The Scarpa Gecko is a classically designed approach shoe with excellent hiking ability. The Vibram Reptilla SR outsole of the Scarpa Gecko proved to be sticky on all types of rock and improving with wear. The midsole, features dual density cushion without sacrificing that ultra-stable feel. The low heel drop, straight last and relatively wide platform provides great stability even on the most angled slabs and the to-the-toe climbing shoe lacing pattern firmly plants the forefoot. The soft suede upper breaks in fast without breaking down over time, and the recycled polyester lining works with the uppers’ mesh panels to keep your foot comfortable in warmer temperatures. Scarpa's Gecko features rock-boot style forefoot lacing, a durable rubber rand for toe protection and durability.
