It's not bad. I just don't like not being able to bend at the ankles. I feel like I'm wearing my riding boots that have metal shanks up the back. Do you think I should seriously invest in a pair?

Um... all the older boots were really soft like that. Which was fine, you can still ride. If you like the workboots, and your feet don't hurt (or get too cold), then go for it. You'll definately get strong ankles.

Stiffer boots offer more support for more aggressive riding and carving, and are made to specifically fit bindings. But roll with what works for you.
