I sure hope your handle has nothing to do with your incident. Also I hope your not to injured.
I picked up a pair of dirt bike boots at a garages sale. I use these for serious trails. Paid $20.
Warm and dry they are.
For the less serious local and work excursions I have a pair of Steel toe Doc Martins pull-ons. I've scuffed a few rocks with them and barley felt it. Plus they are used for work so I deduct them!! The ankles are padded extra.
Be careful and ride-on!!!
