Explanation:
http://www.consumersearch.com/hiking-boots/important-feature...

Hiking boots support the ankle to avoid twisting but should not restrict the ankle's movement much. They also must be fairly stiff to support the foot. A properly fitted boot and/or friction-reducing patches applied to troublesome areas can ensure protection against blisters and other discomforts associated with long hikes on rugged terrain

Example sentence(s):
  • Look for a snug heel fit with a deep Achilles notch and a roomy toe box. The Achilles notch is at the back of the ankle cuff to keep the cuff from rubbing you there. Shoe and boot designers have devised various ways to keep footwear snug around your ankle
