Normally you pay the earth to get a pair of boots that are light, strong and constructed with high performing technologies and this is exactly what you get in the new Scarpa Marmolada, but without the high price tag. The Marmolada has been designed as a boot that excels in the UK for general mountain walking, scrambling, long distance and trekking.
Traction is provided by the Vibram Mulaz S sole which coupled with the Scarpa Pro (4.5mm) midsole provides great stability, support load carrying and constant grip on nearly all terrains. The sole has a rocker that rolls nicely while walking but there's just the right level of flex/stiffness to support the foot whilst scrambling but not too stiff for short walks. The upper is built around the new BQ last, which is quite broad across the forefoot but with low volume, and is made from a combination of light yet extremely tough Schoeller L-Tech and high quality suede which is protected by a full rubber rand whilst comfort and additional support is enhanced by the inclusion of SOCK-FIT XT and to-the-toe lacing.
Inside the boot is where the new technologies comes into play; The new, highly breathable and waterproof Outdry lining is laminated to the inside of the boot meaning that we can use, the updated, Cocona 37.5 fabric as close to the skin as possible and all the way through the boot. This new process dramatically improves breathability, membrane durability, and waterproof properties and, if boots do get wet, then it dries very quickly.
All of the above makes the Marmolada Trek the essential all-round boot for the British hills, mountains, fells and climate.
Trail Magazine managed to test the Marmolada Trek before they were released and this is what Graham Thompson (Technical Editor) thought of them;
"Here’s a hiking boot that’s also suitable for scrambling, but do its claims stack up?"
"This is designed as a technical hillwalking boot that’s good for scrambling, and to that end it’s perfect. It is lightweight for its scrambling abilities, but lighter boots are available if you don’t need that level of performance. Lower-priced boots exist, but again not with such scrambling or walking performance."
