    • I rolled both of my ankles multiple times playing ball hockey and i actually wear the mcdavid one with strap but i need a change because im tired of lacing them up every games haha

      Would this one make me happy and offer the same protection for my very weak ankles that you can compare to those of Peter Forsberg ??

    • The A60 is going to provide the rigid supports on each side of the ankle to help protect you from rolling, As well it is a pull on style so you don't have to lace it up everytime. It also is cut to a 60 degree angle which provides more stability while on your toes in an athletic position.

    • I and recouping from a broken ankle with ligament damage. my ankle is now unstable and may require surgery in the future. I am wearing the aircast airsport per my doctor. My question is, I am going on a cruise next month can this brace be worn with bare feet or sandals?

  • Roldan at 3/3/2016 6:41 PM
    • I'm a competitive bowler. I slide with my left foot, and last year I rolled my left ankle when I stopped suddenly. There was moisture on the lane. I'm slowly trying to get back to bowling again. When I bowl now my left sliding foot turns inward slightly and I think to myself that I might roll my ankle again. Will the air cast brace help keep my foot straight and prevent rollover or can you suggest a different ankle brace that would help.
    • The A60 will provide mild support to the ankle while you are bowling and may prevent the rolling of the ankle
  • John at 2/24/2016 12:44 PM
    • I have this brace and if possible i would like to obtain an additional pump.
      Do you sell those separately ?
    • The A60 Ankle brace does not come with a pump and does not need to be pumped in any way. I think you must have a different brace.
  • Jeannie at 2/17/2016 2:36 PM
    • I am ordering the aircast A60. The size chart for small goes up to 8.5 for women. I wear a size 8. Would you recommend the small or go to a medium?
    • The small should fit
  • Joe at 2/12/2016 5:31 AM
    • I play rugby and have issues with chronic ankle rolls/sprains. I currently have lace-up type models of ankle braces but they are bulky and uncomfortable. I noticed multiple products now with a neoprene sleeve instead of the laces. Will these types of braces provide the same level of support? Second question are there a slimmer profile making it more comfortable to wear in my rugby boots?
    • The ankle sleeves will not provide as much support as the lace-up that you are currently using. The A60 is slim and should fit into shoes and provide mild ankle support
  • sebastian at 2/10/2016 4:28 AM
    • i broke my ankle two years ago and im starting to run again but my ankle feels a bit loose. the problem is when there is no weight my ankle is loose and moves around. when i step on it, it goes to the position it should be and over long distances, it creates friction and makes my ankle soar. im looking for a brace to keep my ankle in the same position when there isnt any weight on it so there is less friction when running but im not sure which brace to get, DonJoy, Aircast A60 or the Airsport. any tips for my decision would be great. thanks
    • The Aircast Airsport is a good brace to use after the injury that you had. The brace will provide internal and external support but have mosre support once you put your shoe on
  • Ron at 1/23/2016 10:22 AM
  • SKS at 1/21/2016 8:15 AM
    • My shoe size varies between 8.5 and 9. Should I order a small or a medium Airiest A60?

