it's a remake of the old raichle flexon boot, which glen plake lived in. Dalbello is a great company and decided to revive the flexon and call it the krypton. They are sick boots because of the massive forward lean. They do have a really small last, but they keep you locked in. Most people think they are too soft because they have so much forward lean which is attributed to it's super low point of flex and only 3 buckles. What people don't realize is the amount of forward flex isn't that crucial, and actually helps in free riding and riding backwards. The flex that is important is lateral, side to side, you don't want the boot to bend during a carve. I love it when people put in the krypton and flex forward and say too soft. It's a great all around boot and actually helps force you out of the back seat.
my two cents
