Funny you posted that video. I just stumbled on that trailhead last weekend looking for a spot to pee on the way home from skiing. I wondered why all the cars were there and then I saw a guy with skates.
Athabascae are you from Ak. or are you coming for a visit?

Yep, I found the white are too hard. I thought they would promote keeping my back ball of foot flat on the ski, but somehow they just prevented heel lift and transferred a ton of pressure to my achilles.
I don't a know about the red flexors, but the green flexors are medium stiffness and worked best for me, for turning. I don't know if they can be bought anymore. I had a set but inadvertently left them on a pair of skis I sold.
Some have suggested filling the underside voids of the black flexors with shoe goo or freesole type products to stiffen them up.
