Scarpa Nepal Walking Boot
Reviewed: 20 April 2010
One of the best walking boots on the market
My previous boots were Burma pros supposed to be for the broader foot (and they squeak)
Well the Nepal's are fantastic really good fit really good width and plenty of volume for your toes to move in. The quality of the upper is first class much better than the Burma's. The fit of the ankle system fantastic.The Scarpa system that allows the angle to flex forward is really good the Burma's rubbed me unless I slackened the laces, both boots never gave me blisters though.
Mine are all waxed up and they don't let any water in
A first class boot
Can be hard to get hold of
Insole is a bit pants (better in the Burma's)but nothing that Super-feet can't sort out, but with the originals they can be quite hard (not much cushioning)
While the flex forward is fantastic the movement back wards is quite stiff but I suppose that provides more support
And if you read some of my other reviews I do not see Mountain Boot company (Scarpa UK)as a good thing.
Best walking boots I've had
Fat Feet would recommend this product

VERY COMFY SO FAR
Comfy, Sturdy, take everything that I've thrown at them so far. Love them.
Needed careful lacing to fit my foot (cheers Parky) Not the lightest boot around.
After about 200 miles these are great boots. Regular cleaning and proofing, (Nikwax Nubuck & Suede) I can't fault them, even in a foot of water, my feet were completely dry! If they fit your feet try them out. Got them for £85.

GREAT 3 SEASON BOOT
*Great protective rand
*High quality leather liner
*Chunky sole pattern
*High cut is supportive
*Not the lightest of boots
*Must proof regularly due to lack of gtx liner
I do most of my walking bog-hopping in the peaks so it was a bit of a gamble going for an unlined boot. I'm glad to say these boots have stood up to everything I've thrown at them. I've walked for miles in ankle deep bogs, climbed waterfalls and crossed streams and these boots haven't let a drop of water in. The rand is fantastic for scrambling and protective on scree. A great looking boot too. My first choice boot in all but the most wintry conditions.

really comfortable, good all round hillwalking boot! would recommend to everyone.
Ive had to keep on top of reproofing, and getting the laces in the right configuration to the shape of my foot for best comfort thats it!
Best boots ive had, also have scarpa manta and would normally buy and use meindl, but when these are gone ill get another pair.....Nuff said!

RECOMENDED FOR TREKKING IN NEPAL
Comfortable, Cool, Rubber rand protects boot and user from rough tracks.
Insole needed replacing because of odour.
Heel could be more aggresive for better traction on the lose stuff.
Good boot for warm climates, did the biz during a months trekking in Nepal.
