Everywhere else is seems to say that Alpine...
Everywhere else is seems to say that Alpine DIN blocks are included with the Factors, but here on backcountry is states they are sold seperately. Is it that previously factors shipped with other blocks, but newer (2011?) factors come with Alpine DIN blocks and backcountry has older stock? Or is there another explanation?
The product photography shows the Alpine Sole Block. Black Diamond specs the boot as coming with the Alpine Sole Block. Every other retailer sells the boot with the Alpine Sole Block. I imagine it is just a typo, if not Backcountry.com has an awesome return policy... but I really think it is a typo, and was meant to "AT Sole Sold Separately"
The Method boot comes with an AT Sole and requires purchase of the extra Alpine Sole if needed.
