SL Activ Backpacking Boot

The Scarpa SL Active Boot has raked in more than its share of awards, including Trail Magazine's 'Best in Test.' Thanks to the addition of a flexible ankle cuff, Activ Fit technology, and a full rubber rand, it's poised to snag a few more prizes. Of course, the only award that really matters is the win your feet get when they spend a few trail days in these flexible, supportive, and extraordinarily lightweight boots.

The single piece leather upper boosts the comfort and durability of these boots while the PU midsole cuts weight and supports your feet to make sure you stay happy from trailhead to peak. With the added bonus of grippy Vibram soles these boots will see you through a multi-week trek or hard push through rough terrain.

  • Classic backpacking boot for long treks on incredible trails
  • Leather upper creates a classic mix of comfort and durability
  • Leather, fabric lining wicks moisture to help prevent sweaty feet
  • Vibram outsole grips slippery trails and holds up to years of abuse
  • PU midsole cuts weight and boosts comfort for long hikes
  • Micro-pulley hardware makes for exceptionally easy lacing

Phenomenal Boots

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 46

Phenomenal boots so far! I haven't had them long, and I'm currently in the process of breaking them in. They don't take much break in, either. I've always been interested in the Scarpa SL, but I've never been able to commit to them until now. About 10 years ago, I bought a pair of the SL M3 boots, but had to return them because I don't fancy the feel of 2x4's strapped to the bottom of my feet. Once the SL Activ was released, I tried them too, a couple times, but could never commit because they always felt just a little too roomy and sloppy for my feet. Now, with the latest version of the boot (the SL Active), they're definitely a winner for me. Notice the difference there; Activ versus Active. That's deliberate. That's a change that Scarpa has made in the naming. The most awesome thing about these boots now is the fully leather-lined heel area. I'm a huge fan of leather-lined Lowas and Hanwags, and usually buy them exclusively. So, I was extremely pleased to see that Scarpa has leather-lined the heels of this latest version of the SL. Besides that, think of it like this. If you've been hiking/trekking/backpacking for as long as I have, then you know what the gold standard of the 90's Vasque Sundowner meant to us all. This new version of the SL Active is literally the epitome of the answer to that, and still made in Italy as well. One more thing, also. Italian boots typically equals narrow fit. Think narrow, pointy, annoying toe boxes on Asolo 520/535. Not with these babies though. VERY nice wide and roomy toe box here; and very surprising for an Italian offering. Thanks, Scarpa! :-)
