|I love my 44 LS Nepal's for fit and performance but I ordered some Asolo Eiger's to save weight and have a less warm boot for fall ice climbing in the Sierra. The 43 and 1/3 Eigers fit me well, but the way they are designed, the sole is about 1.5 cm longer than my Nepals. I do notice the extra length walking around the living room.
I am wondering if the extra length will be a problem either on approaches or front pointing, where it might put more leverage and strain on my calfs?
I had some Trango Extremes, but they were to narrow in the forefoot for me.
