The DonJoy RocketSoc is a durable and supportive soft ankle brace used to treat and prevent common or acute ankle injuries. Through the unique patented strapping system the ankle is secured into a natural position, which prevents lateral ankle sprains without restricting range of motion.

What makes the RocketSoc ankle brace unique is the easy to adjust peroneal forefoot (sides of the forefoot) and calcaneal heel lock straps which provides unrivaled support to the ankle ligaments that are most commonly sprained - the anterior talofibular, calcaneofibular and posterior talofibular ligaments.

  • Acute ankle injuries
  • Chronic instability of the ankle

Product Features…and the benefits you’ll experience!

  • Complete Range-of-Motion

  • Low Profile Design
    Lightweight, low profile design eliminates that bulky feeling when worn with a shoe.

Lace Up

  • Lace up design allows contouring fit
  • Low profile lightweight Nylon construction
  • Fewest straps of all RocketSoc models

Wraparound – Neoprene

  • Wraparound style

DonJoy RocketSoc Ankle Support Brace reviews

Big B
I have a chronically weak ankle that has been sprained multiple times over the years (could sprain it walking acrossed a lawn). I bought my first DonJoy RocketSoc years ago and have been hooked since. I weigh about 250# and play basketball regularly and I have never sprained my ankle wearing one of these! The neoprene seems less bulky and holds up a little better for me than the cooler Drytex. - Big B
Really a great Ankle Brace. Best I've tried for basketball. - Ike
This ankle brace is the best you can find. Ive gone through plenty of ankle braces and its obvious this is the best. - baller

This product is great once you get it on your foot, but the size ran small in my opinion. I wear size 13 narrow shoes and found I could barely get this on and I bought the size XL and wished I had bought XXL. I have slender feet (narrow sizes when I can find them) and it's still barely big enough and have to pull hard on the inner ankle velcro before adding on the two ankle straps. The two straps around the heel and the arch have to be twist somewhat creating a gap at the heel and the arch as the strap is twisted a bit so that the design needs some improvement on these two straps. Once it's on it's very snug and holds your ankle well. However, don't do like me and buy it just two months after breaking your ankle as the compression can lead to pain. If you want milder compression buy it a size larger than recommended. - steve r

    • I wear 9 1/2 D Allen Edmonds business shoe, but 10 1/2 EEEE in New Balance tennis shoes. What do you think the optimal size brace in Drytex for my foot is?
    • We recommend going to the next size up if you are between sizes. A large would work best for you.
  • From Jay at 7/16/2011 7:16 AM
    • Can a sock be worn under the Drytex Rocket Sock, or is the sock worn over the brace?
    • You should wear the sock underneath the brace.

    • My son is a 300lb line men in highschool. He has issues with weak ankles and frequently rolls his ankles.... I will be ordering bilateral ankle braces, but I can not decide which one is best, the Rocket Sock or Velocity ES...Please let me know what you think...Thanks
    • The Velocity is the best anke brace we offer and especially for linemen. If he has swelling in the foot and ankle then order the Velocity ES. If he just has swelling at the ankle bones, then order the Velocity MS. If he doesn't have swelling then order the Velocity LS.

  • From courtney at 11/10/2012 3:35 PM
    • i had ankle foot surgery in august of this year i have the velocity ankle brace already but i dont find it very comfortable on the arch of my foot so i was looking at the DonJoy RocketSoc Ankle Support Brace im a runner and play basketball so which would be best?
    • Hello, Courtney -

      I would first speak with your physician to ensure that it would be ok to transition from the Velocity (a rigid brace) to a RocketSoc (a softer brace). The only difference between the Neoprene and Drytex is the material (Neoprene is a bit warmer and thicker) while drytex is a lighter material, more breathable, and hypo-allergenic. Of the 3 RocketSoc Ankle Braces, the Lace-Up would provide the most support because of the additional laces that run the length of the brace. All three contain the stirrups and heal-lock supports.

