Default Need a stiffer boot...Help

So last year I rode with the 32 lashed boots. Nice comfy boot, but I was having to tie them so tight that my calves went numb a few times in order to try to take some flex out them. When I say stiffer, I mean the forward flex, not side to side. None of the 32 boots really offer a significant difference in the direction I need more support.

The bulk of the riding we do is freeride (bowls, steeps, groomers, blah, blah,blah) , with the occasional kicker...no pipe, rails, or anything like that.

I may keep the lashed boots for local riding...but for trips out west I want something stiffer.

Tried on the K2 darko yesterday and they aren't too bad. A little stiffer, and fairly comfy.

Are there other boots worth checking out? Burton boots are a bit narrow for my foot.
