Default Stiff or Soft boots =\

Alright so I plan on going boot shopping tomorrow but I can't find anything on which boot I should favour for park riding and casual runs down the hill?

Can anyone give me a run down on boot stiffness and softness? Which is for what?

Thanks.

It's really a personal preference thing. Generally though, park riding favors a softer boot while free riding favors a stiffer boot. The same is true for bindings and boards.

I'm primarily a free rider and I prefer a stiff boot with a relatively flexy binding. That's just what I find comfortable.

Alright thanks I'll keep that in mind while I'm shopping.
