I almost always wear light (low-cut) shoes, except when using crampons. Yes, I've rolled my ankle more in higher boots, than in low shoes. The biggest correlation for turning my ankle, is the use of shoes/boots with high and narrow heels.
I've tried wearing various braces with low boots, really I have; I have a friend who has had a similar injury, and she has searched hard for braces. Both of us find braces unpleasant to wear in boots/shoes of any kind.
Perhaps I have just not found the right non-tape ankle brace; but I swear I can get more secure bracing by a good tape job, than from any brace I've tried (not including totally stiff braces).
I've started with foot weights, agility-type exercises, and so on; we'll see how that goes.