      Thanks, have a great day!
  • From Alim at 12/12/2012 1:29 AM
    • I need to know if this is available for child size age 2 years.
      Also does this model have a metal frame at the sides for ankle support.
    • Hello, Alim -

      Sorry, we do not make this brace in pediatric sizes. The smallest size this comes in is XS, which is a men's size 4-5 1/2.

      Thanks and have a great day!
  • From Rich at 12/13/2012 11:00 PM
    • I have a narrow ankle and foot, D width max. Should I order 1 size smaller than the chart reccomends for a men's 13? I will be using it for backpacking in rugged terrain.
    • Hello, Rich -

      No, you do not need to go with a smaller size to accommodate to your foot width. The brace itself is adjustable in the velcro and lace up portions, so that will make the brace snug to your narrow dimentions.

      Thanks and have a great day!
  • From Ken at 4/20/2013 3:47 PM
    • My daughter is a competitive volleyball player with an acute Grade 2 ankle sprain
      She has her national qualifying tournament, in 2weeks. Assuming she can play. is this the best brace u have for her situation? Which style would be the best, lace up, etc?
    • Hello, Ken -

      Because of the severity of her sprain we would recommend a more rigid brace. The DonJoy Velocity would be an excellent choice to provide the stability and mobility she would need for her activity.

      If you have further questions, please feel free to contact our product specialists at 888-405-3251.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!
  • From Garnett at 5/27/2013 12:30 PM
    • I have the aircast aiesport ant the aircast A60. The one I use depends on the activity. However I need sonething more stable when walking in the woods or on very rough ground . Would the Rocketsoc give more support and is it more or less bulky than the Airspor? I Have a medium in the airsport and assume I need the same in the Rocketsoc.
    • Hello Garnett,

      I suggest the Donjoy Pro ankle brace, it is applied like a sock then you lace it and have medial and lateral stirrups. Its similiar to having your ankle taped. If you would like something more rigid with, rigid medial and lateral supports I suggest the Donjoy Velocity MS Ankle Brace.

      Yes the RocketSoc is more bulky than the A60 and Airsport.

      Please contact a Product Specialist with further questions. 1-888-405-3251.

      Have a Great Day.
  • From Nicole at 7/30/2013 8:58 AM
    • My daughter broke her ankle playing softball and had to have surgery to put a pin in. They removed the pin and said everything healed back great. She plays basketball and softball and we want to make sure she has the right type of support to help prevent any more ankle injuries. Which brace do you recommend?
    • Hello Nicole,

      I recommend the Donjoy Pro Stabilizing Ankle brace. This brace has stirrups which provides medial and lateral support. This brace is similar to having your ankle taped. It's thin, comfortable and supportive. If your daughter feels like she wants Rigid Support, the AirSport has a medial and lateral rigid support similar to the AirStirrup, this brace is a little more bulky, most be worn with athletic shoe. The RocketSoc, is similiar to the Pro, but it has more components, a little more time consuming to put on.