    • Yes it should fit into hockey skates
  • Leroy Devine at 12/9/2015 6:45 AM
    • My son has turned his ankle multiple times. He plays soccer at a very high level and is extremely fast. I am looking for comfortable ankle support that will not slow him down.
    • The don Joy Stabilizing Pro Ankle Brace is a great ankle support that should still allow your son to play at the highest level. The brace is similar to having the ankle taped without the brace getting loose after 30 minutes of sweating. https://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-stabilizing-pro-ankle-brace
  • Nichole at 11/17/2015 9:05 AM
    • My son wears an 11 1/2 shoe, should I order him a medium or large?
      Also, he recently sprained his ankle and has a metatarsal fracture, would the A60 be the best brace for him. He will start playing basketball in 2 weeks.
      Thank you!
    • Nichole
      I would suggest a more supportive brace for your son. The don Joy Stabilizing Pro ankle brace is the same brace that is worn by many college athletes and will provide moderate ankle support
  • Christine at 10/31/2015 5:47 PM
    • Is the A60 good for runners that have had past (but healed) rolling ankle sprains. I need something that prevents rolling to the outside but isn't bulky in my shoe. My current aircast has rubbed away the inside of my running shoe. Thanks.
    • Christine
      The A60 will provide mild ankle support and is low profile enough to fit in your shoe.
  • Eli at 10/20/2015 12:37 PM
    • I have a size 12 foot and I was wondering if the large would be to big or do I want it to be snug and get the medium?
    • Eli
      With a size 12 you will need the large
  • Eli at 10/18/2015 7:48 PM
    • What is the difference between this and the Bionic Ankle Brace?
    • they are the same brace except the bionic has the reflective surface and different colors.
  • Debra Stark at 10/10/2015 7:33 PM
    • I have a fused ankle and I am looking for a brace to help support my ankle when I am just walking around the house. I would be wearing my sneaker or slipper but maybe just socks occassionally.
    • Debra
      The A60 offers mild support that can be worn with or without a shoe. This should be sufficient for just walking around the house.
  • Katie at 10/7/2015 4:58 PM
    • I have thick ankles and calves. Does this item have circumference dimensions? I don't want it to be too tight on my ankle.
    • Katie
      I am sorry we do not have the dimensions of the brace at the top of the brace. This brace is sized by shoe size. You may want to order an ankle brace that is sized by ankle circumference such as the Don Joy Stabilizing Pro ankle Brace https://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-stabilizing-pro-ankle-brace
  • Erin at 9/30/2015 2:00 AM
    • Hi, I'm a hunter/jumper rider and recently broke my right ankle in a riding accident. My job is very active and sometimes requires that I walk over rough terrain, and I also want to return to riding and competing as soon as possible. I'm not weight bearing yet, but I'm looking for something I can use for maximum support when I become weight bearing, and also when doing athletic activities.

      It would be nice if I could find something that would do this and also fit nicely inside my tall boots for riding, although that might be asking a bit much. What are your recommendations?
    • Erin
      The most supportive ankle brace we sell is the Velocity Ankle Brace. It comes with three different support levels and would fit into tennis shoes but might be a fit tough with boots. another option is the Don Joy Stabilizing Pro ankle brace. This brace is for moderate support and would fit into both tennis shoe and boots.

  • Gil at 9/1/2015 4:01 PM
    • Would this brace be a good option for barefoot activities such as judo
    • Yes
      this can be worn and used without shoes and will still provide support
  • Marie at 8/28/2015 6:49 AM
    • I sometimes takes a size women's 8.5 and sometimes a 9. Which size would work better for me?
    • Hello,

      Thank you for contacting Donjoy. This particular brace is made of Spandex material, and it slides on like a sock. A size Small is recommended from a womens shoe size up to an 8 1/2. If you have a wider foot I would recommend going up in size.

      Have a Great Day.
  • chris at 8/25/2015 4:36 PM
    • The Aircast A60 side support is a bit to long on the outside of my calf. How can I reduce the one side of the splint since it's cuts into my calf and is more painful than the injury itself. Will removing the small amount of the plastic splint material cause the ankle support not to work correctly?
    • Chris
      We do not recommend altering the brace in any way, you may need to go with a different ankle support if the A60 is causing pain in other areas. The Don Joy Stabilizing Pro is a great ankle support, fits into a shoe and should not cause any extra pain in the leg.
  • Kelly K at 8/24/2015 8:02 PM
    • I have had past injury in which I had ligament reconstructive surgery many years ago that has done well, but I still have some instability and prone to twisting my ankle. I am very active and looking for something I can wear in athletic/cycling shoes for biking, elliptical, hiking, light crossfit/weights, yoga, and occasional walking/jogging but without added bulk, discomfort, or limited mobility. I was looking at the Aircast A60 or Donjoy Bionic Ankle. Would these be appropriate for my activity level or should I look into something else?

