Enjoy the approach.
Scarpa's Mescalito Shoe gets you to remote alpine areas where the rock has been weathered into bulletproof five star lines. A Vibram rubber sole keeps your feet in place so you can be confident when hopping across a talus field or scrambling up steep rocky inclines. The suede upper provides comfortable durability while working in tandem with the rubber toe rand to resist abrasion, creating a bombproof construction that excels through the demanding approach. The lacing is reminiscent of climbing shoes, with a toe-to-heel design that customizes fit for a snug performance on the trail.

Bomber Without the Extra Weight
Initial Impressions: Of a similarly high build quality and price as my previous Zen Pros. Both are made at Scarpa's Romanian facility. I would say that these are slightly slimmer and significantly lighter. My size 47 (13US) Zen Pros weighted 42oz for the pair, while the Mescalitos in the same size are 37oz. For reference, my 5.10 guide tennies (RIP) were 36oz and my Chinese made Scarpa Epics are 35.5oz. The weight feels right for a tough shoe, while the Zens felt a bit heavy. Overall I would call these a lighter, slightly more precise version of the Zen. Those two qualities were my only conceivable improvements to the Zen, well done. The fit is spot on with other Scarpas, a testament to their quality control. If you've worn the brand, confidently order your size. Scarpa makes great footwear and I am always happy to recommend them, but would rather not be a walking billboard! What is with the styling on the outside rand? Something more subtle like the shoe on the left might be more palatable. Otherwise they are a fine looking shoe.
