Sizing notes

Rock Shoes: Scarpa recommends you downsize 1/2 to 2 full sizes from street shoe size, though downsizing depends on shoe model, intended use and personal preference. Mountaineering: Scarpa recommends you upsize 1/2 size or more depending on desired fit. Scarpa plastic mountaineering boots are based on the UK sizing scale. Ski Boots: All Scarpa ski bootsare measured in Mondo sizing.Highlighted (or not) sizes share the same shell size; the liners are lasted for each 1/2 size. Some skiers may want to downsize up to 1 full Mondo size, depending upon personal preference.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Durable and good rubber I tried a number of approach shoes and these were the best combo of arch support (I have fasciitis) and affordability. I tried 2 other and these won the day. I also liked the Salwea a great deal, but their sizing was off a bit for me. I'm a 10 street shoe; the Salewa was too long in 10 and too short in 9.5. The Scarpa euro sizing allowed me to get a near perfect fit. Bomber on approaches and easy climbs. My only critique is that you may need to fiddle with the laces quite a bit to adjust-the stiffness is good, but may constrict a bit toward the front if you don't adjust them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Killer Shoe. Bought these at the end of August this year, and have put them through the wringer in every way i have been able to. When i originally got these shoes i wore them out of the box on the Maroon Bells traverse (about 10 miles with 5000' elevation gain and loss) and they performed amazingly. Great traction out of the box, comfort and surprisingly good ankle support. Killer edging and smearing for those sketchy mid fifth class moves where you really want to be able to trust your feet (esp. without a rope!) Next mission was a 24 mile (6000' gain/loss) 2 day mission: day one- 9 mile backpack in to Snowmass Lake day 2- Snowmass ascent and 9 mile backpack out for a climb of Snowmass Mountain. On the hike in i felt more of the break in that was needed for the shoes than when on the Bells, they really started to conform to my feet and mold the sole (probably because of the 60 lb. packs we had on). The next day i had unparalleled traction for all of the scrambling we needed to do. On the way down Snowmass and during the backpack out my feet started to get sore and i got some mild blisters on top of my toes from toe jam but that was just the completion of the break in for these shoes. Since these two missions i have put probably another 75 miles on the shoes with a load of 3rd/4th/5th class and have nothing but great things to say. Even took these up Maroon Peak again in October in a foot of snow, and with gaiters on i never even had my feet get wet through the shoe! Not waterproof but definitely very water resistant, and surprisingly warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like going barefoot I bought these about a month ago after trying two other brands. I've mostly walked around town however would be fine on a trail as well. The sales person gave me the correct size, was amazed how well they fit the first time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'll buy these until they stop making them I use these on rugged rock, as they're intended. I completely wore out one pair after about two years of use. Most of my outdoor sessions with these shoes involve extensive desert off trail and free-soloing mini-mountaineering routes on 4th to low 5th class. They did 70 miles of off trail canyoneering/mountaineering in Canyonlands with a heavy pack as part of two packrafting circuits. I just gave my original pair their final voyage on a roped solo six-pitch first ascent of grade III 5.9. They are sticky with great edge control, and I appreciate the wider toe box and lack of a painfully overbuilt arch. If you want a burly, high performance mountain and rock shoe, get this one. Don't go for the flimsy crag approach shoes made for a couple miles of trail and slab from the car.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fit perfectly My wife bought these for me while she was on a trip. I use them primarily for disc golf because I live in the Willamette Valley in Oregon and the ground is often wet and muddy. I wanted something versatile and that would keep my feet dry. My wife also bought some sponge-on leather waterproofing at the suggestion of the REI staff and the combination has been outstanding. The sizing sounds odd, but I have the 11 2/3 which is essentially a size in between a U.S. 11.5 and 12. They fit quite well and I would absolutely recommend them if you're on the fence!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Design I've owned 2 pairs of these shoes and each time the sole has come unglued from the upper in both the front and the back. Also, the laces are too short so I had to replace them to get a decent knot. I won't buy another pair of these until these issues are addressed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid shoes So far, excellent, 4 days of hard charging at Red rocks from 4th to low five and 2 hour approaches carrying a double rack heavy pack. Next up, durability in 4 months. So far, thumbs up

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great buy Have this one for a year now, and still doing great. I use it for light hike, and at work. It's surprisingly comfortable. Would buy it again.

for sizing if im a 10 street shoe will i want them in a 9.5 a 10 or 10.5. how should they fit fairly snug or should i get them with a little bit of room. just lookin for some advice.

Asked by: mountainmanoftheeastcoast
These boots should fit snug everywhere and tight nowhere. It is best for most people to have one thumb's width of space between your longest toe and the end of the shoe.
