The starting point in our climbing career is of fundamental importance. It gives rise to the genetic building blocks that shape our climbing lives. The Origin offers a lush leather upper, giving a feeling of padded luxury that is rarely found in a shoe aimed at encouraging people to start climbing. The flat profile and relatively relaxed randing ease the climber€™s feet into a cocoon of comfort. The hook-and-loop closure keeps the foot snug and well positioned during use. The Origin introduces SCARPA€™s Vision rubber, a proprietary compound that is both sticky and resilient to all the conditions that new climbers feet will experience.

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.
