Problem- 6'5", 250 lbs, size 14, dxed with MS, I have dropfoot on my right foot with a valgus ankle, (ankle turns inwards). I need to know which is the best boot that would be suitable for me. Thanks

I think this is more than a bit beyond the experience of people on this forum, as well as the vast majority of even trained and experienced boot-fitters in outdoor shops. If you were in Northern California, I would suggest you head for the Palo Alto Medical Foundation's Sports Medicine Clinic or Stanford Medical School, which both have a number of MDs who are avid outdoor types and could advise you. I am sure there are other places in the country with similar facilities. As a guess, I suspect you would need to get a custom-made pair of boots and orthotics.
