Mojito Planet Suede
I have the regular non-bio Mojitos which have been the only shoes I could wear with my "lifted" orthopedic inserts (like the $300 kind). These shoes would need some sort of insert, bc the what it comes with has no support, just a thin strip. These are quite stylish if you like the look of the original. I wore a 9 in the mojitos, but found I needed a 9.5 in this style. However, the 9.5s I did get felt defective (like the R side didn't fit like the other pairs of any of my previous try ons for this shoe). So I am sending them back to rebuy in the same size and hope that I do not have this problem again. I have a M (widish) foot and I do think they run narrow. The tongue situation seems to be better and more comfortable.

I was looking for a light hiking shoe and I came across these. These shoes are more than I expected, they look good, feel good and have good traction. They feel good right out the box, no break in period.

Really nicely made shoe, love brand. Too wide for my 8M foot with some slippage. No arch support for my high arch, inside flat.

I had read previous reviews about the eyelets coming off and so was a little hesitant but ordered them in anycase because they seemed the perfect combination of sturdy and light. The design is nice, modern but not overstated and I saw no sign of any issues with the eyelets. The boots fits true to size and slides on like a sock. The thing you notice immediately about these boots is that they are so light. Never before have I worn true hiking boots that are this light and because of this I really really wanted to select these as my boots going forward. Unfortunately, in order to make them light Scarpa have been a little conservative on the padding, especially around the ankle. This means that after some time of wearing them around the house my feet and ankles were not very happy. I compared these side-by-side with the Kailash Trek Gtx boot from Scarpa that I also ordered and these are a slightly heavier but much more padded version of the same boot and so alas the Mescalito's have gone back. I'm a long time Scarpa fan and these Mescalito Trk Gtx boots are a great leap forward in technology, they just need to ensure the quality padding that usually comes with Scarpa makes it to these as well - hopefully the next version of these boots will be perfection.

These boots are excellent. They have a nice high profile with the best support of the current Scarpa boots in the hiking category. The leather is good quality and the lacing system is excellent. They have been returned however, as they are too heavy on the feet compared to the others in the range and too hot for the climate I am walking in most of the time. If you want something sturdy and you're not going to be heading up hill most of the time you are unlikely to beat these.

Sizing and fit was true to Scarpa's usual sizing. The boot was not as well made as most Scarpa boots though hence the return. The materials felt cheaper than their other boots.

true to size, very comfortable with firm support , the perfect city hiking shoe

Fits nicely. Leather is of good quality, my only concern is how the soft leather on the tongue will hold up with repeated lacing and cinching.

perfect true to size

I'm on my second pair of Zens, one the older model & now this one. These are just awesome shoes for me. The fit can be infinitely adjusted throughout the entire length to get it just right for whatever activity you're doing (unless you have wide feet; then this may not be true for you), and they are bullet proof. The sole/mid-soles are firm and STIFF. This is not a walk around in the mall shoe. I even prefer to add a thin Spenco layer to soften them up a little without changing their amazing fit. They do take a little breaking in to conform to your feet, but it's well worth it.

I’m on my second pair of these boots after taking a gamble on Scarpa, a relatively unknown brand to me. It was a great call. The first pair is one of the only pairs of boots I’ve loved enough to have genuinely worn out, as in worn the soles flat. It took several years and hundreds of miles of desert trails. I have a high arch and somewhat narrow foot. I find the fit to be perfect for me. These are very high quality boots with materials that will last a good long time. I’ll probably buy a third pair because you never know when your favorite pair will be discontinued. There’s a reason why these get so many 5 star reviews.

These boots are EXACTLY as advertised. If your considering Scarpa, stop reading this review and get exploring!
Zappos Reviewer on December 18, 2022
fit is very consistent over the years. with a left foot that was severely broken 5 years ago, this style/brand has consistently provided a reliable comfort & fit that I had been unable to find (after Sarpa discontinued the previous model I had been wearing)

Amazing quality in the making of this boot! The material and workmanship is beyond any other boot I've tried. That said, unfortunately I had to return them. The fit was half size too large and I was concerned that if I went 1/2 size smaller the toe box would be too tight. They seemed to narrow towards the toe, kind of a pointy toe box. For reference my fit is a regular 7.5, but even with heavy boot socks these were jus not going to work for me. If you are interested I would highly recommend trying them. And if they fit you will have one amazing pair of boots!

