Have had these for 14ish years. With a grind/punch for the 6th toes, bones on outside of both feet, softening, and a slight grind in ankle, these have been pretty darn good. This is pre-EDT all black version. I can dance on the tables in St. Anton after a full day of skiing in comfort. For some reason, newest pair just isn't working for my shin. I have always felt like the instep is a bit too high for me and causing the tongue to not engage across the whole shin. The lace up liner in my new version seems to make it worse.
So question is: what boot is narrow ala a Dobie WC, but with a lower instep and similar tight heal pocket. I have proper chicken legs. No ankle, and calf starts high so whole leg shaft is super small. Could go with an extra mm or two in the forefoot.
I know the Dobie Pro 98mm version's heal pocket was too loose for comparison. Haven't tried anything else in a long time...
120-130 flex is probably where I end up, but given we cut the Dobies that is rather unscientific.
