The difference in soft/stiff can be significant...but the more important question is...what is your riding style and terrain and which amt of boot flex will enhance your riding. A soft boot is generally for park and able to tweak grabs and stuff. A stiffer boot is generally for big mtn riding...where a stiff boot will help with leveraging/supporting big lines or high speed carves...like you want to be able to lean into a stiff boot and have it hold when you are railing at 50 mph or you need a quick assured response at 50 mph.

Smile Laces may be one of the most important parts of boots

I ride mostly park but have been using new waxed paracord laces to get the exact fit that I want in my boots and they have worked wonders. They don't come loose as I am tightening them and they stay tight all day long. They are amazing. You find those at waxdlaces.com

I wouldn't go looking for a soft boot, you'll end up breaking your ankle If your lucky

Or you could tear all your ligaments & tendons
You'll never be 100% again after that. Ever.

Get a medium flex boot, you're not a tweaker yet

When you you can tweak them to the point where, now you need softer boots, that's when you get softer boots.

Not before

Where the hell are ya located Gunsn no boots?

You basically want an average pair of boots that fit your feet perfect.

None of us know what that boot will be for you though?

Sometimes.... I can find good shit for people.
For cheap too.
