I know they tried to market it in the US several years ago and I think it just didn't take off like they were hoping for so they decided to pull the plug.

I know one thing their Star Wars looking boots were hideous.

You should be able to order direct through their GB website (or any other euro Scott site)!

Thanks.I have no problem finding them here(Greece).I was just surprised by their absense in the us market since they are a large company and US is the biggest moto market globally.

I think that Matthes did a Racer X podcast with someone from Scott or someone that has worked for Scott and they talked about it. They talked about Scott selling gear started conflicts with their business partners in the goggle sector.

Im sure someone knows exactly who it was!

It is direct competition with distributors and their gear companies (WPS/FLY, TuckerRocky/ANSR, MTA/SHOT) That was the issue a few years back when they tried.

I've never seen a pair in person and I'm fine with that lol. I wonder what they did with them? They obviously didn't sell well. No use for them outside of moto. Trash? Recycled? Liquidated back to the country they were made?

I kinda liked the genius boot, they were pretty comfortable all around and i'm not gonna lie I thought they looked cool as hell and still do hahaha. My only qualm with them was that the shifter/footpeg/brake feel just wasn't as good as most other highend boots.

I'm the dude, man.

That was Primo from Scott on the podcast. He also talked in the podcast about destroying piles of the genius boots that no one wanted.