fit was excellent. the shoe was sturdy for lots of hiking/walks
Zappos Reviewer on December 07, 2022
Love these shoes. Bought them for travel, lots of walking /hiking every day, very comfortable. No break in period required. Looking fw to some hikes at home in these.

very well made , great fit and gives you a nice push running or speed walking I can truly say the best shoe on the market today for this purpose

Love these, I wear them for all my outdoor activities, from beekeeping to gardening to hiking. I'm an artist, and I paint outdoors a lot. These are perfect for getting me where I need to be and then standing for several hours while I paint. I had a bad ankle sprain years ago and need extra support for that ankle. These are perfect; easy on and off, and plenty of room for my thick hiking socks.

The Zen Pro has excellent quality of design, material, and manufacture, with great fit that required no break in time. I have worn their Mojito for years with ease and thought to try the Zen Pro - not disappointed! These shoes will provide years of service.

Fit just as they were supposed to. One piece leather with only one seam makes for a better boot. Very good quality.
Zappos Reviewer on November 09, 2022
I usually wear US size 11, this one is 11.6 (seriously) and fit me just right with thicker socks too. Hands down the best boots I ever worn for work. I am a technician in remote Alaska and on my feet for 10-12 hours a day in the Bucket truck, snowy and muddy conditions, on ladders, in the attics, on 4 wheelers, at various random places, etc. Superior grip and tank like feel with great support on my ankle. I would by another one as needed, no question about that.

I consider these a true improvement over the previous (cigar) Kailash version, primarily for the improved lacing fitments. more supportive collar, and the superb biometric outsole; I love this sole! I got hooked on it with the passé Scarpa Zanskar. Too bad that boot is no longer available; it was a terrific leather boot for weaker (previously sprained) ankle in particular. Sizing: I had to go with a 45 wide to get the fit I require, which fits similarly (for me) to the Scarpa SL Activ last; a last that’s designed for more toe-box space. I wear a 44.5 (11)W in most other shoes. If you are a full D width, I think you’ll need the wide version of this boot vs. the standard, and perhaps a 1/2 size above your normal fit. It’s a close call on these points, but it matters in a boot of this quality and purpose. Best to try two sizes if in doubt.

If you are srsly considering these boots, they likely need no introduction. I've owned the Ribelle HD since early 2020, and have put a few routes, a few miles, and 3 Chugach sheep seasons under them. Coming from hard boots, they are a revelation.They are outstanding on rock, hold semi-rigid [C2] crampons well, are wider in the forefoot than other Italian offerings in this class, they walk much more like a hiking boot than an alpine boot, but you can reef down the outstanding lacing system and lock in the foot to a stiff stole to keep going up long after the trail ends. They are also skookum enough to last hundreds of miles on and off-trail here in the wet brushy slate mountains of Southcentral Alaska, which is not at all easy for a boot. Moreover, I'm still reasonably intact and confident the boots will still keep my feet dry next spring when meltwater turns my approach trails to 3" deep freestone creeks. That 2.6mm Perwanger leather is no joke.... ...PROTIPS: Don't be afraid to size up if your climbing hunting backpacking bushwhacking includes a lot of horizontal miles. This boot is sized to offer a precise technical fit for summer alpine climbing on all but vertical ice, like for a guide who lives at the base of the mountain and straps on crampons every day, yet sleeps in a bed every night with his feet elevated... The sole of my size 45 [11.5] Ribelle HD is a good bit smaller than the bottom of both my 10.5 Danner work boots and my 10.5 Altra trail runners, yet all are good fits and the Ribelle still locks my normal heels securely, and I can tighten them down like a ski boot when I need to pack a stupid load down a ridiculous incline. . . tldr: Steezy boot is everything Scarpa says it is - light fast durable capable of Matterhorn Aconcagua Kilimanjaro and all the famous via ferratas of Europe - and sometimes you can catch it on super sale here at Zappos. Size up for life. :)

Third Pair. Excellent walking shoe.
Zappos Reviewer on October 26, 2022
I bought an 8.5 due to the reviews saying that they ran small and since I like to use an insert. They were still too big, especially in the heel. I admittedly have a more narrow heel than most, but it's not super common for shoes to be that big in the heel. I love that they are purple and will buy the 8 and see if they fit any better.
