Affected products

This recall involves certain production batches of the Fall 2022 F1 LT and F1 GT ski boots (men’s and women’s) with “SCARPA” written in white letters on the lower outer side of the boot. Boots that were purchased before August 1, 2022 are NOT affected by this issue. 

The model name “F1 LT” or “F1 GT” is printed on the upper right outside ankle cuff of the boots. 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 manufacturer year.
