I have the Salewa Snow Trainer Insulated boot and really like the mid-stiff sole. I plan to take long hikes on the trails covered by rocks and roots in the Olympic National Park. The Snow Trainer was excellent when hiking down from higher elevations. With spring and summer near, I'd like a non-insulated Salewa boot. Is the Alp Trainer's sole stiff enough for long hikes in the Olympics? I dislike soft soles in rugged country. What do you suggest? Thanks you.

Answer: 
While the Alp Trainer Mid can't be called soft, it is still more flexible at the ball of the foot than the Snow Trainer. From Salewa, the two boots that have a support similar to the Snow Trainer would be the Mountain Trainer Mid, or the Rapace. The Rapace is in fact slightly stiffer and can handle crampon use as well. Unfortunately, OMC does not stock either of these models.
Some boots that are similar to the Mountain Trainer/Rapace type that have a good fit record and worth investigating-
Asolo Khumbu
Scarpa Kinesis Pro
La Sportiva Trango S Evo

All of these are characterized by having very stiff soles, but with improved ankle flex to allow a less clunky movement. They also have reinforcing features inspired by mountaineering boots, such as full rubber rands. Indeed, the Trango S Evo is usually categorized as a mountaineering boot, but has found great favor with backpackers who are looking for a light, nimble, but stout hiking boot.