      Thanks for Contacting Donjoy.
  • From Mark at 8/26/2013 10:09 AM
    • Recovering from fractured lower fibula with dislocated tibia and would like to graduate from large aircast boot to something smaller, more flexible (as doctor permits) that will also accommodate ankle swelling. Would Rocketsoc be approriate? What does it mean to have the optional inferior buttress for swelling available on the drytex and neoprene versions (not lace-up version)? Any large in stock?
    • The neoprene is the material used in wet suits, it doesnt breathe and gives off a lot of heat. the Drytex is a breathable material so it doesnt get as hot. We have all sizes in stock. As for your questions on whether the RocketSoc would be appropriate, that is a question for your physician.
  • From Becky Williams at 9/3/2013 4:51 AM
    • My daughter is a gymnast and has sprained her ankle at least 3 times in the last 3 years. She has chronic problems with her ankles during tumbling. I am looking for a good brace that will help prevent further injury's, but has the flexibility for a gymnast. Also she will not be wearing socks under the brace, so we need one that doesn't rub on the ankle bone. Can you recommend the best type of brace for her?
    • The best support with flexibilty would be the DoJoy Stabilizing Pro ankle brace, but the nylon may rub sub, perhaps she could wear a beige elastic ankle sleeve underneath to help prevent rubbing.
  • From Susan S at 11/4/2013 4:39 AM
    • My 16 year old daughter is recovering from a severe ankle sprain (all 4 ligaments) which occurred during volleyball season this year (she was wearing old lace up braces, which she loves). She was in a boot for 4 weeks, and is about 4-5 weeks out of the boot at this time. She is rehabbing, but it is going slowly. She has indoor lacrosse starting soon, and needs new supportive braces (she has weak ankles, has been wearing braces for a while from old sprains). She is not a fan of the rigid braces- finds them very uncomfortable. We like the idea of the lace up Rocket Soc- she likes the security she feels from the lace up concept. Will this provide enough support for her, or do I have to convince her to wear a rigid brace (which she will hate). Tha.nks
    • Susan
      The Rocketsoc is the soft brace that I reccommend to those who need maximal support but do not feel comfortable in rigid ankle braces. It is a little more supportive thatn the lace-up braces and has a strap that will wrap around the heel to give good Heel-Loc support similar to a tape job. If your daughter doesn't like the rigid braces this would be agood alterative
  • From Annie at 12/2/2013 1:49 PM
    • Are these available in white?
    • Annie,
      This brace is only sold in black. There are however 3 styles, the lace up, neoprene and drytex. Thank you for cantacting DJO.
  • From Carla at 1/8/2014 10:32 AM
    • Hello, I have had an Achilles tendon strain since last August. My Orthopod suggested wearing one of those big boots and to "rest" the ankle. I have two labs that need a walk every day and so do I! That big boot wasn't working. I have tried at least 4 types of braces for support, none seem to be working. I live in the mountains so there is a lot of walking up hill. Do you suggest the RocketSoc Ankle support brace and if so what size. I wear a 9M shoe, but it's winter time so I wear thick socks.

      Thank you for your time.
    • Carla
      A ankle brace will not help you Achillies. We do have a brace for Achillies tendonitis called the Aircast Airheel This brace has padding on the heel and back of the brace where the achillies attaches to the heel. Otheer than this brace you could try a hell lift in your shoe to help take some of the stretch off your Achillies. We do not sell the heel lifts but you can purchase them on-line form Alimed.

  • From Kelly Lewis at 1/22/2014 3:32 PM
    • I am a long time basketball player with numerous sprains. I am looking at the Velocity and the Rocketsoc, but cannot tell if one will fit better than the other inside a high top basketball shoe. Is one of these or another product designed toward basketball ankle injuries?
    • Kelly
      The Rocketsoc would be easier to get into a basketball shoe although both would work. Another option is the DonJoy Stabilizing Pro Ankle Brace
  • From Antonio at 3/7/2014 5:47 PM
    • Which ankle brace would be good for me coming of. A dislocated ankle and fracture tibla
    • Antonio
      The best brace for you after those injuries would be our most supportive ankle brace the DonJoy Velocity ankle brace. This brace is a rigid hinged ankle support that fits into your shoe. The Moderate support would sufficiant for you. If the rgid ankle brace does not appeal to you the Rocketsoc would be the next choice.
  • From Marty Brown at 3/29/2014 8:08 AM
    • Hi
      I have sprained my left ankle a few times and now it is week because of the sprains. I'm getting back into running again and need to protect my ankle from twisting and wanted to know which ankle brace to get?
    • Marty
      The Rocketsoc is a good brace to choose. It has great support because of all the strapping and you have the option of a sleeve or lace-up design. The brace will fit into your athletic shoe
  • From CrystaL at 4/8/2014 10:45 AM
    • I have a neurological disease that affects the muscles of my extremities, particularly my lower extremities. As a result, I am constantly rolling and twisting my ankles, and spraining my left ankle. My physical therapist has recommended the DonJoy RocketSoc Ankle Support Brace, but after looking through some of the questions on your site I am wondering if there is a better one out there for me? I am a moderately active person and have four different 5K races/obstacle courses coming up and need the support for my ankle. Any advice would be much appreciated! Thank you!
    • Thank you for your question. The RocketSoc would be an appropriate brace for you situation. You may also consider the DonJoy Stabilizing Speed Pro.
  • From JP at 4/9/2014 2:47 PM
    • In the past I have sprained my right ankle (spraining the lateral ligament mostly) too many times to count, to the point where I now have a little ankle instability and my right foot turns out substantially. It was beginning to cause me to have hip pain before I went to P.T. and they got me to stop trying to artificially turn my foot in when I walk and restrengthen my right glute.

