Scarpa Spin RS
265g (UK 10)
Three or four seasons ago Scarpa shoes were a bit unforgiving. Today there’s a much more flexible feel to proceedings. Still true to its mountain roots, the Spin RS is a solid, harder feeling shoe, but today there’s a responsive feel once you take them off-road. We put these shoes through their paces on some pretty sticky surfaces and as long as you’re a forefoot striker, you’re on to a winner. For a narrow looking shoe, there’s plenty of room in the toebox. The Spin RS is light, with a sock-fit and Vibram outsole, so you feel secure at pace. The 8mm drop makes the RS very easy to get on with straight out of the box.
Verdict: A shoe that really encourages you to drive off your toes.
