Is this a lightweight approach shoe you can also run in, or a trail shoe with scrambling ability? A jack of all trades (or terrains) rather than a master of any one, the Rapid would be a good choice for hands-on hill days and mountain crag approaches in the wet and muddy UK, says Dan Bailey.
In reply to UKC/UKH Gear: I would be interested to see how this, described as an approach shoe by Scarpa compares to the Ribelle Run, sold as a running shoe. There is an awful lot of overlap , and I wonder which is better on 'technical' terrain i.e. the Cuillin.
I like Scarpa a lot, but there range is hard to navigate sometimes - maybe a problem of too many choices!
