Some things in life are hard to dictate. For instance, you could give a friend detailed instructions on how to make your favorite type of sandwich, but odds are they’ll mess up and use the wrong kind of mustard, or add too much tomato. Lucky for us, the Italians know how to make perfect sandwiches and ski boots for everyone, no matter how picky you may be. The Skorpuis CR boot was meant to replace the Spitfire, and man did they nail it. With a 68 degree range of walking motion and the smooth Spider ratchet closure system, the Skorpius goes up and down even better than its forebear. The number of lightweight touring boots has been growing in recent years due to the increased number of folks who see the benefits of lightweight gear. Now you don't have to compromise on performance or lug an ounce more than you need to into the backcountry-- The La Sportiva Skorpius boot is all you need for BC glory. The only thing missing is ski pants with a Hoagie pocket.

  • The SWING-LOCK ski/walk closure system is easy to use and stays in the mode you set it to.
  • Ramped toe inserts mean that Ski Trab Titan bindings can be stepped into without depressing the lever.
  • This boot has 68 degrees range of motion (33* back and 35* forward) for your walking pleasure.
  • A La Sportiva GripGuard boot sole makes rocky scrambles feel secure.
  • Compatible with Tech, AT frame, and even TR2 bindings.
  • Made in Italy.
