As part of our Green Manifesto we have pledged to reduce the environmental impact of producing our footwear. To do this we have produced some new shoes made with materials from recycled content – The SCARPA Planet Range.
The Planet range started with the Mojito Planet which was introduced last year and continues with three new planet models – The Mescalito Planet, Mescalito TRK Planet and Spin Planet – introducing the Planet philosophy to the approach, walk and trail running market.
These new Planet models represent the future of SCARPA – high performance shoes made with recycled materials.
The Planet range has been introduced to provide an eco friendly alternative without sacrificing the performance of the shoe.
The Mescalito TRK Planet is designed for long hikes with a heavier backpack, this model combines the best technologies and sustainable materials with comfort, support and stability.
This boot features the new Gore-Tex Flux membrane, which contains 98% recycled fabrics, and a Vibram Ecostep Evo compound sole, with 30% recycled rubber.
The next step in our sustainability journey, the Spin Planet introduces a new concept into the Trail Running category with the upper fabric 100% made from recycled materials while the EVA midsole is 45% recycled and the rubber outsole is 30% recycled.
The ideal shoes for those who are pursuing long distances on the trail thanks to the midsole volume designed to absorb impact and provide protective cushioning.
The Mescalito Planet is the new green benchmark in technical approach and via ferrata footwear. The innovative Perspair® fabric is high performance, lightweight and breathable: it’s made from a single-piece upper with recycled yarns and combines functionally different zones with abrasion-resistant PU TEK inserts.
The EVA midsole is 45% recycled, while the rubber in the toe rand has 20% recycled rubber from production waste.
