    Whether your hammering out a new best time on that 14er in your home range or packing light on a week long trip through the Wind Rivers, the Scarpa Men's R-Evolution GTX Backpacking Boot will carry you over miles of rugged terrain with minimal weight and plenty of support. Blending the comfort of a lightweight hiker with the support of an alpine boot, Scarpa's Sock-Fit DV construction uses both Schoeller stretch material and memory foam to deliver a snug and comfortable fit that still delivers support for hiking with a heavy pack. In addition to being durable, the suede upper will tighten progressively (think approach shoe) for a sweet blend of comfort and traction. A Gore-Tex membrane sweetens the deal even more by delivering waterproof, breathable performance, and the Revolution EVA midsole helps cradle your feet over miles of rock-strewn moraines.

    Comfortable & Durable

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 44.5

    Use: 1 season/550 hours. North Cascades National Park backcountry/off trail research. 10hrs/day, 8 consecutive days. Boots are slightly less than 1/2 their life now.

    These hiking boots perform outstandingly in many ways compared to other "similar-type" boots I've worked in. The performance/durability to weight top notch.

    -Durability: Very good. These appear like they would withstand over 3 years of typical use. Sole wears evenly w/o breaking tread blocks. No peeling, punctures, inside-holes, or broken hardware. The Schoeller upper is very durable, not getting punctured by sticks or pilling from thorns. GTX above toes needs maint. every 50-ish hours at boot's half-life (typical for two+ piece uppers).

    - Comfort: EVA Foam absorbent without being overly sloppy. Sole provides good wet and dry grip without wearing quickly. Lacing is well done giving tons of support or very little. The sock fit works to distribute pressure over the foot. The overall construction is a great balance of stability and walking.

    What break in period?

    I picked these boots up mid summer two days before a backpacking trip and didn't have time to break them in. I was pretty nervous hitting the trail with something so new but over the next three days I put 30 miles (challenging terrain in the mission mountains) on them and they did great. No blisters and no hotspots for the first two days. The last day I got blisters on the inside of both big toes, this was at no fault of the boot. The only reason I had any issues was because the boots were wet the entire time due to constant bushwacking though wet waist high brush and several rivers. Since then I have put a lot of miles on them in normal hiking conditions and they have continued to do very well and see to be quite durable. These boots fall into that middle weight level of boots where you get a good combo of support and yet maintain a light weight feel.

    A good pair of boots!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 46

    I purchased these boots in the middle of summer. I did have to go a half size bigger than I first thought. They fit perfectly now. I have had three major hikes in them with a few small break in, warm up hikes. They handle all types of terrain very well and feel solid even with a heavy pack on. We have a lot of volcanic scree in these parts and the Scarpa's preform with ease. Only complaint is they run a little hot and it did cause me to get a pretty heathy blister on my inside heel. I am just going to change up my sock options during the warmer months. All in all I can see these boots taking me to where I want to go for a long time to come:)

    These boots are beast!

    These boots rock on the trail! I wish they were a tad more breathable, but that is my only, minuscule complaint!

    Awesome Right Out of the Box

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    Picked these up recently replacing a pair of La Sportiva Omega GTX. Right out of the box these boots looked and felt great with a very comfortable and relatively light feel. Took them out for a quick overnighter to the Palisades in the Eastern Sierra to take advantage of a great spring weather window in March. The boots handled great overall on all terrains from dry rocky subalpine to the snows above 9k'. My feet stayed dry, though a little cold, while hiking & snowshoeing in the snow and had great traction on one frozen lake crossing.
    Not the burliest boot, but a burly boot was not something that I was after. Good ankle support with proper lacing that had me feeling secure even with a 45lb pack. Looking forward to future trails with these kicks!

    Initial thoughts = Great Boot

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    Since there were no reviews on these, here are my initial thoughts - The boots seem to be fantastic quality and just as the description states, a lightweight boot that is a good combination of big mountain boot and smaller hiking boot. I can definitely tell they will need some breaking in. Sizing is true to size, perhaps slightly small. I wear a 10.5 UA boots, 10 Asics shoes, and 10.5 Nike shoes, and I ordered a 44 of these; the boot length is really perfect. As for width, I normally don't have any issues with width of boots/shoes, but I can tell that these are a narrower boot, still fit me great though. You can really get the lacing nice and tight on this boot, and one of the first things I noticed was the ample heel support with the memory foam.

    Can't wait to put these through their paces and will be sure to provide more feedback when I do.

    Unanswered Question

    I'm wondering if anyone knows how Scarpa backpacking boots fit -- wide or narrow in forefoot, low volume/high volume, tight or loose heel, etc.?
