Ankle and Arch Support!

Verified Buyer Reviewed by MadderRoot from Massachusetts on Tuesday, July 22, 2014
I love these boots.

I've only taken them on a few short hikes so far, but they are extremely well-made and offer the extra ankle support I was looking for. I recently twisted my ankle so I wanted a durable boot that would not perpetuate my injury and had the potential to go on longer hikes once I rebuild my strength. They will take some breaking in as the top edge of the ankles is a bit stiff but wearing a cushioned sock is helping with that.

I normally wear a US 7 shoe, but based on reviews ordered the UK size 5 which is equivalent to a 7.5. These fit perfectly and have enough wiggle room in the toes. I wanted a shoe with a roomier toe box and plenty of support so I would not be sliding down into the toe box. These are great on the downhill and my feet stay rooted in place. On the laces, there is one hook that reaches farther back than the rest, and this really helps with getting a snug and firm fit around the ankle.

The arch support inside was surprisingly comfortable and high enough that I can get away without wearing my orthodics.

I chose the color "Aeshe" and I love it in person.
