These shoes were of good quality. Own literally 30 pair of SCARPA’s. As with my other pair of GoreTex-type shoes, they fit totally different than the NON-GoreTex Kalipes, which unquestionably fit better. I’d choose the non-Goretex shoes and Nikwax the hell out out them (which I have done to both pairs). All things asides, the Romanian build quality is 10 times better than anything I see out of China. One of the big reasons I buy them…

ABSOLUTELY love these shoes! They are SUPER comfy and they look very stylish :)

I have another pair of this brand and love them so I thought I’d try these. Very comfortable so far but I think they will be more so as I break them in. I use them for day to day wear as well as some pretty intense hikes

My wife and I each have two pairs of these shoes, purchased because we were retiring abroad, ditching our cars, and walking everywhere. We usually walk between 20-30 miles a week just getting around and hiking this large city. These shoes are absolutely the best shoes fort walking, much more supportive and rigid for ultimate protection from the many sidewalk and street hazards here. They are well worth the price and much better than standard athletic/running trainers. They are also extremely well made and hold up to the rigorous walking we do everyday. We both enthusiastically recommend Scarpa Mojitos without reservation!!!

Love love love these shoes. Bought as walking shoes for Italy. Fit perfect as soon as I put them on. No need to break in. I like that they are fabric instead of leather so easier to pack.

This boot is well made, but the toe box is very narrow.
Funny on August 21, 2021
Extremely narrow shoe. Toe box area compacts and squishes your smaller toes. The cloth feels cheep.
Mike from VA on August 14, 2021
Entirely too narrow. The toe box area is extremely narrow and tight hurting your smaller toes. Returning.

A great boot for uneven terrain. The sole is surprisingly stiff (in a good way) and gives a lot of confidence on rocks and edges. It’s not a mountaineering boot but has good mountaineering qualities. My best all-around boot that I own.

fit is great size is accurate i'm still breaking them in

I just purchased these and wore them on a moderate hike in the White Mountains, with quite a bit of rough trails and steep rock scrambling. They performed great. I ordered the 43 (10) and 43.5 (10.3). Other reviewers noted that they ran a bit small and I also found this to be the case. They also seem a bit narrower than some other boots although this is not a problem for me. I chose these because they seemed like a great value, being not as heavy-duty as a full-grain leather backpacking boot, but more durable than many light hiking boots. I read that nubuck leather tends to be stronger than suede and synthetic, but it is lighter weight than full-grain. Also, the midsole is polyurethane, which is reputed to be more durable than the EVA used in cheaper boots. I purchased these in anticipation of an 8-day backpacking trip in Vermont. I almost went with the Asolo full-grain leather boot, which would have been more durable and had a better two-year warranty, but ultimately I chose this Kailash Plus because I loved the well-rounded durability combined with great comfort and light weight. I'm very happy with my decision so far. Finally, I like the understated look of this boot compared to the over-styling of many other models.

Super comfortable and stylish hiking shoes! I went by my European size 39. (I normally wear 8.5 US). They fit perfectly and didn’t need much breaking in. My husband has the men’s version and they have held up really well over the years!

I love the look of these shoes and decided to give Zappos a try for the first time to purchase them. I tried them on at the house and wore them around for a day or so and all seemed fine. About a week later, having worn them outside, they began to rub a small area on top of my forth toe and it became a noticeable problem. In attempting to return or exchange them, I was informed by my wearing them outside, there was not no option for returning them and I would be stuck with the shoes. I had read this already on the return policy but in wearing them for a week in the house with no problem, I had no reason not to begin to wear them outside. Guess I'm eating the $165 bucks I spent on these shoes. I will also be making this the last purchase from Zappos because I have too many retail store options available that allow me to return barely worn shoes without an issue. Hello and good bye Zappos!

they were true to my size,they are a great shoe,very trim looking and stylish, they look like there made very well!!! so far ,so good

I love them, especially the color and design.
Zappos Reviewer on July 07, 2021
Production defects in tongue--irregular attachment at toe box and curled at the sides with cramped space on instep. It's a completely different tongue construction than when shoe was made in Italy, where tongue was stabilized in place being attached (sewn) to the side of the shoe 2/3's of its length, with a smooth feel at the toe and instep. Inconsistent quality control is disappointing as a previous shoe bought a month ago had better construction. Suggest you inspect the tongue to lie flat and smooth, no curling at edge, before installing.

I have been a happy Crux user for years. This is my second pair. These are very technical "approach" shoes that are looking more dated with each passing season, but they do an exceptional job at maintaining grip and protecting my toes on all sorts of rocks and trails. They run ever so slightly narrow, but I am OK with the fit. Being not too narrow, they let me drive my jeep to the trail, do my hike, and drive home without a footwear change. They are versatile for world travel as well, from Iceland to the Sahara. Scarpa now makes a lightweight version called the "Crux Air" that I'll consider as well. The laces to the tips of the toes are the defining look and feel of this shoe, and they provide a very protective toe box up front. No thorny vegetation or pebbles can get to my feet in these. Will buy again.
Brendan from New York, NY on July 03, 2021
Really like these shoes. This is my second pair. My first pair needs to be replaced because I wear them so much (about five years of daily wear, and even then the only issue is that the bottoms are getting a little smooth). I don't wear them for climbing or anything outdoors. I wear them to work, on weekends, traveling. My feet are a little wide and a little thick, so I like that the shoes lace down so far and I can adjust the fit. While it wasn't an issue for me, note that the soles are not particularly thick or cushioned.
Zappos Reviewer on June 30, 2021
Theses shoes felt good and solid. They are well made and I can imagine they would last for a long while but I needed to return them. While they did fit they tended to make my foot pronate inwardly. I seek shoes and boots that are neutral, not pronating nor supinating. These shoes did not specify in the description and maybe I'm wrong, but while they felt good on the foot I felt like my ankles were ever so slightly moving inwards.... in other words; pronating. Long term it wouldn't be the right shoe for me. Pity.
Zappos Reviewer on June 30, 2021
I feel weird doing this but I have to return these shoes after wearing them for several weeks. The fit great, the look great, they are heavy duty, and they are seriously built to last. I was completely impressed with the Scarpa Zen Pro, except for one little thing.....and that was enough to send them back. There is a small lump or ripple in the interior on the sole of the right shoe that is directly under the ball of my foot. I didn't notice it right away, but after wearing the shoes for a week, my foot was sore on the ball (felt swollen). I tried adjusting the laces. I tried tightening the laces. I tried loosening the laces. Nothing seemed to work. I found myself taking off my shoes in the office to get some relief during the day. I went another few days but decided I just couldn't make it work. And since the shoes were rather expensive, I have to send them back, sans their box (because I recycled it too soon). I'm ordering another pair of the Zen Pros because I love these shoes - I'm just hoping the ones I received were defective. Zappos - sorry to send the shoes back after being worn outside - I wouldn't normally do this but I must this time. I'll keep buying shoes from you.
Jason from Lutz, Florida on June 25, 2021
The fit for me was great because my feet are long, narrow and flat. I have also had multiple orthopedic surgeries so I needed something sturdy. I am sold on the Scarpa Zen. So much so that I bought a second pair. I have orthopedic inserts so I have some ready made arch support but these shoes provide additional support that most shoes don't.
Rick from Kansas on June 20, 2021
LOVE LOVE LOVE, fit perfectly, felt comfortable from the first wear. Perfection.
Zappos Reviewer on June 11, 2021
The fit is comfortable for both width and length; this is a true to size show.
Zappos Reviewer on May 29, 2021

Zappos Reviewer on May 29, 2021
Fits well in my standard Scarpa size, super grippy
