Phantom 8000 (Size 6.5 Only)

Phantom 8000 (Size 6.5 Only)



The warmest, high-altitude boot Scarpa make, hand-crafted by Italian artisans who live, work, and play in the mountains.

It is the far end of extreme, for sure, and it is a pleasure to see just how far our boot-makers can take a niche model like the Phantom 8000. Reflective aluminum in the footbed with 37.5 material for moisture management and no-stink performance on long expeditions. We build in warmth with a thermo-moldable inner boot, 8mm EVA, and an aluminum film in the Schoeller Cordura-and-Kevlar-reinforced, integrated gaiter with Ourdry. Waterproof T-Zip closure and crampon compatible sole so there is no fiddling on summit day.

Over a century of experience goes into making the best boot for the harshest environments on the planet.
