Hey folks, I have a couple of questions about boot fit. First, my mountaineering boots are Scarpa Mont Blanc size 46.5 (I think it's 12.5?) and they are pretty wide. BD Sabretooths have no trouble with length but are challenged by the width of the boot - the posts barely fit over the heel. Would Air Techs fit, even with extender bars? Second, the main reason I am looking at these is that I am thinking of wearing them with regular hiking boots on trips where I expect snow and rock but no ice. The hiking boots I favor have very flexible soles and are generally soft all-around. Has anyone tried these with soft boots, would they work? Any alternative suggestions? Thanks!
