before anyone complains about posting this in the wrong forum i believed it belonged here.
back on topic,after my recent ankle injury that has resulted in me getting a over-all ankle infection that has left me being unable to walk for 3 weeks,ive wondered how to avoid this happening again.
the souloution i think is hightop shoes i want the oppinon of someone and how/if they effect riding,before you say chop the bottoms of football shinpads ive thought about that and it isnt the soloution,i have also looked at those five ten shoes and i dont believe they will solve the problem.
the shoes im interested in are the nike dunks they have good ankle protection,and have a flat base like a skate shoe.
I love them they’re strong and they’re designed for skate with flat soles etc.
These are mids but they stop me from getting ankle bites, I prefer the mid over the high anyways allows for more comfortable movement.
I’m with raymanh. Apparently there’s an existing injury with a story, but you left out the story. If it’s in another thread you could put in a link here (it’s possible to link directly to specific posts in a thread too). Was your infection from a surface wound or internal damage?
well heres the full story,it was a long weekend i went to a party on the friday i dont no what i did it sort of hazy,saturday i went unicycling for the day i was doing street and whacked my ankles a few times,saturday night i went to a 5 hour dance party and in the last hour of the dance party i couldnt walk so i went home and it hurt to even put water on it.the next day it was swollen about 3 times as normal and there was a purple an red line that slowly was going further and further from my ankle,i still couldnt walk so i went to the hospital.they just gave me some antibiotics and a walking stick.there was no cut or wounds on my ankle that the infection could get into.the next few days i just chilled at home and did nothing but the infection didnt go down so after a week i went to the doctor and talked to them they asked me what i had done the weekend before i told them unicycle and party they thought it could be due to the ankle whacking from unicycling or from a spider bite friday but thats pretty much ruled out now,so the next day i went back to the doctors and he shoved a fat needle in my ankle(most painfull experience of my life)it still hurt to put water on it so i wasnt having the best time,he drained 50ml of pus and fluid from my ankle not including all the stuff that oozed out after,he then got a razor blade and made incisions all over my ankle,he then gave me new antibiotics that are for bone infections.well thats the full story now i am left not being able to do anything for a few weeks till my ankle fully recovers but before i start unicycling again i want to find a soloution so this doesnt happen again.
