Byronm....instead of going Dr. Frankenstein on your boots...try this on snow test..

Buckle up your boots how you normally would..then loosen the top buckle so it just barely stays connected. Then fasten your cuff strap oh so lightly. This little bit of extra movement will facilitate enough motion to the upper cuff and allow you to become the "master of your shovels"!

Now, this only would  illustrate that with your boots normally fastened, you're not able to get into your "attack" position. My first encounter with this very same experiment was with Harold Harb in was through his direction that I tried this and all of sudden, the front of the shovels responded.

If this test works, a good boot technician can soften the upper cuff in 15 minutes...
