I purchased these shoes without high expectations. They took a few days of breaking in, but quickly became extremely comfortable. These have easily become my favorite shoes.

I wanted to like these shoes. I have another pair of Scarpas (Mojito) and they fit well. Admittedly, I have narrow feet and finding shoes that are not too wide is a challenge. Nevertheless, my Mojitos are medium width and I have no complaints about them. So, I thought that I would try another pair from Scarpa. I was wrong. These are wide...not just a tad wide for me, but much wider than the Mojitos and verging on "clown shoe" wide. And no, adding an insole will not save them for me. I really cannot comment on any other aspect of the product, except that my short "trial" also suggested that the any arch support was also limited. They are going back.

This boot had an odd fit, the tor box was roomy, the shoe overall ran a bit large. BUT the top of the toe box angled in such a way as to rub the top of my foot. No go.

I wanted to try a pair of Scarpa hiking shoes because I had heard the quality was excellent. These shoes did not disappoint in that regard. They had everything I was looking for: Gore-Tex waterproofing, Vibram lug soles, and excellent arch support. I normally wear a 7 1/2 but my foot is wider than average, with a high instep, and this can make it challenging to find the right fit. I ordered two sizes: the 39 and the 39 1/2. I found the 39 1/2 to be the best fit worn with a moderately cushioned sock (Darn Tough hiking crew) with plenty of room in the toe box. The left shoe was extremely comfortable and supportive, but I had a problem with the right shoe. It felt like there was something pressing against the bottom of my heel (I even pulled the insole out to make sure nothing was trapped underneath it). I couldn't find any explanation for the uncomfortable feeling in the right heel. Since I suffer from Plantar Fasciitis in that foot, I didn't want to take any chances of aggravating it with the wrong shoe. So, even though these were great shoes, I had to return them and will try another brand -- perhaps one with more cushioning in the heel area.

I've had four pairs of these over several years. Old design was reliable and felt great on my feet. New design is awful. Toes are cramped, and shoe is narrower than it was before. This has caused aches and pains everywhere, including aggravating an old injury I haven't felt for years. Material is much less forgiving and overall look of the shoe is chunkier, so it just doesn't look as nice as it used to. Really disappointed.

Felt and looked great and comfortable

After owning these shoes for one month and just walking, the stitching started coming undone on both shoes. The location of the stitching is where the inside of the show meets the outside (picture attached). I do not run. I have only been walking. Zappos was fantastic through their customer support, but I am disappointed in the shoes.

I purchased these shoes for walking in Italy. So far, I have put about 50 miles on the shoes. I put gel inserts for additional cushioning. The shoes are pretty comfortable, but I suggest lacing the tongue as it will travel to the side after a while which is less comfortable. Without the extra cushion, walking several miles on pavement and stone pavers would make feet sore. Even with the cushioning, the balls of my feet are sore after a day of walking. They are not when I wear Asics running shoes (point of comparison). However, I think the Scarpas are far more stylish than running shoes.

I ordered a half size bigger than I normally wear (9 so got 9.5) based on other reviews and they fit PERFECTLY. They are very comfortable, and stable without pressing on my ankles. I have NOT hiked in them yet, only worn them around the farm, but am very happy with them so far.
Zappos Reviewer on May 24, 2019
YEAH!!! They fit! I've tried on more shoes than I care to admit and finally a pair of shoes that fit my narrow ankles and the different size feet. I had to adjust the laces to make them just right.

Bunions? Narrow heel? Are you a walker? If so these are for you! If you are a person w/style, you can wear these w/ jeans, skirts. suits. This is mt 2nd pair since 2017, and those are still intact.

After the Scarpa Crux fit so well, I had high hopes that the Scarpa Mojito would fit the same. Sadly, I had to return them because the size 8 Mojito were much larger than the Crux. Since the shoes didn't fit, I can't give the Mojito a fair rating.
Eileen on May 21, 2019
Very comfortable, neat color. They look like bowling shoes because of the laces going all the way to the toe.
Zappos Reviewer on May 18, 2019
This is my out-of-the-box review. I was excited to purchase a premium brand for a change. The shoe is narrow, which works well for me. I usually order a size up for sneakers, and that worked out well too. The construction is solid, if not a little stiff. Hopefully it will loosen up with regular wear. Not sure it's a good value for the price, but it's a very good looking shoe. Not loud, not overstated or over-logoed like so many other athletic shoes.

