Media Love for SCARPA’s New Alpine Running Line

Jun. 8th 2016

In the mountains, running has evolved. Throw in technical trails, a few thousand vertical feet, a little scrambling, and an activity humans have done for both survival and sport for millennia takes on a whole new dimension. Now infused with elements of climbing, peak-bagging, and route-finding, running has become one of the more incredible ways to explore the mountains. And it was with the goal of building product for efficient movement in rugged terrain that SCARPA completely redesigned its running shoes for 2016. Two years in the making, the SCARPA alpine running line is more functional and effective than it’s ever been. From light-and-fast ascents to the after-work jog on the local trails, these shoes get you moving. The new line is comprised of four models, the Proton and Proton GTX, two deep-lugged shoes for long, but fast days with bigger loads, the Neutron, an all-purpose trainer ready to take on anything, and the Atom, a minimalist, low drop race shoe. And so far the response has been even better than we could have hoped for. Learn more about what the media has to say about SCARPA’s brand-new line of running shoes below.

“Testers were pleasantly surprised by the responsive cushioning underfoot and smooth ride. The Vibram outsole and widely spaced lugs do a great job at grabbing everything from dirt trails to slick rocks. The traction, along with the protective upper wrapping feet securely, inspired confidence going both uphill and down.” Competitor.com
