The two screws on each boot that attach the ski/walk mechanism to the cuff can loosen or fall out, causing the mechanism to malfunction, posing a fall hazard and risk of injury to the consumer.
About 770 (In addition, about 160 were sold in Canada)
This recall involves the Fall 2022 F1 LT and F1 GT men’s and women’s ski boots. The ski boots were sold in black/orange/aqua blue color combinations. SCARPA is printed in white letters on the lower outer side of the boot. The model name “F1 LT” or “F1 GT” is printed on the upper right outside ankle cuff of the boots. Only ski boots manufactured in 2022 are included in this recall. The manufacture date is stamp molded into the cuff. To locate the manufacture date, the ski/walk mechanism must be placed in walk mode and the cuff pushed back. The lower circle has an arrow pointing to the number “22,” indicating the manufacture year.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled ski boots and contact SCARPA for instructions on replacing the screws. Consumers can either take the recalled ski boots to an authorized SCARPA dealer to have the screws replaced free of cost or request SCARPA to send them the free screws, including shipping, for self-replacement.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risk of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product-related incidents cost the nation more than $1 trillion annually. CPSC's work to ensure the safety of consumer products has contributed to a decline in the rate of injuries associated with consumer products over the past 50 years.
Federal law prohibits any person from selling products subject to a Commission ordered recall or a voluntary recall undertaken in consultation with the CPSC.
