For breathable, water-proof protection you can always rely on Gore-Tex. That's why the Vortex from Scarpa employs a Gore-Tex lining from the Extended Comfort Footwear range to give your feet comfort and protection in all weathers. With the well proven Vibram Dynatech2 sole unit you'll find your feet remain stable even if the terrain does not. The sole unit is designed to absorb shock, thereby reducing fatigue and leaving you free to hammer out mile after mile. This is a very lightweight shoe, but that doesn't mean it won't stand up to the test, after all its been hand made by Scarpa - a sign of quality!