    • Hello,

      Thank you for Contacting Betterbraces.

      Yes, both these braces provide ligament sport to the ankle. The 2 rigid supports on the inside and outside of the ankle will prevent you from rolling the ankle. Both are appropriate to wear during athletic activity. Please contact us with any additional questions at 1-800-553-6019.

      Have a Great Day.
  • Maria at 8/17/2015 5:23 PM
    • I'm looking at this one and the bionic one
      I run ultra and need support when running, my ankle rolls and after a long run I get pain on my ankles and Achilles.
      I do a lot of technical trails and hard terrains so I need a brace or support that will not limit my foot work or movements
    • Maria
      These two braces offer the same support but the A60 is a little lighter wieght than the bionic. The bionic is neoprne material which can be hotter and more bulky.
  • Robert at 8/9/2015 8:39 AM
    • I have mild cp. Its my heel and my ankle that need support. The only braces I see here help one or the other, not both. I also need a brace that I can wear for 10 hours a day with my work boots. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
    • Robert
      If you are looking for something that will cusion the heel while providing ankle support the only brace that will do both is the AirCast Air Heel https://www.betterbraces.com/aircast-airheel-ankle-brace. the brace offers mild ankle support with a air cushion to provide relief for plantar fascitis. all of our moderate ankle braces will provide good ankle and heel support and can be worn all day. The Don Joy Stabilizing Pro is one of my favorites and it should fit into a boot. https://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-stabilizing-speed-pro-ankle-brace
  • Craig at 5/6/2015 5:32 AM
    • Any likelihood the manufacture would be willing to improve the quality of their product? The repetitive complaint of fabric breakthrough is a reoccurring issue. The main area of breakthrough is at the top area where the plastic/fabric meet. I have the same issue and had to resort to sewing a reinforcement piece of fabric to fix the problem. There is no reason why the manufacture could not address this problem and reinforce the breakthrough points so the customers can have a more durable product. The product works for sure but the length of service is marginal at best. Buying a product over an over is not good business in the long run. I can't find any contact info on who actually makes the brace.
    • Craig
      We do appreciate your comments on the A60 ankle brace. Be assured that DJO does have a quality control process that we do follow with all of our products. We take the quality of our products very seriously and if we see a trend in problems with products they will be sent back to us so we can address it. So if you receive a product of ours and it has defects within the 6 month warranty please do not hesitate to let us know so we can replace it and work on fixing the problem

    • I have a mild sprain to the inferior extensor retinaculum and need a brace to support my ankle while walking. Which brace do you recommend?
      Also, my goal is to return to snow skiing next winter. Is there a brace that can be worn in a ski boot?

    • Mary
      The Don Joy Stabilizing Pro ankle brace is a good brace that can be worn in shoes and boots. It is a lace up brace with two figure of eight straps and simulates an ankle tape job. https://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-stabilizing-pro-ankle-brace
  • Richard at 3/30/2015 6:37 PM
    • Is this brace good for everyday use(i.e.walking/standing for work, and using treadmill & bike at the gym)?
      How long does this brace tend to last if worn everyday? Previous braces that I have used, off the shelf from pharmacy's, don't seem to last as long as I would like before they start to stretch out and not seem as effective.
    • Richard
      The brace can be used for everyday use and it has a 6 month warranty
  • Jules at 3/28/2015 3:57 PM
    • I sprain my ankle a lot due to instability. It is always the anterior talofibular ligament that is sprained. It also usually stops hurting in a day or two. I usually exercise by running and would like a brace that does not have as much bulk. What brace would you recommend?
    • Jules
      There are more ligaments that can be sprained with a lateral ankle sprain, the talofibular ligament is just the most common. I would suggest either the A60 or the Don Joy Stabilizing Pro. They both are low profile but the Stabilizing Pro will provide more protection than the A60. https://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-stabilizing-pro-ankle-brace
  • Mort at 3/21/2015 2:08 PM
    • I dislocated my ankle about 50 years ago and when they reset it they did not reset it correctly and my right foot is not parrelel to my leg bone. All my foot bones have fused together and when I walk my right ankle tools out to the right. Will this brace help me to stabilize my ankle from rolling out ?

