Scarpa Men's Kinesis Tech GORE-TEX

Scarpa Men's Kinesis Tech GORE-TEX 4.5 5 2 2
good looking boot, very robust and light. An excellent boot for hill walking, fits like a glove, waterproof and very very comfortable, excellent ankle support. 19 February 2013
Stiff sole with good foot protection I bought these (last minute - as a rule, not good practice!) for hiking the GR20 in Corsica. They generally performed well - the GR20 North section terrain is rough / sharp granite which is hard on your footwear... Positives: + stiff sole protects from sharp surface underfoot + the lace system has "locking hooks" half way up making them adjustable + waterproof (but beware the tongue is not fully integral) + the rubber used for the Vibram sole is tough but sticky on granite, very secure Negatives: - I suffered a small amount of rubbing on both heels (resulting in blisters by day 8), but this may be down to personal fit - the toebox rand did not wear well - some detatchment (I met and talked with others on the route and their boots withstood the terrain) I also bought custom footbeds - I generally do this with high-end footwear (e.g. also for ski boots), so can not comment on the standard footbeds. 19 October 2012

Glossary

Nubuck Leather:Classy and robust full-grain leather with slight sanding to create the characteristic velvet appearance. Depending on the required finish, Nubuck can be waxed, brushed or left untreated.
GORE-TEX Performance Comfort Footwear lining:A lining that offers durable waterproof protection and is moderately insulated for changing conditions. It provides the optimal combination of breathability and insulation to keep feet warm and dry.
Vibram? Biometric sole unit:Lightweight yet extremely sturdy sole anatomically designed for increased comfort.
BD Last:A modern last that provides exceptional foot-hold and has enough volume to allow for modern levels of cushioning to be incorporated within the boot for greater instant comfort and all day performance.
Heel Tension System:An innovative system applied to the heel area of the upper that offers great stability and adaptability to the severe stress derived from steep routes.
Ankle Padding System:Made of a special "MEMORY FOAM" padding, this system improves the self-moulding properties of the rear part of the upper. This technical solution is very light and breathable, and keeps its dynamic memory in terms of last and thickness so it recovers its original shape after every use.
Autofit Collar:The ergonomic design and special padding of the collar ensures the maximum adaptability and comfort of the upper, and helps reduce the impact stress on the Achilles and malleous area for great performance and comfort on any terrain.
V-Flex System:The ergonomic design of the upper ankle flex area allows a wider and more natural movement of the foot, so that the upper can adapt itself to the movement of the foot, even when walking on steep routes with heavy packs. The upper, in synergy with the lacing system, wraps the foot in an optimal way, offering the maximum comfort and support.
Speed Lacing System:Integrated with the ergonomic design of the upper, this lacing system allows the optimal adjustment of the internal volumes of the shoe and the perfect wrapping of the foot, in a simple and quick way. This makes the fit more precise and customised for maximum confidence on any terrain.
Activ Fit technology:Provides a new level of instant, out of the box comfort and performance, ensuring the foot stays continually supported and secure.
