‘green’ Telemark ski boots

Scarpa have released one of their traditional telemark ski boots (the T2) with a strong environmental ethos. From the company:

“The Eco is part of the new Planet Friendly range (for both men and women).  It’s a no compromise alpine touring boot that is the perfect blend between ski performance and lightness, and now, ecological awareness.  The Velvet Eco incorportes all the usual high end Scarpa features such as 3 ergnomic and seriously light buckles, the tried and tested Ski-Walk mechanism and the HRS system”

PEBAX Rnew is made from 100% organic renewable Caster bean and it’s 100% recyclable”.
