Scarpa Mescalito Mid GTX approach shoe is a true light hiking boot, as well as being ideal for more demanding approaches and Via Ferrata. The foundation of the Mescalitio mid is the Vibram Dynamis sole unit using Lite Base technology, which significantly reduces the overall weight of the boot. This is combined with a bi-density EVA midsole for cushioning and a TPU shank for torsional support on rough terrain. The outsole is Vibram Megagrip for maximum adhesion on rock. The upper of the Mescalito is constructed from thermo-embossed suede, backed up with a waterproof, durable Gore-Tex membrane. A lateral PU rand shields the upper from scuffs and scrapes, and a rubber toe cap offers grip as well as protection. The lace to toe design combined with the stretch tongue ensure the best possible fit.
