There's no doubt a low-cut shoe feels lighter on the trail and more sensitive, too. Our Moraine Plus GTX takes the same foundation as the Moraine GTX - Vibram sole, dual-density EVA midsole - and raises the bar. A stretch-gusseted tongue provides a higher performance fit, without sacrificing all-day comfort. To maintain durability, but reduce break-in time, we use a full-grain Nubuck leather upper. It offers the plush feel and out-of-the-box comfort of suede, but the toughness of a full-grain leather.
Upper: 1.8mm Suede
Sizes: 36 - 42(half sizes)
Weight: 390g; 13.8oz (1/2 pair size 38)
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.
Scarpa moraine Hiking BootsBy: David Ryan on 1 July 2019I just bought the Scarpa Moraine for the Larapinta trail. NT This is a tough track on boots and they performed admirably, Soles were just thick enough for the rocks but flexible enough to give grip confidence in the rough terrain . Id recommend them.
Love These Boots!By: Jennifer on 24 June 2019Amazing boots at a great price from my favourite online retailer. Scarpa are the perfect fit for me, although I had to go up a size in these boots from usual sizing for other Scarpa shoes. They are a great fit, lovely colours and hopefully with last as well as all my other Scarpa shoes. Thanks Wild Earth for selling them at a great price. They are so fantastic, I bought two pairs!
Scarps bootsBy: Alison Burt on 15 May 2019Great boots and service.
By: Sandra Williams on 12 May 2019These are the second pair I have purchased.the lightweight boots fit like a glove and don’t look bulky are sturdy whilst being un -rigid. I wore these boots to walk 800 km on the El Camino,Spain.they never let me down ,no blisters,waterproof,comfy, Good grip,I purchased gel liners for that bit of extra luxury. They do the job .
Good support but a little stiffBy: Suka on 24 April 2019I just brought these boots for a short walk of 5 hours. They are my first Scarpa, I must say, it's nice not to have to worry about stepping into small puddles because of the water-resistant quality of the boots. The boots provide good support on the feet. It took me a while to get used to the rigidness of the boots but after half an hour, I was good. One downside is, the top of the boots are quite stiff and they dig into the top of my foot a lot. I am hoping a good, thick pair of socks will solve this problem. In summary, I would recommend these boots.
