I read with interest the previous post from a woman with a too flexible ankle joint. I unfortunately have been dealing (unsuccessfully) with this for many years and through many pairs of boots. The latest saga was that I was fitted with a custom liner (no diagnosis of the hypermobility issue) and footbed. I warned the tech that I pronoate alot. He went ahead and filled the foam before blowing out the ankle area. Result: very bad bruising of the navicular on both sides. Also the malleolus
I went back three times to no avail I tried another, who correctly saw the liner problem but didn't see the hyperflexion. He told me to replace the custom liners with my stock liners. That did solve the ankle problem but revealed the new problem of bad heel slop. A third fitter found the flexibility issue and put in a wedge (?) to lower my heel. After 1/8", it is MUCH better. But I still have some more minor heel slop.'
