SCARPA’S Pebax Rnew AT and Tele boots, lower impact and higher performance

Feb. 10th 2011

Skiers are persnickety. We claim to be for the environment, but sometimes our quest for glory comes with a price. We want high performance tools of the trade, which are oftentimes at odds with environmental responsibility. Not to worry… in the case with some SCARPA ski boots, choosing high performance gear may also be the right call for the environment.

In 2009, SCARPA introduced its Planet Friendly program, which marked our most comprehensive effort at building footwear while minimizing our environmental impact.

From reducing carbon footprint, energy consumption,  or after-life impact, we are working with our suppliers to use materials and technologies to help us make footwear that really is lower-impact product.

Backcountry Mag gives SCARPA four Editor’s Choice Awards

Sep. 8th 2010

Backcountry Magazine’s first issue of the year, its annual gear guide, just came out, and the folks over here at SCARPA were psyched to be the recipients of four Editor’s Choice Awards for ski boots in the Fall 2010 collection – more awards than any other single boot manufacturer.

Boots that won awards include two ski boots in the freeride/alpine-touring collection, the Mobe, a tech-compatible, lightweight AT boot with serious downhill chops (see photo), as well as the Shaka, a women’s AT boot that’ll do it all – touring to area skiing.
