I do have large calves. Short question - long answer. I like the flex of the boot as is. It is laterally stiff enough, and the flex provides the ability to be supple and accurate in the ankle. Because I can flex a great deal in my ankle, I end up flexing too much @ times - BUT, I don't think it is because the boot is to soft, I think it is because I start flexing from a fairly flexed starting point. Sooooo... I'd like to keep the flex range, but start from a more upright point.
I stood in a pair of lange world cups and can say that the forward lean is far less extreme in that boot.
