Boot Review: Scarpa Light Ascent

These aren't Elvis' blue suede shoes.

Don't be fooled by the classy look of these blue suede shoes. In steep, semitechnical terrain, our tester deems them able scramblers, thanks to a sticky outsole, good lateral support, snug to-the-toe lacing, and durable all-leather upper and rubber rand. The toebox is tight, and the narrow last is strictly for low-volume feet.
