    The guide told me if I allready had the Lacrosse they would work fine instead of Xtratuffs.

    The Xtratuff's won't slip around on the slimy stuff nearly as much as the Lacrsses will.

    I'd rather have boots that have better ankle support than the xtratuffs - thats why I'll never wear xtra tuffs...

    lol no - I was raised in xtratuffs - I just dont believe in them and think they are overrated - They do absolutely NOTHING for your ankles, and for foot support. Why would I want to wear those and bust my ankles?

    I can easily buy a high quality hunting boot and be much happier.

    Just because you prefer them - Doesnt mean I should, and thay my statement of discontent with them should warrant the reply "Your young" Thus implieing, that I am ignorant...

    Now that said, your entitled to your opinion, however wrong I think that may be.

    Is it your ankles that are weak, or your wrists?

    Ankles are made to bend and flex....haven't seen too many people in the alpine wearing a cast, have you?

    Whats your point? xtratuffs still do not provide any ankle support - This in off camber situations leave you prone to rolling an ankle whereas a good quality hunting/hiking boot will not.

    Like I said before - You can go ahead and wear your xtratuffs - I think they are worthless.

    The forums are full of people posting from hospital beds, after rolling their ankles in XtraTuffs.

    Give or take?

    Yes, and everyone on here and there mothers wears xtratuffs hunting - Easy to make statements without back up, isnt it?

    Answer me this question.

    How do Xtratuffs provide a person ankle support?

    I guess ski boots might be a better choice? Fair amount of ankle support there...

    You still have not answered my question....

    Your position makes a critical assumption...that some measure of ankle support, above that which is provided by XtraTuffs, is necessary.

    I often wear mine corked. Coupled with the lack of ankle support, that should really snap you...
