I have arrived at this conversation board in need of advice. I broke my talus about 1.5 years ago. Since then I have been attempting to return to the beloved activity of backpacking and hiking, but i experience a recurring problem.... my ankle kills me after being in my hiking boots!! They have been amazing boots up until my ankle decided they were the bane of its existence, so it is time to wander into the land of new boots. I was wondering if anyone had advice on boots that provide ankle support but do not contain intense rigidity? Water proof? Intentions to use for backpacking and day hikes. The current boots I have are Selewa Mountain Trainer Mid GTX Hiking boots.
