  • high-cut waterproof footwear that will keep your feet nice and dry
  • a sturdy boot providing support and ultimate protection around the ankle area

Extra grippy rubber outsole 

The Mulaz S by Vibram is the outsole that grants the Charmoz traction on mountainous terrain. This resoleable outer layer is built to last and can withstand freezing temperatures.

This rubber outsole is also engineered with high-profile lugs — protrusions that bite into soft and grainy surfaces such as snow and scree. The lugs in the forefoot zone are made especially grippy to aid mountaineers during ascents where step-kicking is required.

Shock absorbing and flexible midsole in the Scarpa Charmoz

Cushioning, protection, and stability over rocky and icy surfaces are made possible by the boot’s multi-density midsole. A combination of EVA and PU materials, this midsole is both lightweight and durable. 

Scarpa Charmoz shock absorption

It is a one-piece rubber platform that runs extra thick at the base of the heel but tapers toward the forefoot zone. This kind of construction gives climbers shock absorption as well as the ability to traverse flatter grounds with relative ease.

Superior waterproof upper

The Scarpa Charmoz’s layered upper is chiefly made of fast-drying, synthetic fabrics from which the boot owes its breathability, lightness, and durability.

Scarpa Charmoz waterproof

The OutDry waterproof liner has a breathable design that wicks out moisture and dispels heat from the inside, leaving the wearer’s feet feeling clean and dry.

Smooth and effective lacing system

Secure lockdown is virtually the sole effort of the Charmoz’s speed lacing system which doubles down on fit customization with its set of D-rings and hook eyelets. Both the tongue and the back of the heel have pull tabs for a quick on and off.

Charmoz’s 360-degree protection

Reinforcing the durability and wear resistance of the boot is a rubber rand that completely covers the base of the upper. This defensive coverage also works in tandem with the footwear’s toe cap in protecting users from toe bumps and injuries.
