Default looking for a softer all-mountain boot

I currently have 32 focus boots in a 12. They are a bit stiff and was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for boots on the softer side that would pair well with union force bindings and a lib skunk apes board?

If you like how your 32's fit go with the 32 Lashed for a lot softer. 32 TM Two are awesome, but just a smidge softer in flex from the Focus.

It may be old skool thinking but I would pair a stiff boot with the Skunk Ape. That's supposed to be a stiff board. In theory a stiff board will send ground reaction forces up through the ankles and knees which will benefit from a stiffer boot to help reduce demand on these joints.

Your bindings should be fine either way. Force are very versitile.

Thanks for the advice. i like my 32's just was curious if i should change them up with something softer. i just got the ape and rode it the last two days. Love the board and bindings. I will look into the other boots and if the price is right get a softer pair and see how they are.

Remember, if your boots are new they will soften up as your ride too. You might even begin to miss how stiff they were at first.
