If you like how your 32's fit go with the 32 Lashed for a lot softer. 32 TM Two are awesome, but just a smidge softer in flex from the Focus.
It may be old skool thinking but I would pair a stiff boot with the Skunk Ape. That's supposed to be a stiff board. In theory a stiff board will send ground reaction forces up through the ankles and knees which will benefit from a stiffer boot to help reduce demand on these joints.
Your bindings should be fine either way. Force are very versitile.
