The thing about weight is simple enough. You would want the stiffest boot in your budget range that fits the best if you were a heavier set guy. The reasoning behind this is that you would theoretically put more wear and tear/strain on your boots as you skate. A stiffer skate would not only perform better, but last longer.
That being said, if you yourself believe that the ankles are the problem, then maybe wait it out and see if you improve. You have to make sure that it is the boot that isn't supporting you or fitting well for you before you consider new skates.
