'The Oxygen GTX' name emphasises a new level of footwear breathability thanks to the addition of the revolutionary GORE-TEX Extended Comfort Footwear Surround membrane which now allows vapour to travel out through the sole of the shoe, thanks to clever new vents added to the insole and midsole which help actively pump vapour through the GORE-TEX lining whilst retaining the usual waterproof performance expected.
The upper is made using Scarpa’s high quality suede and mesh which includes the brilliant SOCK-FIT DVL tongue system. These elements, together, mean that your foot is wrapped in a protective, supportive and comfortable cocoon of GORE-TEX, leather and Shoeller material. There's a full toe rand to help protect sensitive areas.
The shape of the Oxygen is provided by the BN last (used on the CRUX and Vitamin) and comfort and adjustability are enhanced by the SOCK-FIT DVL while the AUTOFIT COLLAR keeps a snug hold of your heel and achilles area.
All of these features and technologies sit on top of a dual density Die-cut EVA midsole and a brand new Vibram Symbios outsole which holds its own on any demanding terrain.'
