I was looking for the same type of boot and came across the Vans BFB. If you ride a lot of park they're on the stiffer side but I was looking for that type of stability to hold up on bug jumps and hard landings. Because they're stiffer than most park oriented boots they hold up real well on the rest of the mountain. I've been on them for 2 years and ride about 60 days a season and hike a lot of rails and jumps all day as well and they've held up quite well but I think that its about time to get a new pair. If you want something a little stiffer than that check out the Vans Fargo, same liner and type of fit.
