Does a little bit of everything.
Blurring the lines between day hiker, approach shoe, and everyday sneaker, the Scarpa Women's Rapid Hiking Shoe is hard to define. So instead of trying to put a label on it, why not just focus on how it blends climbing prowess, lightweight cushioning, and low-key style to create a shoe you can enjoy wearing everyday?
The sticky sole will surprise you with how well it adheres to exposed rock, while the cushy EVA midsole soaks up vibrations like a trail runner. Meanwhile, the breathable mesh upper keeps your foot dry and cool when hiking trails or strolling around town on hot days. And with an ingenious webbing clip-in at the back that attaches to the back of your climbing harness, it makes an excellent choice for reaching distant crags.

- Fit: True to size
I wanted to love these shoes. The fit is really nice, and they look really nice too. But as I was walking around the house to make sure they were perfect, they kept pulling my socks down my heels, so I ended up with a bunched up lump under me heel. I tried 4 different pairs of socks in different weights from light to thick and 2 different shoe sizes and the same thing happened. Boohoo. They'll have to go back.
