Scarpa Wrangell GTX Mountaineering Boot - Men's
Got this boot for work I work off of ropes a lot doing scaling, drilling and other types of work related to rockfall mitigation. This boot is hands down the best boot I've ever had and I feel like a dummy for not listening to my friend who told me 2 years ago to get it. If you work outdoors get this boot you will not regret it.

Great boot! Great service!
This is my 4th pair of Scarpas. I use them for work day in and day out. They're comfortable, almost zero breaking time, have great ankle support, and they're TOUGH! I typically get a year out of them before I wear the traction off the soles.
This is my favorite model so far. Thank you Scarpa and thank you OMC for a reasonable price and getting them to me on time with free shipping.

Scarpa wrangell boots are heavy duty
These are an excellent mountaineering boot with very rigid ankle support and a nice stiff platform. They are not hiking boots for the casual hiker. I bought them for Coues deer, elk, and bighorn sheep hunting here in AZ. These animals hang in steep, loose, rocky terrain. The boots are well built and have a very aggressive Vibram sole. The rubber band is a nice addition. The leather looks like suede, but is much thicker and stiffer, probably nubuck. I used snow seal on them for breaking in. The Wrangells replaced my Meindl Alaskan Hunters which are very comparable. The main difference is that there is a lot of padding inside the Scarpa's, especially in the tongue and ankle. The padding actually holds my foot in place.
