You may want to try a minimalist approach. I trip & twist more often in big, clunky shoes of any design or amount of support. Minimalist designs can help you feel the ground better to avoid tripping or rolling in the first place. Plus there's less leverage on the foot so if you roll, your foot doesn't roll as far or with as much force.

If you need any evidence for the effect of a raised heel causing problems, just watch a woman try to run (or even walk) in high heels. Fat heels are dangerous. A 2" boot heel is better than a 5" woman's heel. But 0" is best of all.

Well... I don't know about that, Sam!!??

I watch women running for the train, in high spiked heels every morning!!! Most of these women, could probly run a marathon in them. Ok, I'm old & fat, but I can still run!!! I know I couldn't catch them if I had to! LMAO

There is a fine line between Hunting, & Sitting there looking Stupid...

May The Great Spirit Guide Your Arrows..... Happy Hunting!!!

I bought a pair of Rocky Grizzlies last year before my elk hunt and have been really pleased with them. They are lightly insulated (200 gram) but plenty for active hunting in my part of the country. Ankle support is good, they lace to the toe in the style of the Danner Elk Hunters.
