i was using regular stirrups but my ankle was giving me fits. So I bought some original crooked ones and my ankle still isn’t liking those either. Plus I feel like my heels are naturally going too low which I’ve never had that problem before. I saw some kroes stirrups advertised online. Any input? Advice? Ideas?

I like my Kroes feet, my ankles and knees like them. I’ve never ridden in other twisted/crooked stirrups so I can’t really speak to a comparison.

Love the nettle stirrups. They seem to give my ankles support.

Nettles with the Levelers. Best investment ever. Hands down.

I got some SA Walls a couple years ago and love them. They have lessened my knee and ankle pain from riding 2 point (long trotting) all the time. Posting became impossible for me like over 10 years ago because of the knees and I'm wondering if I can go back to that now.

I have the walls twisted and slanted on everything I ride.  The only way I can make hours without being crippled when I'm done!

Thank you my dear!  They now also have the same style as the Halfbreeds but different foot pad that they call the Barrel Racer, so works for everyone's preferences.  And we also have the Slanted ones too for those of us that need even more relief on the old joints!

I used to be an die hard Walls fan until I used the Nettles with Leveler! It's night and day, IMO. I'll never go back to Walls.

The leveler eliminates even the slightest tilting of your stirrups, easing discomfort in your ankles. I have never used these myself..
