    Just wear your ski boots hiking. You will never have an ankle support issue again.

    I am another fan of the Asolo 95 FSN:



    As mentioned above, Sierra Trading Post always seem to have them at a very good price:

    I just returned a pair of the Moabs, I will say that they were comfortable, but they didn't last well at all. After three months of use the sole started to separate from the shoe thus making them no longer waterproof. If it was me and I had ankle troubles I would sacrifice the weight and go for a nice pair of leather boots with better support. I really like the Irish Setter "elk" (?) series. A heavier boot but they will not crap out after a few months.

    Thanks, I have a pair of Vasque Wasatch(older version), but was hoping for something a little lighter. From reading the Merrell reviews on the Moabs, they either last or are garbage.

    Forgot to add that I might need some traction too.

    +1 for the Asolo's. A bit pricey but I have had good experiences with them in the past.

    Will the next giveaway be a pair of hiking boots of our choice?

    Just got my boots back from Merrell. They did not send me back a pair of Moabs, they sent me the Perimeters. Serious upgrade!
