OK. I'm planning on buying a pair of Head Ezon 9.5's. My wife has a pair and she is happy. We both have wide feet and want a comfortable fit. This boot has an auto walk feature. When the boot locks into the binding the boot is locked into a forward lean position. I once had a pair of Technica Icons that I had to get rid of because of too much forward lean. It killed my claves. The boots I have now have much less forward lean and are better in this regard but also need replacing. I measured the forward lean of my wife's Heads and they have almost 1" more lean then my current boots. My plan is to remove the auto walk feature (very easy to do). This would allow me to cut down on the amount of foward lean. While I would gain less foward lean it would also allow the boot to move about 1/2 -3/4" from the cuff. Basically it would be like skiing with a manual ski/walk feature in walk mode. I wanted to know if this would be an issue. When I first started skiing boot compaines would make boots that flexed forward and backwards. Any thoughts?
