‘A proper sturdy, three-season fabric boot makes an ideal hill and mountain walking all-rounder with a narrower fit than Scarpa’s other boots’
Outdoors Magic: Sturdy feel, strong build quality, grippy Vibram sole, stiff-ish underfoot, narrower fit.
Outdoors Tragic: We experienced a little heel lift on steep ups. Possibly vulnerable to scree damage.
Outdoors Grabbit? ThePeak GTX is a bit of an old school, three-season fabric boot with a decently stiff, supportive sole and chassis and reliable Scarpa build quality. Its USP is a narrower than usual fit for the brand with a slimmed-down forefoot and instep and narrower heel, so even if Scarpa don’t normally fit your foot shape, these might. Our only misgiving was a little heel lift on steep climbs, so check the heel fit carefully before buying. Otherwise a good all-round hill walking boot, though personally we find the slightly more expensive R-Evo more comfortable.
