Deceiving purchase !
These particular shoes by Scarpa are made in China ! All my previous Scarpa were manufactured in Italy (one pair in Romania though). I don't buy "made in china" for practical as well as ethical reasons and that's also why I've been a long time fan of Scarpa. Therefore I can't recommend these shoes to anyone. Leaving this major issue aside, shipping and packing were perfect and I have nothing to complain about with alpiniste.fr.
