I have a weak ankle after twisting it multiple times over the years and this last time it’s been healing very slowly and kept going out again and again to the slightest wrong move, so I thought I try this. And it’s been good, it keeps my ankle in place.
Everybody’s body is built differently so it can’t fit everyone equally well. For me I had to fiddle with it for a good while to figure out a way that it’s not sticking out in places - for my build it’s not sewn correctly. If I’m not careful then the thick part of the long strap has a gap in it that’s like bunched up fabric sticking out, so I have to angle the thick part unnaturally upwards and only then the fabric lies flat on my ankle. (See video.) But at least I worked out a way that it works. But yeah maybe the £39 counterpart that Andy Murray is using would actually be worth it but why does it have to be so expensive if you want something to work properly!?!? 🙄🙄🙄🙄 ugh!
Anyway this one works. (Apart from the above.)
I can make it as loose or tight as I want to.
I have very skinny narrow feet, and if I weren’t at a stage of recovery I’m at, this wouldn’t work properly but since I’m nearly healed from a twisted ankle this is sufficient enough. It does give the flexible support my weak ankle needs.
Easy to put on, even with a sore ankle, it opens up totally around the ankle where it really needs to. You can put socks over it if you want, it’s thin enough for that. But one ankle will look thicker of course, (see pic) but way better still then some other thicker braces I tried.. It goes into most of my casual shoes - trainers, trail shoes, walking boots, doc martens, all shoes with laces and also slippers of course - not the fancy boots & shoes tho.
