Boots are ENTIRELY based on your personal preference and your own foot. It's impossible for someone to tell you what boot will be best, because the best boot for me could be the worst boot for you.
My advice: go to the nearest shop and try on all the boots in the store. Coming from old motos, which are super soft, you may be interested in a mid-flexing boot. Something like the Burton Ambush or Ruler, or Nike Kaiju. For the most part, mid-to-high end boots will last, but all boots will break in and get softer over time.
I would suggest going to a shop, getting properly fitted for a boot, and trying on tons of boots until you find what you know fits you best.
