The SCARPA Manta is a mountain boot that has been an icon for over three decades.
As a multi award winning model in various generations it has represented the “benchmark” in 4 season mountain boots. Evolving over many generations, the new Manta Tech represents the 7th incarnation in a long line of market leading equity!
Built on the proven and very well appreciated FT last, it offers a unique and complimentary fit to other models in the mountain collection.
The outsole package maintains its stability with a proven, durable and reliable package that suits the workhouse nature of the boot and underfoot assurance is maintained with the outstanding Vibram Mulaz S sole unit.
The key changes however focus on the upper, where lines have been cleaned reducing stitching and materials facilitating the updated cosmetics, whilst maintaining a perfect flexation/support balance in the cuff area. The use of a larger heel pull tab facilitates easier access in and out of the boot, especially with a gloved hand. The use of the partial TPU rand, has helped with the optics, but also reduced some weight, alongside the new lace hardware. A key update has been to use the higher insulation of the GORE-TEX® Insulated Comfort, which will allow the boot to perform at a higher altitude and in colder conditions than previous generations.

Scarpa shoes and boots are built to the highest standard and should serve you for many years of use. However, just like tyres on a car, the rubber parts of a boot, shoe or rock shoe can wear down with use, and that’s why we offer a full re-sole service.
Resoling not only extends the lifespan of your Scarpa footwear, it also returns it to it’s very best level of performance.
