A fast hiking boot based around our Genesis chassis. Perfect for dynamic walking on lightweight terrain where the user enjoys shoe like comfort, with the added cuff protection and weatherproofing through the GTX lining.
Underfoot the Genesis Vibram unit gives exceptional grip in all directions using Vibram Megagrip and great protection through its inbuilt EVA stone plate. Supplied with dual lace options for a bright pop or understated option.
Scarpa's Nitro Hike GTX are impressively lightweight, creating a great shoe for everyday hiking. Scarpa have still included a Gore-Tex lining to give you reliable waterproofing and also Vibram Genesis soles which provide great levels of grip on varied surfaces so you can be confident when heading out on varied terrain.
These boots are best suited to less technical terrain but with the Gore-Tex and Vibram involved they are still very impressive. These are my comfortable walking boots for easy days in the hills and with the soft upper and light weight they are great to throw on when taking the dog out or heading out in poor weather. Ideal for going fast and light but they won't necessarily provide enough support for hiking with full packs or heading into technical mountainous terrain.
