    Same shell as the Classic. Throw a #12 tongue in that boot and you will be set.

    I'm a Bode fan, but the boot is out & looks dumber than hell.

    I don’t get it, it’s every prior Scarpa in the S/Lab colorway.

    you forgot about the gripwalk part, revolutionary!
    a positive attitude will not solve all of your problems, but it may annoy enough people to make it worth the effort

    Bode was the most fun guy to watch since Franz imo. The guy is still young and has a long way to go in life. He's just trying to make a living. Giving him shit for promoting anything is weak, really weak.

    Kitzbühel is coming up. They need to re-enact the fence jibbing episode with Bode in 4-Quattros . . .

    Similar to promoting the Freedom boots with Chris Davenport. I only know of one person who used those boots for skiing peaks.

    Alpine focused - hasn't Scarpa made alpine focused boots before i.e. Tornado, Freedom.

    That said, "clunky utilitarian touring boots" as mentioned above really understates how good their boots have been. Multiple generations of F1, the Alien, Alien RS, Maestrale, Freedom SL, many of these have been game changers or category defining boots. Just because every other manufacturer wanted to have an F1 too doesn't mean it was or is any less awesome. Their climbing shoes and mountain boots are also excellent. AND they make big sizes (31, 31.5, 32 ski boots, rock shoes and mtn boots to size 48) that I will always be thankful. Who cares how awesome a boot is if they stop at a 29.5 shell, that's rubbish.

    Obviously Scarpa have made a bunch of very popular and functional boots, that work for most people, and are deservedly successful because of it. I’m just unusually discriminating when it comes to the fit and skiing characteristics of boots, and in my experience Scarpas are merely adequate in this respect. Perhaps this’ll change, and Bode will be part of it, I just think that great designs are the result of inspired efforts by brilliant industrial designers, rather than name athletes. I’m always reminded of Sven Coomer’s “173 criteria and details that had to be attended to for every model in every size, so it would function correctly,”, and how it’s no accident that the Nordica Grand Prix/Doberman, Raichle Flexon, and Atomic Redster are such exceptional boots.

    There should be a joint sponsorship limited edition model boot and car: the Audi 4 Loko Quattro Scarpa BM edition.

    If you told me Scarpa don't fit you I would believe that cuz Scarpa don't fit me either but i think they sell lots of boots cuz they fit lots of normal people,

    to their credit Scarpa also spec real dynafit tech fittings, an intuition like liner and are 100$ cheaper than the dynafit boots I had to buy which net cost an extra 400$ ... i wish Scarpa fit me

    When Maestrale first came out the local Valhalla pure owner told me he had sold out 2 full orders of Maestrale, but he had a stack of the Dalbello Virus sitting there discounted/ on sale So I asked the owner wtf and he said "they just don't fit anyone."

    There is an awesome invalley dude around here. Real farmers boy. I dont know how he does it, but he leaves the house with his beat up kaestle with king pins and a freedom sl and a 25l day pack and disappears onto the glaciers for 5days and then you meet him somewhere and he will tell you a 10min story where he has been and so on and so on..... must be the boots

    I bet he got them -40% on sale....

    I hope he gets paid big bucks for this endeavor. Dude deserves it for just keeping the WC entertaining. That being said he should have to work in the Scarpa warranty department for a season because nothing in my experience is as fiddly as Scarpa parts and break as often (in boots). The Maestrale did sell great, true, but geezus when you have to deal with SNA warranty on a majority of them it's painful. When those stupid metal hinges on the tongues were breaking we asked for replacements in anticipation of fixing them so people wouldn't miss any ski days. They wanted to charge us for the parts instead of just sending us bags of the stupid things with an apology, Same deal with the various generation of the "new improved walk mode"
