I don't know anything about the model you are thinking of buying, but I do think Northwaves are fucking excellent. I don't know what type of riding the Legends are made for, so you should goggle it. The pair I had have by far outlasted all pairs of boots I have owned. They were warm, comfortable and had a convenient highly functioning speed lacing system. It took well over one hundred days to pop the air packs. I paided about 80 for mine because they were sitting in shop for 2 years.
Mine were soft. The best boots ever!
