Just the call on your days away from the mountains.

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.
Awesome shoe; comfortable; SCARPABy: Dale Ramsey on 4 August 2017From the moment I received my purchase from Wild Earth and slipped them on I have enjoyed the surety under foot of these shoes. These are now my urban and travel shoe. No need to wear them in and they look better on my foot than the picture on the website. Highly recommend these shoes and the comfort they provide. They feel very light and wrap around the foot like a glove. Arch support is minimal so as I have a high arch it will be interesting to see how that goes. Oddly enough I have found my 2 pair of Scarpa shoes to be smaller in size than my standard running shoe. I normally wear an US8.5 in my ASICS Gel Nimbus, however, I have found the current size (US8) to fit like a glove and with room to spare in the toe box. Thank you Scarpa and Wild Earth!
