Scarpa Skark/Azure Gecko Approach Shoe
Gecko is the real Climbing Approach shoe where sensitivity, precision and grip are the most important features. The combination of a precise last, the extended lacing, a protective rubber rand and the sole with little pronounced lugs and climbing zone for an excellent sensitivity and grip, make GECKO the perfect connection between climbing and technical approach.
FIT: The Gecko has a precise and comfortable last. Once worn, the shoe is immediately wrapping but at the same time it’s comfortable. Extended lacing up to the toe for maximum volume customization and comfort fit.
Upper: water repellent suede leather upper to ensure durability and comfort. The protective anti-abrasion rubber rand on the toe is overlasted on the EVA midsole, for greater precision and durability. TPU protection on the heel that also works as a rigid and containing shell.
Sole: The new PRESA sole has a medium density compressed EVA midsole with solid and compact look. The outsole is made of a compound able to combine an extraordinary grip and durability. The large climbing zone offers excellent sensitivity, grip and accurate precision.
The most precise of the category: to confront yourself with previously inaccessible walls
Adherence, comfort, resistance and innovative construction.
The Gecko has a precise and comfortable last. Once worn, the shoe is immediately wrapping. But at the same time it’s comfortable, it looks like a glove, giving a very pleasant feeling from the beginning. Like the Spirits’ CA Last but slightly modified by thinning the heel and reducing the volume of the instep.
