        Both shoes split behind the toe box after only two day-trips into the backcountry. I had the shoes less than six weeks before the problems began. EMS did the right thing and returned them.

          Comments about SCARPA Men's Crux Hiking Shoes:

          As a professional climbing guide I have worn approach shoes on a more or less daily basis for the past 30 years, starting with the original FiveTenny in the mid 1980's. I have used at least twenty different approach shoes from a variety of makers over that time. Some are better for climbing and others do better hiking to the climb. The Crux does both quite well and it looks like it will last longer than most approach shoes.

          The Crux is quite soft and light, with reasonably sticky rubber, making it comfortable on scrambles and easy climbs but awful in etriers (don't even think about aid climbing in this shoe). For such a light shoe it does remarkably well on long approaches. In fact, this has become my favorite dry weather shoe for approaches and hikes with a pack up to about 25 pounds.

          My feet are on the narrow side and usually fit La Sportiva lasts but not Scarpa ones. I tried this shoe only because there was a pair in my size handy. I did not expect to even lace them up but the fit of this shoe surprised me.

          I have very strong feet and I am fond of soft, light footwear. If you like a lot of support, this shoe may not be for you but, for me, it strikes an excellent balance as an overall approach shoe.

              One of the most comfortable pairs of shoes I've ever worn. I tend to get low back pain after several hours of standing. Purchased these as an approach shoe for a three-day climbing instructor program, which was almost three solid days on my feet, and never felt a twinge of pain. While I found them great for walking and up to class 4 scrambling, they're not the best for edging on light class 5 climbing. But this is a very small con. A very good deal for the price.

              Comments about SCARPA Men's Crux Hiking Shoes:

              These were a great fit and super comfortable right out of the box. I'm still waiting to see how they will hold up on the trail. Other reviewers indicate they might wear out pretty fast. I can say that the build on the Scarpa Zen's, which I also own, is much more rugged compared to these, which are much lighter and closer to a sneaker than a hiking shoe.

                Really great. I'm hooked on Scarpa footwear, my ZENs lasted 4 years of seasonal use. And the european sizing is great for in-between feet like mine. I'm a 43.5 = 10 1/3 and I've never had such a perfect fit from an American sized shoe.
