We talked with our fantastic customer service team here at SCARPA North America about the most frequently asked questions they get from customers. Take a look below to see if some of their answers will help you figure out what approach shoe to buy, how to take care of your SCARPA boots, and how you can get some free stickers sent right to your door.

So what makes an approach shoe…an approach shoe?

Approach shoes are essentially the most comfortable rock shoes you will ever wear. Designed for scrambling, technical approaches, and low-grade climbing, they have especially sticky soles and rubber toe rands for overall better traction on rock. Different types of approach shoes are developed to meet a range of needs and conditions.

Celebrating the Climb: Vitamin, Tech Ascent & Techno X

Aug. 14th 2014

Leaving the trail is only the first step. Boulders, talus, scree and slabs often make up the landscape that lies between our beloved rock climbing and our feet. For that, we know it’s best to have friction. Whatever the mountaineering objective, SCARPA wants you to scramble with confidence every step of the way.

That’s why we’ve produced three category-defining shoes—two approach and one climbing shoe—that are born from decades of experience and crafted through a culture that attends to detail like no other. The result: efficient, strong and comfortable shoes that will deliver you to the base of potential glory.
