Very comfortable boot for wider feet
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
Tried these on at the store, along with some other pairs. I ended up going for Lowas Ticams because they're fit my feet better however I was really impressed about how comfortable they were. They fit like a pillow around my ankle, making it a really tough choice. They have a lot of support for heavy loads as well as a wide toebox. They seem like would be pretty durable since they're full leather and the rubber rand goes completely around the boot. One thing I wasn't sure of was the degree of rocker on the sole. I'm not crazy about this feather because although it saves energy by eliminating footflex I always feel that I don't have as good a grip on steeper terrain. Just my preference though.
Scarpa Kinesis Pro GTX Boot - Men's
scarpa.... GETS IT
First off, the boots are EXTREMELY well made. Size seems true to fit. Of course time will tell how durable and comfortable they are, but they seem great out of the box.
Outstanding Backpacking Boot!
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I compared this boot with two other high-end Italian backpacking boots for several days. For my C-width foot the Kinesis Pro was clearly superior in fit. Forefoot and heel-area fit perfectly out of the box but getting ankle collar to be comfortable req'd a week of all day wear plus a couple of 5+ mile hikes. Now the fit and comfort level are perfect all-around. Pulley lacing system allows for micro-adjustment of tension across the forefoot. Geometry of lacelocks allow for two separate lacing tensions, one across forefoot,another for heel cup/ankle = outstanding adjustability and fit. Although overkill for general hiking this boot comes into its own when a loaded pack is worn. Superior stability when loaded compared to its competitors. I unreservedly recommend this boot for backpacking use
When are you going to get new sizes in?...
When are you going to get new sizes in? I'm looking for Men's size 11 (44.5 Euro). I would rather buy from backcountry.com than someone else!
We currently have 1 size 44.5 left in stock. If you haven't ordered the shoe yet, I would jump on that item!

What's the difference between this and the Scarpa SL Active Boot ???
The Kinesis Pro GTX and SL Activ are build using the same BD last, feature the same mid-sole material and both have a full rand. They also happen to come in at the same weight.
The SL Activ is essentially a refined SL M3. The Kinesis Pro GTX is a Gore-Tex boot and the SL Activ, like the SL M3, is not Gore-Tex.
