Hi there- I have pairs of both high top and ankle height boots for winter. I sprained my foot/strained my ankle last Friday and was hoping to get a ride in by Friday to test out my new ice bike. Just wanted to check to see what the preferences are for people who wear boots. If I can wear high top boots, my foot/ankle is more supported. My ride is 8 mi with a grinder hill at the end. I haven't tried riding since I hurt my foot, but I think I might be ok with the high top boot. The low top is iffy.
