Helix Men


My vote: None ( 5 avg )


One of the all-time classic shoes, everyone knows the SCARPA Helix. This is the latest incarnation and it remains one of the most popular shoes in the line. The original, classic randing of a flat profile over a relatively symmetrical footprint are all retained. Now we see more comfort and refinement built into the shoe than ever before with addition of a padded tongue, and a heel cup that is inherited from the more advanced Techno family. Improved adjustability of fit is a new feature with lacing that runs further down toward the toe. The Helix upgrade is completed with the addition of Vibram® XS Edge rubber.

Comfortable for hours (I have wide feet)
Double heel straps
Not very aggressive
A little slippery indoors at times
I’ve used it a bunch
Kind of a noob but I would vouch for my review

I've had these shoes about 6 months now and I actually really like them. Personally I like lace ups better because I can get more even pressure on my feet. I also have extremely wide feet, and lace ups allow me to leave more space for that.

They are not very aggressive but that also makes these shoes very comfortable to walk around in at the gym or crag. Even though they are not very aggressive they still hold well on the toes but may require a little more energy from the foot to keep you up.
