Riding Shoes for Ankle Support

3 posts in this topic

Hey all, it's been a while... I've been looking into various riding shoes that provide more ankle support and I'm torn between the Five Ten Impact High

and the Freerider High. Have any of you tried either of these? I've been running the low Freeriders for years but I just need something over my ankle.

Thanks!

Hey there!  You'd think high tops give substantially more support, but in reality it's fairly marginal.  I've been using the Five Ten Line King's for awhile, no complaints.  If you're really looking to prevent injury or support a bad ankle you might want to look into braces / wraps / tape etc. 

Ironically if I was wearing my Line Kings instead of my other shoes in April I might've not busted my achilles simply because the spot that got hit would've been more covered.

braces, straps, support just make you weaker and lead to injury.  I’ve shown you ways of strengthening your feet!! barefoot life...
