A boot or shoe being able to provide substantial and meaningful ankle support is a myth. I cannot tell you know how many ankle sprains I've seen from people wearing boots. Hell, a sturdy hiking boot did nothing to stop me from breaking my fibula just above the ankle (still covered by the shoe). If a device is able to keep the ankle from moving, mobility is going to suffer big time and it would be hellishly unfcomortable.
A lighter shoe (less fatigue over the course of a day) and careful foot placement (paying attention) will do far more to protect your lower extremities than "ankle support".
I prefer a soccer shoe with soft cleats (Adidas Turf Hog) for use indoor (turf) and outdoor. Soccer and football cleats are meant to be worn by people who will need to shift direction rapidly, thus 360* traction is better than a baseball cleat.
Be careful not to step on wet logs or the like with cleats on. You will be in for quite the ride.
