The Vortex GTX is a classic in the Scarpa range; tough and supportive, with the durability of a boot but the easy walking comfort of a shoe.
The most obvious feature of the Vortex is it’s chunky Vibram sole unit, exclusive to this model, designed to give fantastic mechanical grip on loose surfaces and wet, British ground. The bonded and lasted construction help add to the outright durability and strength, and of course it can be re-soled when the time comes.
The fabric and suede upper works in conjunction with a quick and free running lace system to make the Vortex one of the easiest shoes to get off and on, while still giving a great hold across the foot. The Gore-Tex membrane ensures the shoe is fully waterproof.
