Update:
I purchased both boots online in Oct - could not decide which pair was better after wearing them around the house 2 different nights. The 32 fit me better in the heel, but the Ride still fit good all around. Insanos felt 1-2 (out of 10) tics stiffer. Kept the Insanos to try a different brand. Both got great reviews.

After riding them this past weekend - they're too stiff. If your all-mountain riding is only charging and no cruising or park, you'll be fine. They just felt too stiff for my liking. Going back to the 32 focus boa. I know they'll break in softer than the Insanos after a bit of riding. They'll probably still feel a little bit stiff for a while, though. I didn't see any other focus boa boots that were more mid-flex, though. (especially at 50% off)

Also want to give evo.com praise - I've re-ordered my 32s through them and they matched my previous price-matched order even though there are no other sites as cheap as them currently. evo.com has always provided excellent service.

Looking forward to breaking in the 32s to get them down to about a 7/10 on the flex scale, which is more of what I was looking for apparently.
