The Moraine Plus Mid GTX takes an already successful product family to the next level. The same Vibram Dynatech 3 sole connects you to the trail, with a dual-density EVA midsole for shock absorption and comfort. Same Gore-Tex liner for waterproof-breathable protection. The Plus gets upgraded to a full-grain Nubuck upper for next-level quality and durability. Always obsessed with comfort, we decided to build in a stretch-gusseted tongue, giving the boot a more nimble, custom feel.
Upper: 1.8mm Nubuck + Recycled Polyester Mesh
Sizes: 40 - 47, 48(half sizes)
Weight: 500g; 1lb 2oz (1/2 pair size 42)
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.
