  3. Hi! Just curious about the carbon superfeet. Do you know how much the weight difference is vs. the others? Also, is there a thickness difference that you notice that affects the fit of the shoe? Thinking of getting some to put in my alpine touring boots to shave some grams, but concerned about the fit. Thanks!
