Those look like they're softer than what I'm looking for, and as hard as my feet are to fit, I'm definitely not going to try to get them through mail-order, even from a company that has free shipping to AK (Backcountry.com doesn't). Thanks for the advice on Nitros though. If I see some that are suitable I'll definitely try them on.

There are a few good shops in Anchorage, and my guy mentioned that he's wanting new boots too (and is also hard to fit due to a motorcycle accident that wrecked his feet), so we'll make a weekend of it sometime soon. I'll check out Salomon, K2, and Nike for sure. I've heard some bad things about durability with Salomon though, and I'm going to be splitboarding and riding a snowmachine with these, so they need to be pretty bomber.
