(Pewter/Turquoise, 40) - The Women's Scarpa Spark Shoes are award-winning mountain minimal styled trail running shoes that are built for moving fast and confidently on rugged terrain. With the ideal balance of lightweight and trail protection, the Spark Trail Running Shoes from Scarpa feature a 6mm drop complemented by a nicely cushioned, molded-EVA midsole which is firm enough that it feels supportive, but soft enough that road running doesn't feel awkward. Within the forefoot lies a thin high tensile fabric plate, which is protective and flexible. With enough padding to cushion your rocky strides, this trail shoe provides an excellent introduction to the minimalist movement, all the while using more eco-friendly materials in its construction. The lacing system works to secure the midfoot for precision running on technical trails, loose ground and long descents. The Spark is also equipped with a partially recycled Speed Lite rubber outsole grips the mud, sand, or slick rock of your favorite running trail while the mesh upper and polyester lining (partially recycled) aid breathability and moisture expulsion to reduce blisters. The Scarpa Spark hit the sweet spot with finding a shoe that is not too minimal or too traditional.
