These boots suck!
I bought these because I had the comparable boot in the NNN setup and they were pretty good. I wanted to go with the 3-pin due to making very long tours and sometimes hiking I was afraid if the NNN failed I would have a long post hole out of somewhere. As someone else already said, the duckbill is super stiff and the boot in the toes is not, so your toes do all the bending and on a long tour this is pure torture. These things just kill the feet on long days, they are way more narrow than my Rossi NNN boots. They are also freakishly cold! Seems like the toe are has zero insulation, it creates as ice box in there! So, all said...these are gonna go, don't waste your money!
