These are my first pair of leather walking boots as usually go for a shoe,however have now had my boots for almost six months I have found them excellent. Comfy and totally waterproof, having given them a real test in snow up to my knees and very boggy moorland, my feet were totally dry. The neck around the ankle is soft and comfortable and the chap in the go outdoors shop was very helpful in showing how to tie the laces for comfort..I did however buy a men's size 8 as the ladies size was a...

With some excitement and eager anticipation, I decided to part with £130.00 for the Terra GTX, replacing my trusty old Scarpa Asolo Attack walking boots, thus purchasing my first pair since 1992. By God, what a mistake. The Terra GTX are hopeless. The alarm bells started ringing when the box arrived with 'made in Romania' written on it. The boots are light, cheap, flimsy, and, well, just terrible quality; I am struggling to believe just how much a renowned, brand name can compromise... (read more)

Bought these Scarpa Terra GTX boots in winter 2009/2010, I used them pretty much every day each winter for mega long dogwalking through all conditions, and done a fair bit of walking around hills and little mountains with them. Also used them as work boots for light carpentry and other outdoor work. So all in all a reasonably punishing existence for them. I would say I must have walked a couple of thousand miles in them. I was really really happy with them, they were super comfy, super warm... (read more)

If you want a boot for anything more strenuous than walking around the garden or along nice country lanes then don't buy this boot. I purchased a pair and used them in the Lake District for one week at the beginning of June. Despite proofing the boots regularly in accordance with the advice given by the sales assistant,and having walked no more than 25 miles in them, the boots look as though I've had them for years. I have had two pairs of Scarpa boots previously, albeit made of heavier... (read more)

After a terrible experience with Meindl Burma Pro I was recommended the Scarpa Terra and they are AWESOME.............apart from one fatal flaw..... YOU CANNOT RESOLE THESE BOOTS! Yes that's right, they have a Vibram sole but it is a direct injection moulded sole, that helps explain why they are so amazingly comfortable (and believe me they are amazing). This means that the sole will not come away from the boot (beats the Meindl hands down on that front where both soles FELL OFF mine!)... (read more)

Scarpa Terra GTX boots are very comfortable straight from the box, but be aware they are for light use only. I bought a pair 12 months ago and have worn them only occasionaly, two walks in the lake district and walking to work during the snowy weather last winter. The soles are now almost worn through, I contacted Scarpa and was told they are for "occasional use". I would be very surprised if I have walked more than 100 mile in these boots. (read more)

Immediately very comfortable for me to wear, but after one single walk in these boots the upper and sole started to come away from each other.
Abysmal build quality from a supposedly experienced manufacturer quickly losing their reputation. (read more)

Bought a pair of these in November 09, the black sole has peeled away from the main sole.
I have only used these to walk my dog on a daily basis but when we got the Snow over Xmas it meant walking in subzero temps and I suspect the water/ice got into between the out black sole and the main sole as its just peeled away.
With regard to comfort, yes I had the same problem as reported on here as well however an extra thick pair of socks helps your feet until these have broken in.

I've always been a great fan of Scarpa boots, great quality materials and incredibly well made. Unfortunately the same cannot be said of the Scarpa Terra GTX; they seem to have a significant design flaw!
The problem is with a stitched seam in the leather which runs diagonally across the first metatarsal (big toe) affecting the area between the MP joint and the Metatarsocunieform joint. Unfortunately this cut into me causing a great deal of pain, I have tried to persist in breaking in the... (read more)
