Why are Burton Boots soo soft this year?

Hey does anyone know why Burton's boots are soo soft this year. For example the Driver X use to take all your strength to bend it and this year it folds like a tortilla. I have seen this on every other Burton boot as well. The 3d molded tongue is really thin, the shell is thin and the liner is very soft. Did Burton change manufacturers, go cheap to save some cash or did they create some new tech that doesn't require stiffness to get response? Thanks!

Burton has always been known for having softer boots overall. Sounds like it's par for the course to me.

Yeah but they are about 3 times softer this year than the last 5 years. The new Driver X feels like the old Driver X after 100 days. Same with the SLX. Really strange.....
