Default need help looking for new boots

right now i have some burton freestyle boots (1st pair). i'm looking to upgrade a little bit in my next pair, taking what i learned from my first pair. the main thing i want is a stiffer or more secure upper ankle section for more response. looking at boots online, how can you tell what the response factor is? i'm definately going to a shop to try them on, but i'm trying to have a general idea of boots i want to pick from before. i see price ranges from $100 to $600. what are the benefits of the more expensive boots? also i was looking at the new speed zone feature on some of burtons boots, anyone have any boots with that feature?
