great boot for everyday wear

Reviewed by mr.G from the south on Friday, September 29, 2017
after a traumatic accident i was left with 1 plate, 3 screws and a permanent foot drop in my left foot . i use a cane and wear a AFO brace in my tennis shoes most of the times, so long days on my feet can be very painful . my old work and cowboy boots don't offer good ankle support . 4yrs later i decided to go back and try hiking boots again .
the la sportiva boot has been a game changer for me, lightweight, rugged, good traction, short break in and great ankle support !
i ordered the same size as my tennis shoe, perfect fit with tube socks . left foot is larger than right, put thicker insert in right boot, easy fix . for hikers i'd probably go up .5 for thicker socks .
sierra trading post was very helpful , i ordered 3 pair and returned 1 . no hassle, fast shipping and best deals .
hiking is off limits for me, so i gave the boots 4 stars to be fair .
