Off-road runners may be unaware of this Italian mountain brand, however Scarpa have been designing an building footwear for everything from skiing to rock climbing since the late 1930's and are a go-to brand within these arenas. In recent years they have added running expertise to their design pool, allowing them to produce some truly excellent trail and off-road running shoes.
The Scarpa Spin is a running shoe created for speed. Designed for altitude trail running it is the benchmark in the brand’s running category in terms of lightness and performance. Made with a thermo-welded film in the upper and ultra-breathable fabric, it has no stitching, guaranteeing a super precise and safe fit with the possibility to wear it without socks. Resistance to abrasion and breathability give the best protection and performance. The midsole is in medium density EVA, specifically designed to provide cushioning on the heel and responsiveness on the forefoot. A shank made in rigid EVA is set into the front of the midsole and guarantees a higher energy return following the strike phase and consequently more responsive propulsion.
