Well, I can't speak for 32 boots in general since I've only tried one pair, but these seem like they are relatively stiff, (not stiff-stiff but not soft). Mine are about 3 years old, and have probably seen around 100 days, so I have to admit at this point they probably are kind of soft. Overall though I've been super happy with them, deffinetly responsive and very comfortable, way more comfortable then the pair I had before. They're pretty beat to shit and ready to be replaced though methinks.
