Garmont high tops
Garmont also makes some, high topped boots. Look at the Integra.I hiked before, and still do backpacking, in leather Lowa Scouts. I found that I would roll an ankle toward the end of the day. It's counterintuitive, but my experience has been that the stability of the Garmonts, if I'm carrying less than 20 pounds is actually better than the Lowa's. They make another shoe, the Matrix, that I have that is not as good at gripping, but fine on trail and scree, that is even more stable than the Nagevi. That my experience anyway.
Lowa has put out a new boot with a plastic stabilizer that contains the ankle that has had great reviews. I'd look at it.
Be sure to pick up a copy of Gerry Roach's "Colorado's Fourteeners". It's the bible on the peaks. Also, his Colorado Thirteeners is excellent. The peaks south of Breckenridge, the Ten Mile/Mosquito range are a blast. They're all walkups with high trailheads. Lot's of fun with fantastic views.
Looking forward to hiking with you.
Hope they don't throw us out for discussing this. Shhhhh.