      I wanted to start playing basketball again and wanted to get the RocketSoc, and I have narrow, 9 1/2 feet, so I was going to get a medium size, and I was going to get the lace-up over the drytex. Is that the best choice for me? I am open to other suggestions, but I don't have any active trauma to my ankle (haven't sprained it in years) so I figured I didn't need a completely rigid brace like the Velocity.
    • JP
      The medium is the right size for you. The lace-up may provide more stability. another option is the DonJoy Stabilizing Pro Ankle Brace: The brace is a lace-up brace but with two figure-eight straps similar to a ankle tape job.
  • From Valerie at 4/13/2014 5:43 PM
    • I've been diagnosed with Posterior Tibial Tendonitis Stage II (ruptured tendon). I'm wearing orthotics and wonder if this brace would be better? I'm planning on surgery later in the year.
    • Valerie
      The best ankle brace for that diagnosis is the Aircast PTTD Ankle Brace this brace will give great ankle support and also hasa air bladder under the arch that can be inflated to lift that up and take pressure off of the Posterior Tibial Tendon.
  • From Stephen at 6/8/2014 2:32 PM
    • The peroneus brevus tendon & the peroneus longus tendon in my right ankle both have tears. Trying to avoid surgery that would include a calcaneal osteotomy (heel shift or slide to correct varus heel and stress on tendons). I am currently getting my ankle taped to hold right foot in more pronated position than supination. Will the RocketSoc ankle support accomplish the same goal as taping? What brace would be best for my condition? I need to have my right heel strike while walking to be more on the inside of the heel than the current outside of the heel.
    • Stephen
      The DonJoy Stabilizing Pro Ankle Brace is going to give you better control of getting the foot into a everted position. The brace is more like a tape job than the Rocket soc. It has the two figure of eight straps that can be adjusted to pull your calcaneaous in an everted position taking stress of the peroneus tendons
  • From Kasey at 6/11/2014 11:18 AM
    • Hello! I had ankle surgery (left foot) in 2010 for a torn (surgeon said "shredded") tendon. The Peroneus Brevis Tendon. My left leg is 1 1/2 inches shorter than my right so walking that way forever made the tendon tear. I have the Don Joy Stabilizing Ankle Brace and have worn it off and on since then. Its getting old and worn, but its the lace up, and I have chubby legs, and fibromyalgia, so the laces and the top of the brace hurt my leg. I was looking at the Rocketsoc. Do you think that would work and what size? I feel the brace I have now which is a medium is too small. Maybe its just the laces that don't fit my fat leg! I can't move my ankle outward (like if it were to roll outward) so I use the brace to stabilize and to keep the pain away. I like the looks of the Rocketsoc...Thanks!
    • Kasey
      The Rocketsoc is a good alternative to the Stabilizing ankle Brace you have. You can get it without laces so that should help with the discomfort you were feeling but it will still give you ankle support. The sizing for the Rocketsoc is by shoe size.
  • From Jani Lou at 7/2/2014 5:59 AM
    • I have a torn posterior tibial tendon, I also wear arch supports. Can I wear my arch supports with the Rocket soc, or would you suggest another brace? My ankles have always been weak. Thank you!
    • Yes you can wear both the ankle brace and arch supports
  • From Kasey at 7/8/2014 5:57 AM
    • Hi!
      I asked a question on the Rocketsoc ankle brace... you said it goes by shoe size.. unfortunately mine did not fit. I ordered one from you guys through Ebay, and it was a size small because my shoe size is a womens 8 - 9. Well my calves are 17 inches around, and the brace will not close on my leg. Is there an extension strap I can get or if I get a larger size will that work? I sent an email through ebay per my order but have yet to hear back. I need to return this unless there is an extender I can use. I really want the brace but as it is, it will not fit. Thanks!
    • Kasey
      There is no extension for the Rocketsoc ankle brace, a bigger size may not work since the brace size is based on shoe size not calf circumference. Possibly a different brace such as our lace-up brace the DonJoy Stabilizing Pro will work for you. The size is based on the circumference of your ankle instead of shoe size.
  • From Laurie at 8/7/2014 4:11 AM
    • My son broke his fibula this past season at wrestling. He is very athletic....He has to wear support for sports ..... He plays football, trying to figure out which is the best brace to purchase. the brace is worn and he says it isnt enough support.
    • There are a couple of other braces that could offer more support for him while wrestlying. The DonJoy Stabilizing Pro ankle brace is a lace-up anle brace with two figure eight straps, the brace is similar to getting the ankle taped without the brace loosening after 30 minutes. It is low profile enough to fit into his wrestling shoes. Even though these braces are great braces, nothing is going to be perfect for a wrestler due to the strains his body goes through.
  • From Dan at 9/16/2014 4:17 AM
    • Hi

