Scarpa Crux Air Men's Approach Shoe


Share on:

Cool Off

Some days, the hardest part of the climb is the approach but thanks to the Scarpa Crux Air Men's Approach shoe, scrambling up talus fields, bushwhacking through tight trails, and navigating slippery, steep terrain is easy as pie. Based on the famous Scarpa Crux shoe, the Crux Air is a lighter weight and more breathable version that is perfect for long approaches on hot summer days. A knit polyester mesh upper combined with a moisture wicking liner will have you wondering who turned the AC on while the Vibram Megagrip outsole gives you the extra friction you need to get up the approach slab. Need to bring your shoes up the climb with you? No problem. With this packable design, these lightweight trail shoes fit easily in a small day pack or can be compressed and easily hooked to a harness so that you can walk off the top in style.
