Scarpa has dominated nearly every footwear and ski boot category since 1938. Handcrafted in the Dolomites of Italy, SCARPA stands for Società Calzaturiera Asolana Riunita Pedemontana Anonima, which means Associated Shoe Manufacturing Company of the Asolo Mountain Area. Try saying that ten times fast.
They were early to pick up on the growth of mountaineering and climbing in the high alpine of the Dolomites. In order to continue to grow the sport, they incorporated specific features into their durable footwear to help local athletes progress within their sport.
Scarpa continues to boost their feature-rich boots and shoes. They are constantly developing the hottest skimo, telemark, and touring boots that fit a wide range of feet. More recently they have been incorporating a ton of carbon fiber into their Alien series of touring boots, while the Maestrale and Gea have now been outfitted with Pebax® Rnew® materials that are premium bio-based TPE Plastic made from the oil of the castor plant. Love to see what Scarpa has in store for us next!
