Designed for those ultra-serious trail runners, Scarpa Spin Ultra adds a bit more stability and cushion to the Spin line. They use Vibram Litebase technology to keep your feet on the trails without the added weight and can take on some serious terrain. Spin Ultra is creating some serious waves in ultra-running shoe standards.
Vibram should say it all. Scarpa is known for their aggressive, high-performance Vibram rubber soles, it is what sets them apart from trail running competition.
Scara Spin Ultra’s multi-directional lugs are a combination of Vibrams thinner Litebase technology and Megagrip compound, ensuring the best grip a running shoe can offer. Although the Litebase is 40 to 50% thinner, which cuts down on weight, it doesn’t affect the durability of the Spin Ultra design.
This ultra design from Scarpa has reinforced upper mesh that covers the whole shoe and is lined with polyester to aid in keeping as much debris out as possible. This feature also allows for better ventilation and drainage.
Furthermore, the micro-nubuck pattern within the mesh blends in with the lacing system, which is all part of a sock-like fit inside the shoe. The mesh also integrates into the TPU cap in the toe, which protects against undesired sharp rocks and other debris stubbing your toes.
Scarpa Spin Ultra works with a Sock-fit system to keep the shoe snug to the foot without taking flexibility and agility away from the shoe design. There is also added cushioning to the Spin Ulta, making it one of the more cushioned in their line.
This extra padding comes in the form of a dual Eva midsole layering that adds firmness for a better energy transfer while still offering enough stability and protection to keep your feet comfortable longer. Moreover, a 25mm stack works with Eva cushioning to maintain that high level of stability and comfort as well.
Spin Ultra’s added cut-outs for the ankle bones and a padded notch for the Achilles. The tongue is also padded with a gusset in the midsection to keep it from sliding around. All this extra padding is ideal for keeping you stable in rocky situations.
We could go on and on all day about this upgraded Scarpa design, however, there are other shoes on the list as well with just as much credibility. These run about average in cost as the rest as well. They are a newer version to 2019 Scarpa Line up and priced as new releases usually are. But we are sure once you get them tied, you won’t be regretting the buy.
