I was thinking of heading over to the local med supply store and picking up one of those sleeve/sock type braces to wear inside my boot.
I dont ride w a brace...i do a tape job on my right ankle (even tho both ankles arent great its mostly my right that is my enemy)

I have achilles tendonitis and my two ligaments (perennial ligaments in back of ankle) are very worn n weak from soccer...i had an achilles boot for 2 mos up until 2 weeks ago and the dr said snowboarding is ok to do bc the boots are very stiff compared to reg shoes/boots and flexing in them is more supportive as well as how it flexes in snowboarding compared to everyday walking/running etc....

You should be ok....just do some strengthening and def RICE....but you should be ok in just a boot but everyone is diff....good luck