    • Mort
      The A60 provide mild ankle support. You may want a brace that offers a little more support, such as the AirCast Air Port Ankle brace. The brace is simlar to the A60 but will offer more stability. https://www.betterbraces.com/aircast-airsport-ankle-brace
  • Kena at 2/9/2015 4:09 PM
    • Hi - I just got a pair of Small A60's. I had broken my ankle in 3 places some years ago. My shoe size is mens 7-7.5 and the ankle diameter measurement is 12". When I put them on it is difficult to get the ball of my foot thru the sleeve and the band under my foot feels lumpy - should I have gotten a Med pair. I got them for running and tennis to keep from rolling my ankle. Since I was on the borderline between the 2 sizes I thought the smaller size would be less bulky. Thanks - k
    • Kena
      Since the smaller size is too tight then you will need to go with the bigger size.
  • Jennifer at 9/8/2014 1:31 PM
    • My daughter is a competitive gymnast and has had multiple ankle and foot sprains. Her ankle is healed now, but is generally weak and prone to injury. She hates wearing tape and wants a brace. Is the Aircast A60 a good brace for her? I did not see any other questions related to gymnastics, specifically.
    • Jennifer
      The A60 is a minimal supportive ankle brace but it is low profile and easy to put on. If you would like something with a little more support the Aircast Airsport is more supportive than the A60 but equally easy to put on and wear without a sock as a gymnast would do. https://www.betterbraces.com/aircast-airsport-ankle-brace
  • Jeremiah Warren at 8/27/2014 5:19 PM
    • How much will I get if I order them? Does it come in a pack of 2 or just one? Because I am a high school football player and my position is Full back and my ankle's roles way to much and its stopping me from being the best I can be. I really need 2 for both my ankles and if I want 2 will it sat around 50 dollars or around 100?
    • Jeremiah
      The price is per brace so if you need two you will need to order two
  • Diane at 4/5/2014 7:32 PM
    • I have been suffering with tarsal tunnel syndrome for the last year. I recently have gone to sports medicine and I'm going through therapy. I am a runner and a waitress and I work extended hours on my feet. This injury is very painful and I'm looking for ankle and foot support while on my feet. I have it in both feet the right is worse than the left. Can you please recommend the right brace! So I can continue working and running without pain!
    • Diane
      I would suggest the aircast Airlift PTTD brace for someone with tarsal tunnel. The brace will protect the ankle but also has a air bladder under the arch of the foot that can be inflated to take pressure off the tibial nerve witch runs under that part of the foot. The brace is a little bulkier than the Aircast A60 so you will need to open up your running shoes to get it in. https://www.betterbraces.com/aircast-airlift-pttd-brace
  • brandy at 12/21/2013 3:05 PM
    • My daughter has suffered now 2 stress fractures of the navicuiar bone in her foot. The doctor recently has said it is due to her weak ankles. Her ankles often give out and interfered with her running form with her trying to compensate for them not giving out which is what they say has caused her fracture. She is a pole vaulter and we are looking for a brace that she can wear in her spikes to help with supporting her ankle that will fit and not be bulky . She already wears ankle braces for volleyball but they will not fit comfortable in her track spike. We are just needing something to hopefully give her ankle a little more support and help them both from giving out. She is also in pt right now to help strengthen them. Would this be a good one or would you suggest another?
    • Thank you for your question. The A60 will offer the most support of the braces we have that will fit in track spikes. If this option does not work she may want to have her ankles taped for practice and meets.
  • kathy speno at 11/2/2013 12:05 PM
    • I had a total reconstruction on my ankle a year ago and I have been dealing with trying to rehab it so that it is not painful to walk or do my job. I am a Personal Fitness Trainer and I have used a tie up brace as well. My job is very physical and demanding.
      It has been getting somewhat better and I love to cycle. I have been told that I will need to fuse my ankle and I have bone on bone. I need something that will help in keeping me pain free. I tried the Don Joy Velocity brace and could not stand it. Very uncomfortable. Any suggestions??
    • Kathy
      Take a look at the donJoy Rocketsoc ankle brace on our website: https://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-rocketsoc-ankle-support-1504. this brace is used for people who have chonic ankle aprains so it has a lot of support but more comfortable than the Velocity. It fits into your shoes and you can use it for both activities and non-activities
  • Bill at 9/24/2013 3:37 AM
    • I used to be quite active with backpacking, sprint tiathlons, cycling, etc. but a few years ago my lower lumbar was fused and I have problems with stability/balance on my right ankle due to lower back nerve trauma and muscle weakness in my leg. It has been impoving but after walking awhile the ankle becomes fatigued and less supportive. Would the Aircast A60 or another model of ankle support be of any value to give me more stability and extend my time walking?
    • Bill,
      The A60 offers light to moderate support. It is an excellent brace for a little added support. If you are looking for something with moderate support I would recommend one of the DonJoy Stabilizing braces, and for simi-ridged support you may consider the AirCast Airsport ankle Brace. I hope this information helps you out. If you have any more questions please don't hesitate to ask.
      Thank you.

