Lace up and go.
Take care of your feet when you're on a long hike through the mountains with Scarpa's Mistral GTX boot. A Gore-Tex Performance Comfort membrane shields the boot from water seeping in while hiking across melting snow patches at high elevations. The Vibram rubber sole gives a high degree of grip as you scramble from rock to rock up the ridgeline nearing the peak of your objective, and the suede and fabric upper provides comfortable support for your foot and ankle when the scramble starts to get more intense.
- A boot made for trekking from alpine meadows to ridges and summits
- Gore-Tex Performance blocks water when walking over snow patches
- Vibram sole gives traction over steep, rocky terrain
- Suede and fabric upper gives durable, comfortable support.

- Q & A
Fantastic unless you're hauling
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
I've put about 250 miles on my pair of Mistrals and they're practically new. They're extremely waterproof, offer terrific support under load and over tough scrambles, and they're quite light. The biggest issue I've had is a lack of cushion, partly due to my having high arches. I needed to apply moleskin continuously on a hike of the Mt Hood Timberline trail while wearing these, so if you're looking for a boot for hauling multi-day packs, you may want to consider something else. That said, they're nearly the same weight as my approach shoes and trail runners, and I've found myself wearing the Mistrals on day hikes and scrambles to the crag instead of my other footwear. For anything short of a multi-day backcountry hike, these are my go to.
