From the trail to the summit to the bar, I want a shoe that can do it all—and the Crux by Scarpa is that shoe. It’s got everything you could want: a webbing-reinforced forefoot for secure footing and control in steep alpine terrain, a cushioned sole for long approaches, and a rubber toe rand to keep those digits happy and increase the durability and lifespan of the shoe. These shoes were incredibly comfortable out of the box, and they’ve continued to go strong no matter where I take the next step. Available at Northern Lights and Timber Trails. $100; scarpa.com.