    • I am a dancer, and I used to play volleyball and basketball. I run quite often and I've sprained both my ankles multiple time, I have had a few stress fractured and torn ligaments. I need an ankle brace that will be able to fit inside my jazz shoes and that will be flexible so that I can still point my toes and move comfortably during class. Would you recommend this brace?
    • Hello Miranda,

      The a60 is your best choice, it's the most streamline brace we have that provides ankle support. It has a medial and lateral rigid support. Material is made of spandex, the portion that surrounds your foot.

      Thanks for Contacting Donjoy.

    • I had surgery for a torn Achilles about 16 weeks ago and have just completed physical therapy. I am 63 years old, an active golfer and looking for some support for my left ankle. I am a right handed golfer. Will the A60 provide support when shifting through the swing for the outside ankle.
    • Hello, Bob -

      Yes the Aircast A60 will support the outside of your ankle during your golf swing. It is designed with medial and lateral rigid uprights to support your ankle during that motion.

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

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!

    • My daughter plays travel softball and just rolled her ankle, I am looking for a brace that will offer support but not limit her running speed. Which brace would you recommend.
    • The DonJoy Pro Stabilizing ankle. It is designed like an Athletic Trainer would tape an ankle for competition. Limited rolling on either side but allowing for Dorsal or Plantar flexion.
  • Ben at 11/4/2012 5:32 PM
    • I have now rolled both my ankles playing intense tennis (not enough to cause me to stop playing) but I am concerned that I will continue to roll my ankles or have a serious sprain. Not having a significant sprain thus far, is the Aircast A60 the best option?
    • The A60 is a lightweight sleeve with a plastic stay on the outside of the ankle, helping keep the ankle stable and to deter against rolling over the outside of your foot. This brace ios recommended for those with mild ankle instability.
  • Austin at 4/2/2012 4:57 PM
    • I play Ultimate Frisbee and the cuts and running a have to do is pretty brutal on the ankles. Does the brace interfere with running and speed? The design looks great but will it limit my vertical and speed?
    • Hi Austin,

      The A60 is a low profile ankle support and will provide mild-moderate ankle stability without limiting your vertical or speed.

      Have a nice day.

    • I have an ankle sprain from volleyball. I've been using the Airsport ankle brace for the last 7 years and it's wearing down, so it's time for a new brace. Do you recommend I get the same one (AirSport) or try the A60?
    • Airsport Ankle Brace is recommended for athletes who've had an injury not the A60.

