ABOUT US


Hi, Liz and Pip here.

Thanks for visiting us and wanting to know more about Scarpa - we feel extremely privileged daily to provide what we think is the preeminent shoe and accessories experience in NZ.

We are a proud small NZ business with roots firmly based in premium european craftsmanship. We purchased and took over driving the business 4 years ago with the intent to continue the legacy of our parents, but also to evolve Scarpa into something that is uniquely - well, us. We are an extremely small passionate team who remain laser focused on what we are good at and what we know our customers love - the best of global brands, curated for NZ women with discerning taste and a desire for fashionable comfort that just fits.

We think we have the best customers in the world who shop with us over and over again - we pride ourselves on the fact that we are a repeat purchase business with one of NZs strongest retail brands. We are unapologetically quality, comfort and fashion focussed...and repeating this over many years has lead us to be highly regarded when it comes to the most important retail skill of all - creating trust. Our customers trust our expertise and love our brand having recently given us one of the highest retail brand scores* in NZ.

We are super excited for 2022. Strategically, we will embark on further investment and focus in our customer facing areas - scarpa.co.nz, our stores in Newmarket and Commercial Bay. We will continue to invest in our people and our staff, ensuring our engagement and wellbeing is prioritised. And we will expect to exceed customer expectations - always. Scarpa shoes are always effortlessly sophisticated, contemporary with comfort and just plain cool - perfect for that down-to-earth dynamic woman who dares to take the initiative. We look forward to greeting you in one of our stores or online very soon.

Love Liz and Pip
