All that and More
(Disclaimer: My PR agency, Verde PR & Consulting, represents SCARPA)
I want to share my experience with these shoes, as they are so high quality and versatile, a combination that's tough to nail. The craftsmanship of these shoes is highly evident and the sole/rand combination do combine to make this shoe a true approach shoe. These shoes also carry just the perfect amount of stiffness as well, for scrambling or even climbing very low-angle stuff. They have enough structure and support built in to carry a pack too. I have to wear custom insoles, and I was happy to realize that I could swap those into these shoes and still have a great fit and not have the addition of the insoles negatively affect the performance of these shoes. I've worn them for long hikes of 14ers and they work exceptionally well, and I've also worn them to set up top ropes. I also have to note that they are truly versatile even with all of this performance (I would not wear them trail running, but for hiking, they are fine). I don't have a particularly narrow or wide foot, and they fit very well.
