- Additional Information: Built for runners seeking a more supportive yet minimal shoe for rugged runs in the alpine, the SCARPA Ion combines an air mesh upper with a synthetic leather exoskeleton for superb lateral stability and a protective toe rand – excellent for dealing with rocky trails and talus. Underfoot, a 14mm heel counter and an 8mm forefoot, combined with a 1.2mm high-density EVA trail plate, balances a minimal feel with excellent trail protection. A partial integrated stretch tongue gaiter underneath the lacing/tongue area helps keep trail debris out of the shoe, and a heel rand helps offer a responsive, performance fit. On the sole, a sticky rubber compound aids traction in alpine terrain. Available in men’s and women’s fits.
