The Women's Epic Shoe by Scarpa. A hybrid technical shoe that balances trail running technology with approach shoe design and light trail function - a perfect balance between speed and all-day comfort.
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.

These were my 4th try on the perfect hiking shoe and unfortunately they were a fail for me. I think this would have been a great shoe, especially for my narrow feet, but I also have extremely narrow/bony heels and these shoes just rubbed my feet the wrong way. I had horrible blisters on my heels after both of the two short hikes I wore the shoes on (with the second one I tried heel inserts, they didn't help). Otherwise these were just what I was looking for in a hiking shoe, it's unfortunate I had to return them. The search continues.....
I love these shoes. They fit my narrow feet perfectly. The laces go down a long ways so it make it easy to adjust them to the perfect fit. They hold my foot securely so rough trails are never a problem. They are light weight so you're not lugging a heavy pair of boots up a mountain.
These shoes are great mud trail, stepping in the snow, working, running, play shoes!!! Super support and very durable and comfortable.
The shoe is exactly what I want, but it was WAY too big. I just love paying for shipping 3 times.
