Scarpa SL Activ 2018
In recent the Scarpa SL had gone too far up the mountain for us becoming stiffer and heavier, for 2018 Scarpa have re-modelled the SL to be lighter and neater, they have also tweaked the fit to give more big toe room and better heel lockdown. They have stuck to the use of premium materials throughout by still using the Sherpa HS12 leather coupled to a top quality Vibram sole, the weight saving has been gained by using a mono density outsole that also provides extra cushioning and shock absorbtion. The luxurious feel is further enhanced with a heel leather heel lining. Comfort and movement are also helped with the addition of nubuc leather inserts on the upper.
Finished with a micro rand for added scuff and abrasion resistance and new bicomponent speed lace look set to make this latest incarnation a modern classic.
Scarpa have been making boots for 80 years in 2018 and the new SL Activ goes to prove that all their expertise and love of boot making is still very much alive - be prepared for a treat.
