Scarpa Moraine Mid GTX

Jun 1, 2012
Outside Magazine

BEST FOR: The one-pair hiker. THE TEST: “They just fit me,” was a common refrain, with testers exclaiming how secure the instep felt. That snug feel comes from the suede rib cage that wraps from the sole to the eyelets to enclose your foot like a clamshell. The result, we found, was ankle stability for rough trails rivaled only by the Salewas and the Vasque Velocity. With Gore-Tex lining and rugged metal upper eyelets that lace fast like the ferrules on a fly rod, this shoe is packed with features—especially for the price. If you have paddles for feet, though, you should look elsewhere; the fit is narrow. THE VERDICT: Meet the mid-hiker that feels like a slipper. 15 oz
