New shoes

My shoes, a pair of Andrea Boldrini Scorpios I got on the Out door trade show at Friedrichshafen last summer, are totally worn out by now, so I bought a new pair yesterday at KC. Not the same, as they weren't available, but a pair of Panteras instead. The only difference seems to be the zip, but an odd thing is that I had to go down one full size, from 43 to 42, even though they're supposed to have the same last. Strange...
Obviously I was pleased with the performance of the Scorpios. Very sensitive and comfortable with great traction. The only negative was that I found the heel was a bit too soft, at least for someone as big as I.

According to Christophe at Andrea Boldrini, they had a contact who was supposed to start importing to the US but: We don't have news from him since 8 months.I think, now for US we have to find somebody else or sell the shoes directly. So, the best idea is probably to get contact AB directly. This could be a business oportunity for someone!