      I have big problems with my ankles. I love playing football but everytime i have football boots on i roll my ankle which can cause much pain. My ankles have been weak for many years and i need a support i can use with my football boots which provides max support. I am currently just coming back from being 12 weeks out from an ankle injury. Thanks for your help and advice in advance. I currently use ultimate performance supports but i still roll my ankle with them on.
    • Thank you for your question. The RocketSoc is a great choice you can also look at the DonJoy Stabilizing Seep PRO as an option.
  • From EN at 10/13/2014 1:44 PM
    • I have a chronic ankle injury on both my ankles. I am looking for the best support, low profile and non intrusive brace I can find for soccer.


    • Take a look at the DonJoy Stabilizing Pro ankle brace: The brace is a lace-up ankle brace with two figure of eight straps to most feel like ankle tape. The advantage to haveing the brace over tape is that the brace will not loosen up after 20 minutes. The brace will fit into any cleat or shoes
  • From Ashley at 10/17/2014 7:39 AM
    • I am having left ankle pain and instability. It's wearing out trying to compensate for my long term right ankle injury (I was warned that this might happen). I'm looking for a brace to wear daily that will help it not to roll, as it has started to do. I have started walking again recently and am looking for a brace to support it so the problem doesn't progress. Any recommendations? Thanks!
    • Ashley
      Either the rocketsoc or the Don Joy Stabilizing Pro ankle braces will provide stabilization for you when walking.
  • From Mark at 10/21/2014 9:50 PM
    • I am experiencing pain during plantar flexion (pushing my toes pointing downward). I want to get back to playing soccer, but kicking the ball during plantar flexion can aggravate this pain. I don't have any trouble with rolling my ankle. Is this a good brace for this? Which of the 3 styles (lace-up, drytex, neoprene) would be the best?
    • Thank you for your question. The DonJoy RocketSoc Ankle Support Brace will help to stabilize your ankle. It may help to prevent your ankle from going into such an extreme plantar flexion and give support when in plantar flexion. The Neoprene may be too warm and thick for your activities. The Drytex is a more breathable material and simple to put on. The Lace-Up is a nylon material. You can also look at the DonJoy Stabilizing Speed PRO for a more streamline option. If you have additional questions please feel free to contact product support at 888-405-3251.
  • From Ryan at 1/19/2015 7:00 AM
    • I was diagnosed with a grade III sprain of my left ankle this is accompanied with nerve damage on the medial side.
      Im looking for a brace that severely limits the chance of inversion and dorsi flexion
    • Ryan
      If you want to restrict dorsi flexion then you will need to immobilize the ankle completely. No ankle brace will restrict that motion so I would suggest a walking boot. The Don Joy Velocity ankle bracee is our most supportive ankle brace and it will provide the most support for inversion/eversion
