After countless months of testing, today Luke is reviewing the Scarpa KAILASH GTX Boots.

Price : $219
Great trail hiking boot that I have been wearing everyone.
Available for men and women
Mid weight boot.
Combination construction : comfort flex mid sole - more flex at the toes than the heel.
Outsole is vibram.
If you are not accustomed to wearing boots like this, it may take some time for you to feel really comfortable with them because they lock your feet into the boot. Very padded.
These are a narrow fitting boot so you may need to go up in a size for the perfect fit for you.
I’ve been testing these boots out for the last 5 or 6 months and they have seen from what I’ve added up to be around 384 miles of hiking.
They have held up incredibly well and haven’t shown degrading. I’ve worn them in the rain as well as the snow and they excelled at keeping my feet dry, slightly warm and absolutely comfortable. Very comfortable out of the box.
They are light, comfortable, and supportive. As with most synthetic boots, there is nearly no break-in period. They are as waterproof as a rubber glove.
A commonly named favorite feature of the Kailash is the heel cup, which is said to eliminate blisters and hot spots.
