Scarpa Kailash Lite: A warm-weather ally
If you are head-over-heels about breathable boots, then the Kailash Lite should serve you well in sunny pursuits. Yes, one of the main draws of this Scarpa piece is its ability to eject stuffiness out of the boot.
The chief suspect here is the hiker’s partly nylon, partly suede leather upper. Its exposed sections—those without overlays—pump out heat and moisture as you negotiate the course in front of you. The overlays themselves also help keep the shoe’s interior well-ventilated as they are made of authentic leather, which is naturally breathable.
In place of a waterproof liner, the Kailash Lite has a nylon one. Aside from keeping the boot light, this type of liner also promotes air circulation, allowing the foot to stay moisture-free for longer.
