Scarpa Kailash Trek GTX, a Boot That Can Handle Lightweight and Heavy Duty Hiking!

Scarpa releases a new boot that will bridge that gap between everyday lightweight walks to more serious and heavy-duty terrain.

Internationally renowned outdoor footwear brand, Scarpa, has just released it’s new Kailash Trek GTX boot, offering a perfect choice for walkers looking for a traditional style boot with modern materials and techniques.

Built on Scarpa’s wide fitting BX Last, the Kailash Trek GTX utilises a rich 1.8mm calf leather, weather protection from a Gore-Tex liner, and a protective toe rand for added durability.

All this sits on top of a Vibram outsole meaning the boot is perfectly at home both locally in our Australian bush, or internationally on your next long-distance trek.

Born and grew up in Wales but now a fully fledged Aussie. A passionate mountain biker, hiker and general nature addict. I’m also a bit of a muso and enjoy a good craft beer every now and again (probably too often).

I hope what we do here at Tyres and Soles will inspire people to get out there and experience first hand, the natural wonders that surround them.

So, pump up those tyres, don your favourite boots. Grab a mate, a partner, a pet… and head out into nature. But tell us all about it when you get back.
