Description

If you can handle it, so can this boot.

The Scarpa Men's Kailash GTX Hiking Boot provides the durability of a suede upper and the waterproof breathable performance of Gore-Tex. A Vibram Hi-Trail Lite sole creates all the traction you need for anything from scree to dirt to mud, and it lasts for years and years of trail time. Scarpa added a protective rubber toe cap to this midweight boot, so you don't go wearing it out before its time. The Kailash GTX Hiking Boot supports your ankles well enough for a weeklong trip yet remains light enough for day hikes.

Just off the trail and enjoying the boots.

  • Fit: True to size

I'm looking for a light weight hiker and because of the sale price, I took a gamble to see if the Kailash would fit. Bottom line: not recommended for low vol narrow feet as advertised the Scarpa BX last is for normal feet; too wide for my feet. The Scarpa BD last, with pulley-lock lace is almost perfect, e.g., Scarpa Zanskar. Still looking for a light weight summer hiker?..

Magnetic Pillows

  • Fit: True to size

I did my research on these prior to buying for my vacation to Yosemite this December. From the reviews on here I read endless reports of no blisters and out of the box comfort which from my use has been proven absolutely true. So far they have been to Yosemite, Kings Canyon, Sequoia and Zion National Park as well as up to Desolation Lake here in Utah. These boots have been absolutely awesome right out of the box and their vibram soles stick to everything. Granite, sandstone, scree, ice, wet trees you name it and they remain dry and waterproof while crossing streams or running through powder for 4 hrs.

The reviews on backcountry made me confident in my purchase as well as reading the review of the boots done by gear scout for military times. So far I am completely sold on the boots and have possibly convinced my dad to scrap his tread less Keens klogs for these.

As far as sizing goes, I wear a 10.5 with a normal arch so I chose the 44.5 since I wear smartwool hikers, they fit perfect and give me just a little bit of extra space in the toe box that helps.

hope this review helps you make the right choice for footwear.

I am a 10.5 as well, but I heard that for hiking boots you have to get a half size bigger in our case a 11. Did you toes touch the front wall of the boot? Was that the case for you?

Great Temperate Boot

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

These boots are waterproof, insulated, rugged, and have great support for carrying heavy packs. I usually don't carry more than 50lbs with these on, but I've carried 75 without any issue. The vibram sole is grippy. I could prob climb a 5.5. Great for loose rocky terrain. The insulation will sweat your feet out in temps over 70-75 degrees. In temps below 20 degrees you've really gotta keep your feet moving to keep your toes warm. In between those temps, they rock! They dry pretty fast too, which is good because they don't really vent. They are pretty short, so walking through deep water isn't really an option, but I've been rock hopping streams with dry feet all they way. I've put a lot of miles on them and they don't show it. Really sick looking boot. I wear them out all the time. When I see someone else wearing Scarpas, I assume that they are hardcore adventurers that expect a lot from their gear and put particular demands on every piece. I initially got them to wear in that mountains in Afghanistan, but I've since worn them tons of other places on more recreationally oriented trips. Never disappoint. I'm no author, so I really can't express just how great these are, but I am sold on Scarpa boots for life. Now I just need to find a good pair for summer hiking. Any recommendations?

they run a little narrow

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small

These boots are awesome. By that, I mean they're stiff, light, good grip, and they look awesome. The one drawback is that they run a little narrow. I didn't realize that right away because it was only at the end of the day that my feet would start to hurt, or when wearing super-thick socks for extra warmth. Tried stretching them with a professional shoe stretcher but they're so rugged it didn't work. My solution was to buy a second pair in wide. They're that good. Only pair of shoes I've ever needed in wide - buyer beware.

Best boots ever?

In two years I have hiked 1,000+ miles and summited 50+ mountains in these and they're still chuggin' along! The Vibram sole is really beginning to show wear, but the body of the boot is still pretty stiff all things considered. When I wear these out, I'll probably just get another pair.

Great Sizing and solid quality boots!

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

I got these boots around 6 months ago, and they have held up very well. The sizing, 40 1/2(7 2/3), was perfect. Very sturdy boots with good tread. Look forward to testing them even more intensively in the future.

Impressed!

I bought these boots after much research for a backcountry bow hunt in the Mt Zirkel wilderness of Colorado. It didn't hurt that I got them on sale at Backcountry.com for $135.00 ! I suppose I've put about 100 miles of steep rugged terrain on these boots since July of 2013. Many miles with full gear packs and there are not many "trails" in high country bowhunting!
These boots performed flawlessly! Very comfortable, lite ,dry (on the inside) and they grip exceptionally well on wet logs and rocks. I was surprised by the grip! No worries about blisters! The only small detractor would be that there is not a lot of ventilation during warm weather.
I did replace the insole w/ a pair of super feet greens...

