Well, I have decided to go with the Zhik boots and the Zhik Hiking strap...It sounds like a good system that is worth giving a try. Except, I don't know what boots to get. I was thinking about the Max Support 400 Boot, however I am worrying that the Zhik material doesn't go down far enough on the toe. So I was also considering the Ankle Boot 100 because the material goes all the way down to the toe, and it is a reasonable price. However, I am worried that it won't give me enough support. Any opinions from those few people that have used the boots or ankle boots in general would be awesome. Thanks.
