I am now onto my 4th pair of Scarpa boots and these must be the 3rd version of the sl I have worn. I am very pleased with the updates to what I had considered to be the perfect 3-4 season boot.
As ever with any Scarpa footwear I have owned the build quality and materials used are exceptional. My new sls are lighter in weight than before and the redesigned, more flexable cuff which I was initially sceptical of, has proved to be as supportive as before but more comfortable. THe sole is unchanged from before so I'm expecting the usual long life associated with Vibram. All in all Scarpa have fulfilled all my expectations with these boots. 10 out of 10.
I was really quite impressed with these boots, they were comfortable straight from the box without a lot of breaking in needed,they offer very good support and of course they look good. I like to do a fair bit of mountain walking and I always pick the tougher routes and these boots really do the job, they have a tough rigid sole which really help on steep inclines.
Only have these a short while, but I like 'em. Good, high end mountain boots. Lovely deep thread which gives great confidence on steep ground. Quite stiff, so they will take walking crampons. Very comfortable from the off, but the stiff sole means you will have to tie them them tight or your heel will lift when walking and will rub. I have marked them down one star because previous boots I owned had a rubber rand around the sides which gave them a lot of protection; these ones are missing that feature.
