Here’s what happened: the recalled F1 Evo boots were melted down, fed to an improved boot making machine, and spit out into boxes. You can now have your boots back, which were the only ones that fit, we know! The improved F1 is virtually the same boot as the original, just without the misbehaving Tronic ski/walk mode mechanism. Instead SCARPA went with a tried and true F1 lever. They thankfully left the rest of the boot intact, which was working so well for those few months of the 14/15 ski season.
The Women’s edition of the F1 has a cuff and last (forefoot width) tailored especially for XX chromosomes. She shares the carbon fiber frame in the lower shell with her brother, making her equally adept at transferring power to the ski. Also shared are the durable Vibram soles, snug BOA lacing system, and incredible light weight. Welcome the F1 back with open arms.
Update 2018/19: The iconic Scarpa F1 is still ahead of its time but in order to keep everyone happy with shiny new boots, a new paint job was brought to the table along with some Recco hardware in the power strap.
