Have you tried the Ride Cadence? Found them to be very snug around the ankles.
I haven't had a chance to go boot shopping yet. I'm just trying to kill time by making this thread until my ankle heels enough so that I can try boots on. Ha.
And Pout, I haven't tried the J bars yet. How do your feet feel with them after you've had the boots on for 8+ hours?
