Just curious, looking at
and I noticed that most of the AT boots only have 3 buckles, one for the leg 2 for the foot. Whereas there are a few that look just like alpine boots with 4 buckles, 2 leg/2 foot.
Personally, I spent all my money on beacon, shovel, probe, pack and probably won't be able to spring for Naxos and AT boots until next year. But unfortunately my alpine boots are killing me. They are simply brutal on my shins. I don't have any problems with my boots skiing normally, it seems to be the freeheel part that is the issue. I have Lange Banshees using the BCA trecker adapters on regular old alpine bindings.
1. Is there anything I can do to alleviate my current problem.
2. Where can I get cheap AT boots :P
