Who should buy the Scarpa Fuego

The Scarpa Fuego is a sturdy alpine climbing footgear built for the toughest backpacking trips. It's a solid option for you if you need:

  • a sturdy mountaineering boot suited specifically for foresters and wildland fire crews

  • a pair of high-cut boots providing great support and stability to cover miles and miles

  • hiking footwear securing a reliable grip on various types of terrain

Scarpa's aggressive traction

With the Vibram M4 Tech serving as the boot’s outsole, wearers gain a secure foothold over terrain types characterized by severe ruggedness. This aggressively lugged and treaded component is based on the mountaineering-specific Mont compound which grants it a level of performance in extremely cold environments.

The boot also has a protective tip thanks to the outsole’s forefoot extension.

Extra stable and breathable midsole

The Scarpa Fuego’s contoured midsole is one made of EVA — a foam possessing qualities such as high elasticity, stress resistance, and low-temperature toughness. 

Its cushiness is improved upon by the boot’s Pro-Flex XT insole. This removable footbed is also breathable, thanks to its perforated forefoot zone.

Complete protection in Scarpa Fuego

Scarpa engineers gave the Fuego a Crosta Pro HS12 leather upper, protected with textured leather overlays starting from the ankle line all the up to the boot’s uppermost eyelets. Its tongue has a seamless construction for debris protection. This sturdy upper is also imbued with the Taibrelle liner, making the footwear’s interior airy. 

Securely riveted to the upper are metallic eyelets the upper half of which are open hooks. The boot’s laces are completely synthetic.
