thanks for all your input looked at sg10s nice boots but are spendy maybe look on ebay
I'll jump in too and say my SG10s are way better than my old Fox boots. But then again, my Fox boots were so old, they were the ones with the purple booties inside (remember those?).
But the SG10s do feel like they would protect your ankle. Very rigid where its needed, but flexible where you need to move. Trying is believing. I hate buying gear like that from a magazine; I want to try it on before I spend that kind of dough. For me it was either the SG10s or the Sidi Force SRS boots. Both boots people had LOTS of good things to say (I did an extensive search on the forums here), and quite a few people complained about broken ankles when wearing Alpinestars. I found one dealer who sold SG10s in my area, and had a pair in stock. The closest Sidi dealer was 150miles away.... So SG10s it was!
I have to say though, Thumpertalk in invaluable in this regard - you have LOTS of people here who don't get kick backs from the manufacturer for recommending their stuff *cough* magazines *cough*. So you usually get a true evaluation from people on here. If I had never read Thumpertalk, I may have bought a pair of Alpinestars instead... Why? Cuz they're marketed like crazy - its all I see and hear about. I've never seen a banner for Gaerne at the races.

My girl's fox tracker's are pretty much the same, but lots cheaper. Probably the best value boot out there.
With the fox sizing, everyone with them I know (including me) had to go 1 size bigger.
