Earlier this week, I visited SCARPA’s (surprisingly large) North American headquarters to talk with SCARPA’s CEO, Kim Miller, and we had a great conversation that we’ll be releasing in two parts.
Here in Part 1, Kim and I discuss his impressive career in the outdoor industry; SCARPA’s philosophy of ski boot design; their position within the market; the specifics of the new Maestrale XT; Kim’s thoughts on boot/binding compatibility; and more.
We recorded our conversation in their beautiful showroom, so if you’d like to see the dozens of boots and shoes that we were surrounded by, subscribe to our YouTube channel to watch the video of our conversation, which will be available soon.
