I had Limmers and even as an older person, my foot changed. 15 years on those boots and eventually had to get something softer on in the mid sole department.
I love my Oboz. on my second pair now.
However, with Morton's foot and a narrow foot to start, I can no longer use them because of the downhill toe torture. I have a pair of Danner's which are narrow and the downhills are great. But... these have zero ankle support compared to Limmers and Oboz.
What brand/model would be good for both Narrow/mortons and has good ankle support?
After recent hikes of unusual conditions, I am using the Danner's with ankle supports. The grip on these is a huge benefit. Oboz slide on wet VT rocks.

I am not sure that ankle support from th boot is all that necessary- if your legs and ankle are conditioned. This comes from my running days, when I was training for marathons entirely in low cuts, of course, and felt comfortable hiking in progressively lighter and less supportive shoes.
Now that is an amateur's opinion and experience. I wonder what ahiking nd/or running podiastrist would say?
I have either been in good condition or very lucky. I can't remember the last time I had ankle problems....
