That's great. What thickness/stiffness did you decide was optimal?

The ideal is that one can tune the shoe stiffness/support to the terrain and needs of your feet. By this past August I was able to wear the stock X Countrys on rugged, off-trail alpine talus fests and wasn't held back at all. The rock plates helped me get to that point.