    • I'm having problems deciding between the A60 and the Air Sport. I've ruptured two of the three major ligaments in my left ankle. I have major instability problems; my ankle constantly inverts. I'm trying to avoid surgery through physical therapy but I'm finding I need a brace for daily wear. My doctor doesn't want me to wear my Don Joy Velocity as an everyday brace because he wants my muscles to strengthen and work harder to imitate the stability actions of the ligaments I lost. I also have an Air Cast but that still allows my ankle to roll and doesn't provide as much stability as I would like. I'm leaning more towards the A60 because it's less bulky, but I would like a second opinion.

      Thank you
    • Hi Caitlin,

      The A60 will provide moderate support. I also reccommend the DonJoy Stabilizing ankle. It is more supportive than the A60, but not as much as the Velocity.

      If you have additional questions, please call 1-800-553-6019.

      Have a nice day.

    • Do you recommend the A60 Brace for volleyball?
    • The A60 would be a good brace for them if they are only having lateral issues. If they need support on the medial side as well, then I would suggest looking at the Airsport.

    • Hello.

      I suffered a Weber C fracture just over 2 months ago playing Rugby when I slipped and fell awkwardly, dislocating my foot. It was a complete fracture of the fibula about 3 inches or so above the ankle, this required a plate. I also damaged the deltoid ligament which required cleanup surgery and the syndesmosis ligaments which required a fixation screw through the bones.

      I wish to resume sprinting and Non-Contact Rugby soon after my syndesmosis screw is removed. Would this brace be sufficient in preventing re injury to the ligaments? The scarring/plate in my leg extends to about 6-7 inches from the floor, would this brace cover it to reduce the pain if I was to get direct contact to that area? If not, which brace should I look at? The brace must fit in a football/soccer boot comfortably.

      Thank you
    • The best product for your condition is the Donjoy Velocity ES brace. Should you have any other questions please let us know.

    • Do you know how the A60 works for golfers? I recently had a stress fracture and would like to know if this product will help. Thanks.
    • The A60 is going to give you support on the outside of your ankle to help keep it from rolling. It will give you some support as you walk around the golf course, depending how far out you are from your fracture, you may need to do something a little stronger. If you are just recently out you could look at the Air stirrup Ankle brace for a little more support. If you are further along, the A60 will work just fine.

    • I wear donjoy ankle braces right now for basketball and they are a little bulky but what I like is that they do not allow any inversion or eversion or the ankle at all. The A60 looks lots less bulky but how does it compare to the rigidness of the donjoy for eversion and inversion.
    • The Aircast A60 Ankle Support will only provide support on the lateral aspect of the ankle. The following are a couple of options that maybe less bulky than what you have, but still provide you medial and lateral support.
      Aircast AirSport, DonJoy Stabilizing ankle, DonJoy Rocketsoc.

    • Over the past several years, I have a problem with my left ankle rolling to the outside. The last two occasions of this happening have caused me to fall to the ground in public places. I am now very concerned that this will be a reoccurring and embarrassing problem for me. What type of ankle support would you recommend to give me the confidence that my ankle will not roll? Also, I need a support that fits in an 8 shoe size and will be comfortable for me to wear on a daily basis. I'm am a avid hiker and also work in my garden, so I would like something I can depend upon for support.

      Thank you for the information.

    • Does the a60 ankle brace allow normal movement? I want to stabilize my ankles, but i need a brace that allows full jumping and running movement. Im going to play and practice basketball in this brace.
    • Hi Hawk,
      The Aircast A60 Ankle Support allows normal Dorsi-Flexion and Plantar-Flexion at the ankle. It only limits ankle Inversion and Eversion to reduce the risk of injury. It wil not hinder your jumping.

