Mike,
After I took that spill at Willow Springs last year, I went out and bought 2 pair of riding boots. One was a nicer pair of Sedici wet weather boots and the other were cheap Cycle gear ones for summer. I tried some full motoX boots that offered a ton of protection and no movement but I couldn't shift in either of my dual sports. I am now re-thinking the whole better ankle protection deal. I am guessing that anything that offers decent protection will require shifter mods and bringing a spare set of shoes for walking with. In any case I really thought that I wouldn't need all the protection since I only ride easy trails. Most of the time I ride off road under 35mph. I guess you kinda debunked my whole delusion of safety at slower speeds myth. Hope you are feeling better soon, Paul
