I can't find much info about these?

It appears I have the same boot in brown.

Beautifully crafted by hand in Italy. The leather is very thick and stiff, but the forward flex is easy. It weighs exactly the same as my Crispi Svartisens. The toe box was too narrow for me, but since there isn't a rubber rand they have stretched out nicely.

Funny thing is the selller says they're made by Merrell, but Merrell was just an importer.

The four eyelets don't look right to me. I just can't get over that. Are yours a lot smaller than 43? Because they have 3, not 4.

I think I found your post where you said you put them in a boot stretcher.

They say Heierlings which may be a Northern European brand, but they most likely had them made by a small Italian boot manufacturer. But why does he say Merrell?
Yeah I didn't notice they extra eyelet on the black ones. Mine are size 46.

Turns out Heierling is a Swiss boot company that has been around forever and is still making boots.

T4 size 280 $175 on sale at Skinny Skis in Jackson Hole -- I don't know if they are interested in shipping, but if you are in the area and it is your size, it is obviously a screamin' deal.

Edit: Those T4 are gone. I think they had a few other Scarpa plastic 3-pin on big sale (limited size), but I wasn't noticing which models -- I'll update if I happen by the shop.
