With a flat-lasted profile, sticky yet durable Vision rubber sole, and a plush leather upper that gives the feeling of padded luxury and attention to detail rarely found in a shoe designed for newer climbers, the Origin provides an ideal introduction to climbing. The best-selling Origin has been updated with improved aesthetics, an updated fit that improves comfort at the widest point of the foot, and Scarpa's PAF heel system.
PAF - An innovative heel system that helps both spread the force of the heel tension and increase the fit of the heel. The aggressive tension-rubber is interrupted behind the heel to reduce pressure on the Achilles tendon and connected with softer rubber, that works like a bridge and allows full adaption to the shape of the heel. The holes on the side indicate the tension applied, which varies between 1 hole for light tension, 2 holes for mid tension and 3 holes for strong tension.
Passive System - Classically constructed shoes developed for situations where dynamic support is not the primary focus.
Vision Rubber - SCARPA’s proprietary rubber, designed to deliver a balance of performance and resilience to the demands of a new climber’s unpracticed feet. Tacky, durable, and reliable across a range of indoor and outdoor uses.
