tomPietrowskiStiff boots rule for te park so long as you can ride them. im not going to recomend any boots as it's so fit dependent but so many people could probably benifit ftom going stiffer with boots so do not be afraid so long as it works for you of course.
IpeedMyPantsah this is just to give me a wider selection to try boots on. my shop doesnt have too many and i was looking for names of other boots im not familiar with
onenerdykidThis might sound like a good idea, but don't do it. Every ski boot brand makes super high quality stuff and each brand offers many different fit options, flex options, and price points. Again, if someone tells you to check out brand or model "X" that only works for them and most likely not for you.
One of the worst things you can do is have an opinion formulated about a boot before you try it on or have it recommended to you by a trained fitter. This is not like buying skis, so don't listen to your friends as to what brand/model works for them.
The best thing you can do is call your local shop or the shop that is known in your area for offering great boot-fitting (use Google, talk to your friends about where they got their awesome boots from, ask us on here, etc) and make an appointment to see what they recommend for you based on your foot and your budget.
Once you have tried on a few boots and found something you may like, then it makes sense for you to ask questions about people's experiences with the boots such as durability, warranty concerns, problems with X on the boot, etc.
