Are there any X-Country boots that will work with my AT (Silvretta Pure) bindings? I have Scarpa Matrix boots and am looking for something that has even less downhill-type rigidity... i.e. a X-country boot. Trying to see if something like the Rossi BC X11 can be adapted to fit my AT bindings. Any help / advice appreciated (other than buying a X-country skis, boots, and bindings!)

No, A/T and 3-pin bindings are NOT compatible. However, these boots are compatible with telemark bindings.

They fit in my silvretta 404's, but the flexible sole really hurts your feet when interacting with the toe pivot of AT gear. AT bindings won't release right with flexible boots like climbing boots or tele gear, and skiing in them is the devil. Find AT Boots with a releasable walk control which allows you to lock shin support for downhill.
