I agree. They could lighten up the boot quite a bit, and probably make it flex better too. And seriously, how much steeze do boots add to a set up? I'm betting anyone skiing in spk's sags their pants so much that you can't see their boots anyway.
I don't particularly care though, I'm skiing ghosts, and they fit like sex on my feet.(I tried on spk's, didn't like them, but I was never actually considering buying them either). Anyone buying ghosts though, be warned, you will rape your feet putting them on.