Kailash?

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

I live at Bariloche (North Patagonia) and the winter conditions often present wet snow or swampy terrains. I found on this gear confort and reliabitity. The disign of the sole makes each step easier due to the rising curve of the sole tips. I'm very happy with them.

Great boots!

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

Just got home from a week in the Sawtooth range in central Idaho. Took about 30 miles to break them in ( I had a few nasty blisters), but after mile 70 my feet feel great and no more blisters. I walked through every stream crossing with confidence, definitely waterproof. I can't wait for my next backpacking adventure so I can get the most out of my new boots.

Great Boot

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size

I got these boots as a gift and have to admit that Scarpa produces high quality products! I wear a Size 6.5 Mens which is a 39 and Scarpa is one of the few hiking manufacturers that offer the smaller sizes. Upon receiving the boots, they are a great fit and while breaking them in, I had no blisters or hot spots! I would buy Scarpa again and would purchase these boots over again.

A friend recommended this boot to me. I have put this boot to the test in the worst environments possible and it has performed like no other. Very durable and comfortable and also very stylish. I love this boot! Please do not stop making this boot.

Not a bad deal

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

Scored a pair on the cheap via SAC (last year's color?), a phenomenal buy. Stupid cheap...

Anyway, size seems pretty true, I normally wear a 45.5 in Scarpa's Italian built boots as they seem to reliably run a tad small. In these Romanian built boots, a 45 would fit fine (which is my normal shoe size) with a lighter summer sock. Toe box seems wider than the Italian built boots too, very roomy by comparison. Extremely comfortable right out of the box and required zero break in miles. Just laced & went with no troubles. Insoles are not the greatest, but a bit improved over previously encountered ones from Scarpa - will slide some Superfeet inserts in there soon.

Sole is not as grippy as my old Scarpa Mustangs for scrambling around on the trails I frequent, but they do clear mud nicely. Lacing is the usual easy Scarpa goodness, works great and ties off with ease. Laces seem okay, not as stretchy as previous boots - held their tension without fuss.

All that said, the boots seem very comfy & capable just like the numerous reviews I read about this particular boot.

I dig 'em and hope they wear as well as my Mustangs did over the years.

Durable and stable

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I committed an unforgiveable act in hiking and purchased these boots on my way to the trail for a wet winter hike. I put eight miles on them the first day over semi challenging terrain with no hotspots or blisters. Since purchasing these boots I have been all over the southwest to include the grand canyon. They perform their best when its cool to cold out like all goretex boots. I have only re-treated the outside once in 3 years and still no leaks. The boot fit has been true to size and it is very stable over rocky terrain. Overall a great boot!

What a great boot!!

Coming from a full leather Vasque Summit GTX i cant say enough about the kailish. Obviously its going to have the Scarpa quality the world has come to know, but i would have never thought they would be so comfy. I would say they compare to asolo in quality. They broke in very easily, really just took one hike up chimney tops in gsmnp to break them in. We did eatern half of AT in GSMNP and mt leconte in the snow and ice and my feet stayed dry and mostly warm other than sitting around shelter at night. The boots worked great with katoohla microspikes. This is a picture at icewater springs shelter with the microspikes on. Overall awesome boot and will diffidently buy another pair when these bite the dust.

I were size US 12. Anyone recommend a size for me. There is either 45 or 46.5 left. Not sure what size to go with.

Best Answer Responded on

The size chart recommends 45.5/46 for a size 12. These boots run a little narrow. If you have a wider foot you might be able to use the 46.5. In my opinion, when it comes to hiking boots, you want a little bit of extra toe space to accommodate for swelling in your feet as you are hiking. That being said, you also don't want your foot moving around. Don't compromise a good fit for a good boot. You can always give it a shot and then return it if it doesn't work. Backcountry has an awesome return policy.

Thanks. Just ordered three different sizes to find the perfect fit. They were willing to let me return the other two free of charge.

Great boots

Bought a week before a trip to the smokies and broke them in on chimney tops trail. Next day we started a hike from Fontana to hot springs on the AT in the snow and ice. The boots did great. Feet stayed dry and warm and they worked very good with the kathoola microspikes. This is my first pair of synthetic and at this point I will never switch back to leather. Plus scarpa boots are high quality.

I bought these boots for my Dad's 60th birthday - and can I just say how stoked he was! Lets just put it this way, for now I am the favorite daughter :) They look perfect - extremely well made, they totally lived up to Scarpa's standard of excellence, besides they are made in Italy, and those Italians know footwear. Fit was perfect right out of the box. I will let you know what kind of mountain stomping action my silver haired dad gets into once they get some mileage. Until then they are a crowd pleaser.
