I've tried on a 32 Lashed and they are in no way a stiff boot, probably one of the softest boots I've ever tried on (I prefer stiffer boots in general)... I personally would not recommend those boots for hard charging freeriding. If you have to go 32 (I don't like that brand myself), go with the Prime over the Lashed (there is a reason previous year's Lashed boots always show up on the internet and in clearance bins for super cheap).

I am hearing conflicting opinions on whats out there right now so I wanted to get some input here before making a decision. I am looking to keep it under $300 if at all possible.

Nitro-Select TLS

I ended up with the Ride RFL's they aren't the stiffest; the malamutes and the Thraxis were the stiffest, but they were the most comfortable, lightest and had no heel lift. really happy so far with them.
^^^ What he said For my skinny ankles - I like Nitro Select myself (I have tried 32 Prime, Burton Driver and even owned Salomon F22 and Malamute... but Nitro fit me personally the best).

easton714 If you overcrank your bindings, your feet will hurt. You could have $5,000 boots made from fluffy clouds and they would still hurt.

Bindings don't need to be as tight as you think - especially if your boots fit.

I used to do it too. But that was when I had crappy boots - and my feet always hurt because of it.

KIRKRIDER love my Burton Driver X...super stiff and supportive when you want.

Extremo It's probably the 8 year old boots. If you want to enjoy snowboarding, buck up and buy new equipment.

I tried to do that on Saturday and it only helped the pain a little bit. I'm just trying to figure out what the problem is. Is it the boots or the bindings? Is it because I am using an older model of boots with a new model of bindings?

Riley212 try riding your bindings a little more loose, so that they are just snug instead of cranking down on them. might help the pain

Extremo My top freeride picks would be:

Vans Cirro
ThrityTwo Prime
Deeluxe Spark
