Think big days, long miles and lots of vertical – the Epic is about going the distance. Built for long approaches, fastpacking, and ambitious hikes, the Epic is a hiking shoe that balances trail running technology with approach shoe design and light trail functionality. Abrasion resistant uppers, sticky rubber and outsole toe randing keep the shoe protected in off-trail situations, while the light hiking support and trail running style chassis allow for moving fast in all kinds of backcountry conditions.

Sizing

SCARPA Sizing Chart

Measure your foot with a ruler, using cm or inches; convert to Euro or US using this chart. If you need mondo sizing, please refer to the SCARPA chart on this page/tab. We recommend you purchase two sizes, the size you think you are plus one .5 size bigger for fit testing at home. As long as the products are in like new condition and the packaging is 100% intact, we will credit you for the returned product.

General fitting rules depend on the product's intended use... follow the appropriate guidelines below for best results.

Trail/mountain/approach/lifestyle products:

  • The bigger/heavier/more supportive the product, the more you may want to upsize .5 - 1full size. Lighter, softer, more supple shoes can be sized closer to your measured size.
  • Note: SCARPA Plastic mountain boots all use UK sizing; UK converts easily: 1 full size smaller than US men's size, 2 sizes smaller than US women's size.
  • Try on with appropriate socks for your usage. The bigger the boot, the more appropriate a bigger sock (sounds crazy, huh?)
  • If you use orthotics or already have aftermarket footbeds, measure against the standard footbed in boot. Fit into boot for sizing/fitting the boot.
  • Best to try on at the end of the day when your feet are larger/swollen, than when your feet are fresh to ensure good fit after a long day.
  • Lacing can play an incredibly important part of a good fit. Be sure to play with lacing when analyzing fit.
  • Make sure your heel isn't slipping.
  • Make sure your toes aren't hitting the end.

**Approach shoes may be sized smaller for performance purposes but beware... small shoes are really uncomfortable on the trail.

Rock climbing shoes

  • From your measured size, you'll want to consider downsizing .5 - 2 full sizes. The flatter the shoe, the closer to your measured size; the more downturned/aggressive the shoe, the more you'll want to downsize.
  • The best fit is comparative between sizes and only you will be able to judge that, though an experience climber could offer good insights to your fit.
  • If it feels painful, it may break in... or it may not.
  • Pain sucks as a rule of thumb though and makes climbing miserable.
  • Only you can judge what's 'acceptable' discomfort.
  • Good fitting rock shoes shouldn't necessarily be 'comfortable' by walking/running shoe standards.
  • Look for looseness/bagginess in the toes and heel. Bagginess can mean 'slop' when climbing with feet perspiring, etc.
  • Toes should completely fill the toebox.
  • Heel should feel solid; like they won't pull off if heel hooking.
  • Any foot movement in new shoes will mean sloppy fit when broken in.

Ski boots

  • From your measured foot, convert to US size using the scale. Translate the US size to Mondo size using the SCARPA mondo scale (not 'true' mondo conversion)
  • Shell fit: taking liner out of the shell and inserting foot, toes touching end of shell but completely flat.
  • Should have 1.5 - 2 fingers of space behind heel and heel of shell (between 14mm - 20mm)
  • Too little space = go up one shell
  • Too much space = go down one shell
  • If not sure... fit test BOTH shell sizes
  • Put on a ski sock for gosh sake!
  • Use and orthotic? Put it the boot (after taking out the standard footbed).
  • Put foot in boot AND BUCKLE IT! You can not tell a boot fit without buckling it
  • This will pull your heel back into the heel pocket, relieving cramped toe space
  • Boots do pack out! A 'comfy' fit when new will mean slop later.
  • Regardless, your toes should NOT be pressed against the end of the liner
  • Get your Intuition liners molded! This provides THE BEST FIT available.
  • Any minor pressure points or space will be eliminated by molding
  • Find an experience SCARPA dealer for fitting/molding
  • Boot fitting is an incredible service and generally requires a service fee of varying amounts... it's worth it though!

    I love my Epic's, but having a wide foot (sixth toe), these are just too narrow. I'd even say they run narrow for a regular "D" width. Apart from that, they are a real winner. Sticky rubber, comfortable, durable. I'd just love to have a bit more width so I can wear them longer.

    Just picked up my second pair. The Epic is a great shoe for everyday hiking, walking, and travel. Have spent many hours walking throughout Europe and my feet are always fresh. Enough support for light trails/cobblestone. The Epic is a well build shoe that can take a lot! Will buy a third pair!

    Just returned from 100 miles under load at Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico. The Epic performed perfectly. Light enough to be comfortable all day, sticky enough to provide solid traction for the rocky scrambles. No break in period required. Coupled with a light low gator to keep out the dirt and debris, this shoe is the perfect back-country footwear.

    I love these shoes. I'm just about through my 2nd pair. I use them for desert and canyon hiking on the Colorado Plateau and find them just right; just enough support and tough enough to last several hundred miles. Just enough stick for slickrock slabs with a heavy load. The other rangers are using them too. A superb product.

    I have been wearing this shoe for 10 months now and it is certainly my most comfortable footwear.  I have put hundreds of miles on them and wear them every day for all my approaches, trail runs and daily chores.  I've even done numerous 5.10 cracks in them. Thanks Scarpa for another quality product.                                           Ja y Smith
