Re: How do you measure a boots stiffness?
Interesting, well I wasn't referring to all traditional lace systems to be noob boots, just mine, they were lower end northwaves.
I'm 5'8 @ 175 lbs.
These new boots I got are Def jamming, the heel lock system seemed to be the key, along with the stiffer sole construction. Being able to tighten bottom and top sections independently on the fly also were a major help.
I guess my main concern is when will the boot decide to go limp on me. Looks like I've learned that it's a normal thing to renew gear every once in a while.
