Thank you for posting on this Jlbny.
This is great information as I could have bought the Lofoten cheaper than the Svartisen and was thinking that I had perhaps made the wrong choice.

I have been told that the Lofoten is the same boot as the Stetind, with an added instep strap.
Do you know if this is true? Or is the Lofoten the same boot as the Svartisen without the powerstrap?

Your mention of the stiff sole flex of the Lofoten suggests that it has a stiffer sole than the Svartisen...

LC, I somehow recall reading from someone in the business that these are 3 entirely different designs...FWIW.

Well, it certainly would be better if we could try on all of these boots, walk around and flex them before we buy them!!!!
