Again, a warm welcome
You spell the name almost perfectly, it´s Olomouc with the university there. Incidentally, the city is not far from the place John Kerry´s ancestors came from...
As to the boot issue, I´m waiting for my Langes LR1 to come. Then one of the Austrian prominent bootfitters and the "father" of the Fischer Somatec boot Johann Leitner will have to work on it. I will ask him about his opinion on the rotary vs. lateral design.
While on the subject: a nice gimmick I saw in Soelden at the WC opening:
Anja Parson´s Salomons Course Labs with that hole pattern on the outside of the shell - the holes fewer but bigger (to be seen even for the TV-viewers?), while regular Course labs have no holes. I watched the shells in the Salomon Center there, so I don´t know how visible the holes are on the podium.
A great forum, anyway, although after a week skiing in the Alps it´s a horrible job to go through only the post I find interesting or relevant for me.
