This is VERY useful information my friend- thank you!
It molds extremely well to the ankle though which is a great plus in terms of support. Its got a wide toe box, unlike Alaska. The Quest Dynamic is a mini step down from the Quest Advance. The closest thing to the Alpina Alaska in terms of stiffness in Alfa's line up would perhaps be the new Guard Advance. Who is going to try out that 600$+ shoe for us?
Well- it is unfortunately out of the reach of my budget this year!
I am thinking that buying a 42EU Alaska BC is the the most logical and practical thing to do!
A Crispi Lofoten BC @ 229Euros is going to cost me at least $350CAN by the time they land in my kitchen- I can get a pair of Alaskas for $300CAN- and I know what I am getting...
