Product Overview

Built for the Steepest Terrain

Built under an exclusive collaboration between KUIU and SCARPA, the Rebel K 8 HD handles steep, vertical climbs and sheer descents with comfort and stability. They’re ideal for hunts when side-hilling and difficult, mountainous terrain are expected. Though they’re built for an upright landscape, their versatility of comfort will handle any terrain.

HDry Waterproof-Breathable Membrane
If you’ve ever had waterproof boot membranes fail, here’s why: normal waterproof boot liners are built as a loose, hanging bootie and layered over the inner liner, separate from the boot’s outer shell. This allows water to seep through the gap between the outer shell and the waterproof membrane, resulting in a loss of breathability, added water weight, and slow-drying boots. Once the boot is water-logged, moisture is forced through the membrane, wetting out your feet while you hike.

HDry creates a one-piece waterproof and breathable barrier by laminating the waterproof membrane to the inside of the boot’s outer shell, leaving no seams to penetrate or gaps for water to collect. This barrier prevents moisture from penetrating inside the boot and adds durability to the waterproof membrane. The results are improved breathability, no added water weight, and dry, comfortable feet.

Sock-Fit XT Tongue
Traditional folded tongue designs add unnecessary weight, uncomfortably bunch and pinch at the flex point and restrict mobility.

The innovative Sock-fit system by SCARPA incorporates high-tech stretch materials and streamlined construction methods, without tongue folds, to deliver a system that decreases weight, while enhancing fit and agility. You get consistent fit and feel every time you lace them up. Once you try Sock-fit, you’ll never go back.

Synthetic Upper
In wet weather, all-leather uppers eventually get soaked, take on water weight, and lack breathability. Once wet, leather is slow to dry, and once they dry, shrinkage normally occurs, causing an inconsistent fit.

The Rebel K 8 HD is full synthetic, so it doesn’t have the issues associated with an all-leather boot. Synthetic materials absorb less moisture in the system, they’re quick-drying, and don’t shrink while drying. Synthetic boots also require less maintenance and they’re lighter than an all-leather boot.

The boot’s sides, which are typically subjected to heavy wear-and-tear, are paneled with Super Fabric®—an extremely durable, synthetic material featuring ceramic dots which improve durability, while keeping it super breathable.

To trim weight without sacrificing durability, the boot features a hybrid rand. Full rubber around the toe box for flexibility and lightweight poly PU in the rear. This adds rock scuffing durability throughout the rand without the added weight of a full rubber rand.

Fit & Feel *Please read before ordering
KUIU SCARPA boots are sized with a mountaineering fit, which positions your toe at the end of the toe box. Most mountaineers prefer a tight fit for climbing, though it’s not ideal for hunting. For a comfortable fit, we recommend ordering a half size larger than your normal shoe size. If you’re between sizes, go up one full size. All boot sizes fit an average foot width.

*Example: If you measure size 9, order 9.5. If you measure 9.25, order size 10.

Traditional hikers flex throughout the shank, though they may feel comfortable on flat ground and light trails, they lack stiffness for front-point climbing and gaining purchase on steep and vertical terrain.

The Rebel K 8 HD mirrors the natural movements of your feet by pivoting at the ankle and only flexing at the toe. If you’re new to a mountaineering-type boot, they take some getting used to, but once you’ve experienced the stability, comfort, and added traction in vertical terrain, there’s no going back to a traditional hiker or hunting boot.
