Scarpa asks that all use of the Fall 2014 F1 Evo Ski Boots with the Tronic System be curtailed. Anyone—retailers or consumers—who has purchased the boots should return them to Scarpa for a refund.

Scarpa reports that the boot may unexpectedly switch from ski to walk mode in very specific circumstances, and the switch—while rare—could result in a fall and injury. Scarpa did not elaborate on the specific conditions that could trigger the defect, instead requesting simply that all the boots be returned to the store in which they were purchased for a full refund.
