Ankle aid

After three bad sprains, my right ankle is weak and wobbly. For my upcoming expedition to the Indian Himalayas, I need a lightweight hiking boot with good ankle support, comfortable construction, and a sticky sole. This past weekend I tested out Sportiva's Eco 3.0 at Mount Evans hiking through spongy alpine terrain, insecure talus fields and substantial rainfall. They kept my ankle safe and feet happy all day long.
