Last year, while in Montana, I saw a few Wranglers and other riders wearing “Packer Boots”. When I wear boots, (Roper, or Heeled Cowboy boots) I find that there isnt quite enough support around the ankle. Now that said, I do have a weaker right ankle than the left. Due to previous injury.
So when I returned to the UK, having no money left!! I found some Chippewa Packer Boots online. Preloved on Etsy, at a very reasonable price. So having got them home, I was really impressed! I wore them for the recent trip across Scotland, they were brilliant. Walking over difficult terrain and riding, was so much better.
I had no sore ankle or any other ache or pain. Best buy ever!
