Finding the Perfect Shoes for all of Your Adventures

Jun. 19th 2013

Arltey Goodhart has been an invaluable member of the SCARPA team for four years in the warranty department and is currently studying pathology and microbiology. He enjoys most styles of climbing – everything from from big wall to bouldering but big climbs that require full commitment and persistence are what he finds most rewarding.

Ah, springtime. Everything is fresh, new and the climbing temps are nothing short of perfect. As a student, spring grants me time to finally venture to the climbing spots I’ve had my eye on for the past semester. For me, springtime equals an agenda of multi-sport days that include climbing, running and biking.

The Relationship of Force: SCARPA’s versatile Force X rock shoe

Jun. 6th 2013

Forces only exist as a result of an interaction. Whenever there’s an interaction between two objects—a climber and a sheer rock face, for instance—there’s a force upon each of the objects. Contact forces are the types of forces that result when the two interacting objects are perceived to be physically contacting each other. So, it’s simple science that we’d make a versatile, can-do shoe that fully embraces the laws of physics; thus, the Force X.

26,320 Days SCARPA FACEBOOK GIVEAWAYS start this week

Mar. 27th 2013

To celebrate spring and summer and to ensure you’re spending as much time climbing and running as possible, SCARPA has launched our “26,320” month-long giveaway.

Over the next four weeks, SCARPA is hosting four product giveaways on our Facebook page. Simply head over to facebook.com/scarpana and click the “26,320 Giveaway” button in our Tabs menu to unlock your entry.

Why 26,320? It’s roughly the amount of days you have on Earth and it’s a symbolic reminder for making sure you spend as many of them as possible in the mountains. It’s also a benchmark number for our Facebook community; we have currently just fewer than 25,000 Likes. We would love for you to share the SCARPA page with your friends and grow our community to 26,320 and beyond.

Starting today with the new Spark GTX trail running shoe (for men and women) giveaway, a new contest will start each consecutive Tuesday until April 20. Fans will have the opportunity to win our newest Trail, Approach, and Climbing shoes.

Fans are encouraged to share the SCARPA contest with friends because we’re giving away a pair of shoes to one winner + a friend of their choice each week. Good luck!
