A slick looking walking boot, nice and rigid too so it clearly means business.
They certainly excel in rocker terrain rather than in lower wetter environments, and with excellent build quality will become great companions, only getting more comfortable with each wear.
A solid and supportive boot with some interesting modern touches, the Marmolada Pro OD is ideal for big British hillwalking rounds, multi-day backpacking on demanding terrain, classic scrambles and via ferrata.
They are expensive for their spec but can’t be faulted for their comfort or durability and Scarpa have struck a good balance between technical prowess and comfort.
While the soles proved to have excellent grip, I do think they’ll wear down more quickly than might be expected – particularly if you use them on lots of rocky routes.
-These Scarpa trekking boots are made with water-resistant suede upper with the Sock-Fit XT construction system for a snug, sock-like fit.
-It comes with a Drumiln sole powered by Vibram that is designed to provide grip on varying surfaces, wet or dry.
-The midsole is made of PU which creates a firm and supportive platform for the foot. They also come with low-density EVA inserts that offer extra cushioning and shock absorption.
The Scarpa Marmolada Pro OD men’s boot is a high-cut model with the Sock-Fit XT that unites the suede upper and the tongue as a complete piece, wrapping the foot inside for a snug fit. Even so, there’s a memory foam that enables the foot to move without feeling constricted.
It has a lace-up closure that locks off mid-way so you can adjust the fit in the forefoot and cuff separately.
Like most Scarpa shoes, the Marmolada Pro OD uses a Vibram rubber outsole that offers a good amount of lateral stiffness. This quality is particularly beneficial for navigating steep slopes or climbing edges when scrambling.
The Drumiln outsole has a medium lug depth that is widely spaced to prevent mud and dirt build-up in between. The heel breast has aggressive deep lugs for downhill traction.
As a Rated B1 boot, this can take only a C1 flexible strap-on crampon. And since it doesn’t have ledges on the rear or toes, a step-in crampon wouldn’t work on the Marmolada Pro OD.
The midsole is made of Polyurethane (PU) which is firmer than EVA and highly elastic. It is also long-wearing, shock-absorbing, and has a good amount of bending resistance.
The boot comes with a removable insert made of EVA to provide additional comfort and protection against impact. There’s also an anti-torsion system in the central section. All these features enable the wearer to navigate challenging terrains with fewer concerns over injuries.
The upper is made of water-resistant suede leather with a Sock-Fit XT construction system wherein the tongue, flex point, and collar come in one piece. This creates a sock-like structure for a snug feel.
This boot has a lace-up-to-toe lacing system that lets you adjust the tightness in varying parts of the shoe, depending on your needs. It locks off midway so you can vary the fit between the cuff and the forefoot.
