Default Looking for new boots

A little background on me so that you can give me suggestions on boots that would fit me:
- riding for 5 years
- 60% park 40% trails
- live in NJ so mostly ride the ice coast (one or two powder trips a year)
- Used to wear Vans Encore Boots (BOA System)
- Liked the encore boots but they killed my feet all last season

Looking for some boots that will comfy and good all around, somewhere in the price range of 100-200, i dont mind buying a season old if i can find them for cheaper. As of right now i have no real idea where to begin looking since i havent looked to buy new boots in 3 years. Not sure what the difference is between BOA system and original lace system (or any of the other new lacing systems out there). I liked the BOAs because they were quick but i felt that they might have been the cause of pain in my foot because the pressure was not distributed equally. I am open to ALL suggestions! As of right now i have my eye on some Nike Zoom Force 1's that are tan and blue (looking for either a navy blue, light blue, or tan color boot because i have that color outerwear but it doesnt matter all that much)
