Used to ride the ultralights but have had the prospects for the last 2 seasons. They are pretty trashed at this point but still doing alright considering I've ridden them in 3 dif seasons. They aren't "too stiff". They are what you would expect from a solid 32 boot. Like all boots you need to break them in to get that nice feel. "Too squeeky"? Lol, what is that even supposed to mean man.
I never have any problems with circulation. Maybe you just need to loosen them a little bit. Good boot. Not sure If I will be purchasing these specific ones again but def staying withing the 32 line. 11 or 12 season riding. Will never buy anything other than 32 boots again. Never done me wrong the last 5 years. Best switch I ever made.
