Your favorite trail feels as smooth as butter when you wear the Scarpa Women’s Epic Hiking Shoe for your next hike or trail run. A dual-density molded EVA midsole smooths out the impact in your forefoot and heel while the Trail Plate flexes just enough for comfortable, safe strides over uneven terrain. You may not think of it as you meander through the aspens, but the Epic’s recycled materials help you preserve the environment you love to play in. You will, however, think about the Trail-Speed outsole as you glide over mud and rocks without a worry in the world.

Good all around hiking shoe

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:True to size

I've used this shoe for backpacking and day hikes, and it's very comfortable and light. My only complaint is that they were really tight in the toe area, but loosened up after a few uses. Definitely recommend.

Awesome hiking shoes

    I love these shoes. They fit my narrow feet perfectly. The laces go down a long ways so it make it easy to adjust them to the perfect fit. They hold my foot securely so rough trails are never a problem. They are light weight so you're not lugging a heavy pair of boots up a mountain.

    Nice shoe but not for my feet

      These were my 4th try on the perfect hiking shoe and unfortunately they were a fail for me. I think this would have been a great shoe, especially for my narrow feet, but I also have extremely narrow/bony heels and these shoes just rubbed my feet the wrong way. I had horrible blisters on my heels after both of the two short hikes I wore the shoes on (with the second one I tried heel inserts, they didn't help). Otherwise these were just what I was looking for in a hiking shoe, it's unfortunate I had to return them. The search continues.....

      Would this shoe be good in rainy weather?...

      Would this shoe be good in rainy weather? I am going to travel to Peru and I am looking for shoes that are not too bulky and heavy but since I am going in the rainy season I am hoping to find water proof also.

      If you know you will be traveling in a wet climate I would recommend a Gore-Tex shoe. A shoe with a Gore-Tex membrane (or another similar membrane) will be both waterproof and breathable, and keep you feet dry and comfortable in most conditions.



      Some examples: the Lowa S-Crown GTX, the Patagonia Footwear Drifter A/C GTX, or the The North Face Ultra 50 GTX XCR.

      Hi Cassie -



      Funny - I've been attempting to same, and have talked at length with Scarpa USA on the topic. They told me the Epic is somewhat close, but has a narrower toe box (and the Nitro was on the roomier side - something I needed). Width-wise, they recommended the Scarpa Moraine, available in both Gore-tex and non-Gore-tex versions (the non Gore-tex has been discontinued). The Nitro was unique in that it was a fairly robust, made-in-Italy, stiff, low-cut trail shoe that was a little wider than standard Scarpa models. Since then, the trend has skewed toward minimalist shoes that sacrifice a bit of durability and support to shed weight. Another shoe that comes close in spec looks to be the Zamberlan Crosser. A bit pricey, and Gore-tex only, but this may be the direction I'm headed, given my experience with Zamberlan having a wider toe box. Best of luck in your search!

      Hello! I am trying to get accurate shoe sizing for the Scarpa Epic women's shoe. I am a US size 8. I tried on the 38.5 but they were too small (said US size 7 1/3!). Should I do 39 or 39.5? Thanks!
