I went to the Celsius Cirrus from the 2009 Vans Andreas (which were a relatively stiff freeride/freestyle boot before they introduced the softer model in 2010) and I would recommend doing the same to anyone who's looking for a well rounded boot. The Vans were way too stiff for jibbing because they wouldn't flex forward enough when setting the board down on a rail. The Cirrus are just a little softer with good forward flex but still rigid enough to handle big jumps and some freeriding. Obviously that will also depend on how soft your bindings are too. I've ridden 32's lashed and team 2's and thought they were both way too soft, even though the team 2's had a pretty high rating.
