Ive had the Ride Jackson Boa for a couple seasons and I am very happy with them. Super comfy and have held up real well. I like my boots a little stiffer so these are perfect at a 7. I do a lot of park but like to take nice long runs/trees leading to the park so my style sounds pretty similar to you.
Whats nice too is with the boa if you want to get a little more tweaky you can just not tighten it as much, and vice versa when your charging.
BTW I think they were only $100 on seshday today or yesterday which is half what I paid....they are the white ones though! I got the black.
