Rupert Edward Cecil Lee Guinness (of both Guinness World Record and the Dublin-brewed dark ale fame) established the Scarpa footwear company in the late 1930s, in order to give a future to skilled Italian craftsmen in leather processing. Translated from its Italian acronym, S.C.A.R.P.A stands for Association of Footwear Manufacturers from the area of Asolo.
By the mid-1950s, three brothers hired by Scarpa were able to take ownership, and brought the traditions of their land, their culture, and their beliefs into the business. After an Italian-American in Boston showcased the quality of his footwear to his coworkers, the North American market opened up, and production went from 10,000 pairs to 120,000 pairs within 5 short years.
Scrapa boots vs 1 in 10 year snow dump on OverlandBy: Alan McInnes on 22 September 2017Bought these boots a few months ago to hike the Overland Track, be patient breaking them in as it's all worth it. Hiked the track in 30 - 200cm of snow and the only water ingress was some sweat and snow under the gaiters. They are expensive but a true investment for the future. Also hiked the Sunshine Coast great walk in opposite conditions and they were equally comfortable. Great stability while carrying a +20kg pack.
