/ Scarpa Boostics Fault
I was wondering, has anyone had any problems with the rubber and fabric ripping on Scarpa shoes, specifically the Boostics?
I noticed it on mine yesterday. It's ripped clean down from the rim of around the heel (possibly due to trying to get them on) but it has ripped the fabric not the seam of the fabric.
Only had the shoes about 6 weeks and they've only really just broken in as I have only been using them lightly indoors
Anyone else had a similar fault?
He had a very similar problem with the heel falling apart on his Boostics and if I remember rightly he had sent them off to Scarpa who returned them saying there was nothing wrong with the shoe, he had simply bought them too small!!
I have not followed this up at all other than noticing your thread.
My Boostics are roughly one year old (and fairly abused) and the rubber at the heel has come away from the fabric, also the fabric around the ankle has ripped but doesn't really affect performance.
Mostly just wear and tear but I think the gap in the rubber at the heel is a bit of a design flaw. It gets caught on any sharpish heel hook and rips or pulled the shoe off when you weight it.
Probably won't buy these again though I loved them initially. Good toe box.