I normally wear a size 9 in women's shoes. Since these had EU sizing, and after reading the reviews about them running small, I ordered a half size bigger. They are perfect. They are really comfortable, at least around the house! I'll have to see how they do outside.
Zappos Reviewer on May 17, 2019
YEAH!!!! After trying on more shoe brands and styles than I thought possible, I have finally found a pair of shoes that fit! As probably most people have, one of my feet is smaller than my other. And I have narrow ankles. These shoes fit the bill! I plan on these being my everyday shoes, for walking and hiking.

My wife and I each ordered two pairs of hiking shoes for an upcoming trip where we are going to be doing quite a bit of walking. We did not want something that looked like running shoes, because we were going to be wearing them in the city, and sometimes in the evenings, and neither of us wanted to take a bunch of shoes along. We both loved these shoes for not only the style, but also the fit. My wife actually through they looked cute on her size 9 feet! The laces running almost all the way to the toe is not only a style element, but offers a more customized fit. We are both wearing them a lot to break them in, and find them very comfortable and supportive, even without extra support from orthotics/inserts (but the factory insert is removable if you need to put your own inserts in). Overall these are great shoes and worth the price, and such a surprise that we both loved these and now have matching shoes for our trip!

These arethe perfect size eleven. They fit a low volumn foot well without crowding the width due to the laces. I think I will order a second pair.
Dave from Hood River, oregon on May 13, 2019
From the first time I put these on, I've fallen in love. Ultra comfortable, snug and supportive. Love them
Tim from Brooklyn on May 10, 2019
Superb hiking shoe slash boot. I love the mojito shoe which I have in black. And am blown away with this shoe slash boot. I think its perfect for three season backpacking where a little ankle support is wanted while at the same time saving on weight yet still having a little stiffness and great heal capture without rolling you over on your toe too much like the Scarpa SL active and Kneisis can do. Fit is awesome. Love it don't change a thing.

I've had these 4yrs now and I can say without question, these are the best most well made boots I have EVER had. The stability, arch support, sturdiness, build quality,....eveythin about them is on a WAY different level than any other. The feature I like the best is the ankle support, the second you put them on, you can feel a huge difference in the 2 areas of the ankle that indent on your foot. Completely fills these in with support and comfortable padding. One of the stiffest soles boots I have had which I love!. They envoke soooo much confidence. I see these last 10+ yrs easy with routine maintenance of the leather

I like the shoe and tried a men's size since my feet are wide. I normally wear women's 10 and tried a man's 8.5. They were too narrow, so I returned them. Otherwise I liked them a lot and wished they had fit better.
Zappos Reviewer on May 05, 2019
I love this shoe! It is so comfortable and stylish! The lagoon color is beautiful and the inside of the shoe feels like it was tailored to my feet exactly. I am a reliable US size 6 and I bought the EU 36 and find it’s a perfect fit. In my opinion the size conversion chart listed by SCARPA is inaccurate but having bought numerous euro sized shoes my experience has been that the size 36 consistently works well for me. The shoe is very well made and the styling does have a distinctive bent to it. If you like Keen shoes but are looking for a more sleek, streamlined fit and style you may like this one a lot. The only bummer is that the color selection available in the US is limited. I bought two more pairs out of Germany when Zappos nor the American distributor located in Boulder, CO both said that they couldn’t get the colors I wanted. They have so many vibrant, fun colors but I suppose it would be a lot of skews to carry if you had their whole rainbow in every size in inventory. These shoes render a stable gait and are quite sturdy. Eventually I plan to buy several more colors beyond the three that I have. The suede is so pretty...definitely a dry day shoe!

This shoe is one of the best out there! This is my 6th pair of Scarpa shoes. Great quality. Tough and comfy. Great multipurpose trail shoe!
Melton from Cullowhee NC on April 26, 2019
I love these shoes! The fit is perfect, however, I wouldn't want to wear them with socks. I also love the style- very distinctive without being over the top. My wife thinks they are the coolest shoes I've ever worn.
