When the time comes for a new pair of boots, how do you shop? Believe it or not, there is a right way and a wrong way. There's a good chance you may need to try a new technique. After all, why do you need new boots in the first place? A little research goes a long way. There is a different boot for every use, so it's important you go about this methodically.

Let's take a look at the Do's and the Do Not's.

What most people do:

  1. Buy the same pair as the ones that just ripped open and crumbled beneath your toes.
  2. Do a Google search and find the first pair that gets good reviews.
  3. Ask your buddy what he wears.

What you should do:

There are several reasons why you should not do any of the above when picking your next pair of boots. We'll get into all that another day. Today our point is this: Scarpa is not what you just wore. Scarpa won't show up as the first pair of "tactical boots" in Google. Your buddy probably doesn't wear Scarpa.

Scarpa deserves a lot more attention than it generally receives. These mega-tough boots are durable, comfortable, and made with high-quality craftsmanship. They have some really cool, unique technology that definitely calls for some legit consideration.

The Kailash GTX, for example, is a badass bundle of technology. The ankle support systems alone make it a perfect choice for daily abuse. The high-quality suede upper is strong and weather-resistant. Best of all - NO break-in period! Check out a quick overview, and check out the rest of Scarpa's line. You'll kick yourself when you find out what you've been missing!
