What model boots are these?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

I need help in identifying the model and age of these Scarpa boots I intercepted on their way to the dumpster.

 

 

I just need to epoxy the sole back on the left boot, use an old pair of alpine liners and presto!  Free tele boots.  There is no model identification I can find on the boots.

 

Thanks,

stvbck

It looks like a very old Terminator T-1.  It was their top of the line tele boot.  The newer ones now have four buckles.  I am no expert, but they look like some of the original Terminators, which could make them close to 15 years old.

At least they lived a good and active life. The wear is consistent with many days of hiking and skiing. You should have probably allowed them a descent burial.

Thanks, that was my guess that they were Terminators.  The epoxy is drying on the other boot, they will be ready for snow tomorrow!

You're just jealous.

 

stvbck, those are sweet boots. No buckles missing or blown rivets!? The black ones were not the original Terminators, yours are barely ten years old. OK, maybe twelve. I would still be using those if I hadn't found out about "shell sizing" and got suckered into believing it matters. I just used really thick socks. I had replaced at least three of the four ankle hinge pivots and lots of the buckles before I retired the boot shells. I'm still using the liners in my snowboard boots. The cable on the middle buckle is easy to break. Enjoy! Those are the pinnacle of ski boot design.

You're just trying to butter up stvbck in case he does get good at epoxying and maybe even finds some smiley plates.

Haha, yeah. I scored some like new CRB 3pin w/ Hardwires from Axelbiker who I had talked into getting way back when before he drank the Hammerhead kool-aid and subsequently put the safety joints up for sale. Hey, sorry Chris, and... thanks!

Boots are back on the snow

 

Epoxy job successful, soles holding, two days on them so far.  The cuff rivets on one of the boots had already failed and the previous owner had installed replacements.  Buckles still o.k.

 

Free dumpster boots, in the right size, sweet!

 

And broken in too.

Dumpster good goodness. Well done. I've salvaged and use all manner of gear - poles, skis, goggles etc. that other people have chucked away.
