It's subjective. Once you've been in enough boots you get to know what's stiff and what isn't. Boots have different flex patterns that need to be taken into consideration as well.

The time that they will last are relative to how much you ride and how well the boot is constructed. I've had boots last several seasons and boots that haven't lasted 1.
