Default Bad Ankles

I have come to realize that I have bad ankles. They do not bend toward my shin like they should. Right now my Burton Hails ~06-07 size 12 cut off circulation to my feet.

I need fairly wide boots. Has anyone went through this? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Do you mean flexing your ankle so the top of the foot moves towards the shin? What do you mean "not normal" ? Just not flexible? And why do you think that's causing the circulation issue?

Do some Yoga and get a footbed that will cradle the arch of the foot. It's collapsing due to the stiffness and not helping with circulation.
