable. This is particularly useful on the way in and out of your treks when you're on flatter paths.
