|It's a pity that your Oberhamer boots aren't usable anymore! But any boot is better than no boot or else you couldn't skate.
I think my Fesl boot protect my ankles really well. They have some thick and strong padding which makes it more difficult to get into the boots but makes them fit better and reduces impact on the ankles. To be honest, I can't remember when I hit my ankles the last time and therefore can't tell how bad it was.
