Scarpa Rush GTX: Control emphasized
A snappy ride awaits you the moment you slip into the Rush GTX. Making such an experience possible is thanks to the following:
Dedicated stabilizer. Also known as DST Frame, this sole unit is a one-two punch—it stabilizes the heel while giving the ankle enough flexible support for twisting maneuvers.
Snug instep. The Rush GTX comes with a stretch fabric around the instep. This proprietary technology provides a glove-like fit around said region, providing an even more locked-in, bunch-free fit as a result.
Pronounced rockers. Front and back, the Rush GTX is highly rockered. Its forefoot is more aggressively designed than most, making toe offs more efficient and springier on flatter terrain.
The Rush family
Alongside the featured hiker, Scarpa’s Rush and Rush Mid GTX make up this mini collection. The former is the lighter non-waterproof counterpart of the Rush GTX. The latter, on the other hand, comes with a mid-rise collar for additional ankle support.
The Rush is ideal for hikes when moisture is minimally part, if not completely out, of the equation. In short, sport it during the spring and summer months.
Conversely, for wet-weather adventures, you may choose between the two remaining GTX options. That said, opt for the low-cut variant if freer mobility is more your jam than ankle security.
