Erikwrote a question about Salewa Pro Gaiter Mountaineering Boot - Men's on December 21, 2012
Tried on the Guide version yesterday in a US 13 / EU 47 (Gaiter version not available in my size). The boot fit my foot really well - great start. Walking around in 'WALK' mode is an eye opener, and I could def see how the flexibility would make approaches measurably easier/faster. In 'CLIMB' mode, however, there was still some flex to the boot (way more than my old Baturas).
So, a question to those of you who have this boot and have climbed steep ice/mixed in it: how does the flex in 'CLIMB' mode affect your climbing on steep terrain? (I realize this flex might only be an issue with the largest size.)
