You don't like 'em, send 'em back!
I think the boot, toggled and velcroed onto a foot, comprises a structure rigid enough in the axes of stress to help prevent injury. However, what I think appears irrelevant; what YOU think is what matters; your money, your choice!
Here's wishing you success in finding the boot satisfying your preferences and your pocketbook!
After all, a boot is not doomed to success, just because it costs a lot of money.
