Durability and performance for the Spin Planet from Scarpa

Scarpa has launched the SPIN PLANET, an eco-friendly and sustainable trail running shoe designed for long distances. This new version of the shoe is made from recycled materials, with an upper fabric made entirely from these materials. The midsole is 45% recycled and the rubber outsole is 30%. This shoe is ideal for summer running and is suitable for beginners and experienced runners alike.

The SPIN PLANET offers many practical features for runners who run long distances on trails. Its midsole absorbs shock and provides protective cushioning. With a 4mm drop and flared heel, it offers stability on varied terrain and comfortable cushioning for technical sections. Weighing only 580g for a men's size 42 (and 520g for a women's size 38), the SPIN PLANET provides comfort and style, whether you're new to trail running or looking for a recognizable shoe.

Co-design of the shoe with ski racer ambassador Hyllary Gerardi

For the development of this shoe, Scarpa chose Hillary Gerardi as its ambassador. Hillary, a professional mountain runner and athlete, is originally from Vermont in the United States and currently lives in the Chamonix Valley near her passion for trail running and mountaineering. In addition to her running career, Hillary is also involved in environmental preservation, including participating in litter pickup activities and supporting environmental organizations.

" Scarpa is a company that has always had its DNA rooted in the mountains and nature. When I started working on this shoe project, the team was very attentive to questions about sustainability, components, technical feasibility, how to reduce the impact of its manufacture... It's very innovative to have been able to make a shoe that meets all these criteria: technical, performance, light and sustainable with 100% recycled material for the upper and 45% for the sole. "

Hillary's track record:

  • 2018 Skyrunning World Vice-Champion (1st at Trofeo Kima, Tromso Skyrace and Glencoe Skyline in 2018)
  • 3 times winner of the Pierra Menta summer
  • 1st in Monte Rosa Skymarathon
  • Speed record Sentiero Roma, Italy, 2020
