The Scarpa Neutron GTX is a waterproof, breathable and comfortable alpine running shoe that features a dual-density EVA midsole with a six-millimeter drop.
A daily driver with the heart of a Ferrari–this is the Neutron GTX. A dual-density EVA midsole with a six-millimeter drop allow you to rack up the miles in comfort. A lugged sole and just enough toe protection give you the freedom to push the pace on rocky, uneven terrain and make it home with happy feet. Breathable mesh and synthetic uppers keep your feet cool in summer, while resisting wear in high-abrasion areas. At just 302g per foot, this is a race-inspired, but training-worthy trail shoe.
Scarpa's Neutron GTX features Vibram outsoles and widely spaced lugs, perfect for grabbing everything from dirt trails to slick rocks. The traction, along with the protective upper is designed to wrap your feet securely for inspired confidence going both uphill and down. It’s a full-volume shoe that might feel too roomy to some, but others will appreciated the breathing room. The smartly designed “lace pocket” lets you tuck in laces to avoid getting tripped up by a snagging branch.
If your aim is to run fast or maintain the same consistent gait you might get on the roads, the Neutron will be right up your alley.
