‘Scarpa’s Marmolada is a superb mix of all-mountain walking and scrambling ability, and blends lightness and comfort with alpine good looks. The excellent OutDry waterproof membrane is an added bonus.’
Outdoors Magic: Light, supportive, comfortable, walks and scrambles, OutDry waterproofing rocks, good all-round grip, slick alpine-style looks. Good value too.
Outdoors Tragic: EVA mid-sole cuts weight, but won’t last as long as a PU equivalent. Too garish for some tastes.
Outdoors Grabbit? We’re huge fans. The Marmolada is a stable, supportive, but deceptively light boot that’s great for both mountain walking and scrambling. It uses Scarpa’s benchmark technologies for great fit and comfort – think wide, but lower volume forefoot – plus the excellent OutDry waterproofing technology works better than anything else we’ve tried. Uppers have proved surprisingly tough so far, but the lightweight EVA midsole cushioning won’t last as long as PU equivalents if you’re bothered about ultimate long-term durability. Great boot if it fits your foot shape.
