Now, if you are skiing in the stiffer boots because at higher forces they are in their prime working environment but, today you happen to be skiing at slower speeds, would you still be able to make good efficient turns?....
I would bet you could, and without flexing the boots significantly!
Again, this was my point here. It is not mandatory to be able to flex the boots substantially to make efficient turns. IMO
