OH- and BTW- if you ever get to the point of considering replacing your Rossi BCX12:

I have had trouble with fit with this boot- now resolved- but, what I can tell you- having owned multiple pairs of both Rossi and Fischer BC-XCD boots- is that the quality and durability of the Crispi boot is magnificent.

The Crispi Svartisen is the most supportive BC-XC boot that I have ever tested- while still offering classic Nordic striding.
Cross-country AND down-hill skiing in the backcountry.
Unashamed to be a "cross-country type" and love skiing down-hill.

Thanks for the info on the Crispi Svartinsen. From the photos, it looks like an interesting boot. So far, the Rossi BC X-12's have been working for me (fit wise), but I'm sure I'll be in the market for a new set of boots after a couple seasons. Most of the soft boots I've had lately only hold up for a few years. I was out testing the X-12's today on a pair of Voile Objective BC's. Interesting combination.
