This exciting new model blends a mix of classic Scarpa quality, modern construction processes and technologies, like Sock-Fit & Activ Impact, to create a versatile multisport shoe.
A water resistant suede (1.88mm) upper, is moulded on the MMS last, with a toe and heel rand providing great durability and protection. The uppers benefit from Scarpa’s Sock-Fit technology which enhances comfort, performance and fit adaptability and is lined with GORE-TEX (Extended Comfort Footwear) providing full protection and maximum breathability on the trail. Underfoot, we’ve used Vibram’s Crossover sole, which is made from dual density EVA, to optimise cushioning and stability while the additional TPU heel shank aids with torsional support.
The outsole is a dual compound with Dura-Trek rubber in the heel which provides great resistance to shearing forces and the forefoot has sticky rubber for grip on rock and with additional micro-embossed lugs to promote self-cleaning and enhance traction in varied conditions.
Scarpa's Nitro GTX shoes fit comfortably from the word 'go' and you can feel the support around your foot as you lace them up. However they also feature a vibram sole which gives good traction and long life as well as a rubber toe bumper to further protect your investment. With a Gore-Tex liner for waterproofing the Nitro GTX is an excellent all round hiking shoe.
