/ Scarpa Maestrale re-sole
Where do folks suggest I get them resoled and has anyone had similar issues with Maestrales?
My clips fell off in very compromising terrain. I was not a happy customer. The shop repaired but Scarpa didn't give a shit.
........and met 2 other folk on the same route who had also lost clips from Scarpas. Won't buy Scarpa again despite the fact they were comfortable when intact.

Fortunately I heard about this issue and checked mine.
maybe post a pic and could be worth asking the folks at wild snow to see if this is normal wear and tear or a known fault.
How many days of use? Purely skiing or climbing too? The (vibram??) rubber on my Radiums if a good half centimetre thick and shows hardly any wear after 3 seasons use.
just to add i haven't really heard about ski boot re-soles, so this would seem a rather drastic step.

I think you're right. I'm down in Aviemore tonight so I'll pop into Mountain Spirit where I bought them and ask their advice. The boots were bought in Jan 2011 so to be so worn so quickly seems wrong.
One long walk-out through Cairngorms granite cosmetically lacerated the toe and heel end soft rubber and plastics surrounding the Dynafit inserts on my Spirit 4's. I discussed this with someone last year who'd had the same experience with Garmonts & they always carries a pair of trainers when Gorms touring now.
If you feel the need to talk to someone, there's always Scarpa UK after sales ->

I had no end of trouble with soles disintegrating with Garmont Mega Rides. During this time I was a regular customer at Lancashire Sports Repairs. http://www.lancashiresportsrepairs.co.uk/ David is the main man.
I have Maestrales now and have been OK for two seasons. I do take light boots if I am going to be walking much.
