Scarpa Rapid notable features

The Rapid is a Scarpa gear that connects the divide between running shoes and approach kicks. It is built for speed and agility with its flexible and lightweight construction.

Underfoot protection is courtesy of the hiker’s compression-molded midsole. Getting a secure grip over treacherous terrain, on the other hand, comes by means of the Vibram Agility outsole.

Size and fit

The Scarpa Rapid is a generally true-to-size, low-top approach shoe for men and women. It comes in standard width in half and full sizes. Allowing owners to get a customized lockdown is the footwear’s ghillie lacing. The extra pair of eyelets at the ankle line allow for a snugger collar fit.


Megagrip outsole, this approach hiker from Scarpa offers enough sticking power on various types of outdoor surfaces. As it has multi-directional lugs and triangular grooves, wearers can navigate the more slippery parts of your route with enhanced slip and skid resistance. This hardwearing rubber component also provides additional bump protection outside surface traction.


The Scarpa Rapid grants sufficient underfoot protection and stability with its molded midsole made of EVA (ethylene-vinyl acetate). Its tapered construction gives the shoe a shock-absorbent heel and a svelte overall profile.

It comes with a removable Ortholite footbed. Its presence doubles down on comfort underfoot. It also controls odor buildup, thereby preventing stink.


The Rapid's low-cut upper is a combination of polyurethane, mesh, and micro nubuck. It comes with a partial rand at the toe for additional protection against cuts, scuffs, and scrapes. To help users get into and out of the shoe with relative ease, Scarpa gear crafters engineered its heel with a sturdy pull tab.

The hiker’s closure system features lace holes that are a combination of plated eyelets and fabric loops. Its flat lace is made of a heavy-duty synthetic material.
