Sounds like you're describing the Rocky ECW boots. You're right, Those things had as much flexion as a concrete block. The goretex Bellevilles were night and day in comparison, but still clunky IMO. I never liked them, then again we had guys that wore them year round and preferred them to the hot weather bellevilles. :shrug
I was all about my desert jungle boots. The soles wore out quick, especially in rough terrain, but I loved 'em.

That's because you're doing it wrong. Seriously. You're still heel striking like you're running in conventional shoes. Going minimalist you need to retrain yourself to stop heel striking or you're looking at possibly serious injury.
