    Boots for flat pedals

    Hello.
    After two ankle injuries, I'm looking for a boots to protect better this weak part. I'm looking for a boot with good pedal comfort because I have to climb up. I watched these models:
    5-10 Impact High. Seems a bit heavy and stiff
    5-10 Diddie Schneider - Moss ¿?
    5-10 Five Ten Cyclone. Looks great but for spd not flat (may be its works well on flat pedals)
    Teva links mid ¿?

    More sugestions?

    Thanks.

    Thanks, they looks great but today they are complicated to buy in Europe.

    Can you just wear an ankle brace inside a regular low shoe?

    Helo J0hn.
    Thanks. I thought about that but I guess is not a good idea because in Winter I wear the Seal skins and other wool sock.

    regards

    What specifically was the mode of injury? A hi-top is not necessarily the answer for ankle protection.

    I wear 5:10 Impact Highs.
    Good protection for bumps to the ankle but are a bit big and heavy.
    You don't notice it in the bike and they stick well to pedals

    Hello.
    Finally I bought the Teva links mid. I hope they help me to minimize my ankle sprains.

    Thanks to all for your answers. Regards

    Hey buddy,

    as far as I know links mid were designed to protect against pedals bashing into the ankle area and will probably not prevent a sprained ankle. Your best best is wearing real support in the form of a brace. Those are great shoes though I love my Teva's.

    Good luck.
