New boots..touring. Any concers

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Needed new boots. Current rides were too soft and had some shin pain.
Worked with a boot fitter and narrorowed choice to Lange rx 130 and salomon 130. The langes gave some pressure on the front of the foot but the salomons felt great. Stiffness felt close. Then he informs me that they had the release....so these were the quest 130 touring boot. I articulated my concerns but he convinced me based on various factors the quest was the best choice for me. He as pretty solid in his knowledge.
I don't hike much as a primarily east coast skier with the one trip per year out west. I ski aggressively but not off piste. I am really looking for much better stiffness and control then I am getting from my tecnic 90 flex.
Should I be concerned with a touring boot. He also said the max pro was not being carried his year because they had a lot of complaints last year with regard to foot issues.
Thanks,
Frank

should be fine.   The walk mode is a bonus,   no real detracting.     Better to stand around, walk to/from lifts, and up stairs AS WELL AS for real touring.