  • Jeremy at 2/28/2011 5:21 PM
    • I'm an ultra runner and am looking for a good right side ankle support....will the A60 suffice for long distance running? im a size 11.5-12 running shoe, what size would you recommend?
    • The A60 ankle support will be a good choice for lateral ankle support during running. With your size of foot, I would suggest getting the large size.

    • I am an obese female with larger than average ankle and calf and am prone to at least moderate swelling on a daily basis. I am three months post severe ankle sprain ( and tibial plateau fracture). The air splint my orthopod gave me is molded for ankle curves I don't have and cuts into my foot and ankle, adding to my pain. I've just started full weight bearing and find I am still in need of moderate support. This brace is advertised as preventative. But, will it serve as support for a recovering sprain as well? Also, will it stretch to comfortably fit a larger ankle and lower leg?
    • The A60 is intended for prophylactic or light support. It would not be appropriate for your stage of healing.
      More appropriate braces include the Air-Stirrup Universe, Velocity, or RocketSoc ankle braces.
  • SRO at 12/5/2010 10:30 AM
    • Are the side supports for the A60 brace as rigid as for the Airsport brace?
    • The A60 stays are more flexible than the airsport, as the A60 is designed to be used without a preexisting injury.
  • L&J at 7/1/2010 11:10 AM
    • Visually this item looks significantly lees bulky than the Airsport Ankle Brace. Is that the case?
    • Yes, the A60 is made up of a thin breathable material and has a 60deg molded plate that contours to the leg for less bulk and protects the ankle from rolling, and preventing injury.
  • Andres Ramirez at 6/30/2010 8:30 PM
    • I play soccer, is the Aircast A60 recommended for soccer use? Will it interfere with my shin guards? I want something low profile. Are these the best support for both my ankles during play? Thanks.
    • Yes, The Aircast A60 Ankle Support is great for soccer. The low profile design will not interfere with your gear and the molded 60deg support will protect your ankle from injury.

    • What are the side stabilizers made of on the Aircast A60 Ankle Brace?

      I'm recovering from a serious sprain and (optimistically) hoping to go hiking in three weeks. I have excellent boots but obviously need something to support and protect the ankle on the trail.
    • The supports on the Aircast A60 are made up of a rigid yet flexible plastic material that is molded to a 60 degree angle. This ankle brace is ideal for wearing with your hiking boots. It will give you the support and stability while walking on the uneven terrain.
  • Tony at 4/25/2010 8:01 PM
    • I have injured my right ankle numerous times hiking due to my weak ankle rolling out and causing injury. Will the Aircast A60 give me the needed support while hiking on the trails irregular surfaces?
    • The Aircast A60 is a great brace to wear while hiking. The 60 degree molded supports help provide ligament support and help prevent ankle rollovers while active. It is light breathable fabric and low profile design fits easily and comfortably inside any athletic shoe.
  • Tennis Ankle Brace at 3/27/2010 1:27 PM
    • Based on what I read, I have a grade 1 ankle sprain from an inversion that happened around Thanksgiving 2009. I use a Mueller brace (no plastic, just the lace-up with cross-straps) now. I’m still having some issues and wonder if one of these aircast A60’s or the airsport might be better. The sport is tennis. Trying to take it easy but the ankle is just not completely back.

      What is your recommendation of a brace for tennis? It seems like what causes the pain is more of a twisting motion to the left off my right foot.
    • The Aircast A60 is an excellent Ankle Brace for Tennis and other court sports. In fact, Tennis Pro Andy Murray wears the Aircast A60 Ankle Brace. It fits into a tennis shoe nicely and will give you the stability and protection you need. The support system is far stronger than what you have with the you lace up Mueller Ankle Brace.

    • Is it light weight and can it be worn in any shoe without causing bulk? also I have found that shoe size is hard to find a fit by due to having larger calves, so If I wear a 7.5 womens shoe what size would you recommend.
    • The Aircast A60 is light weight and can be worn in most shoes without an issue. As with all ankle braces there is some bulk added that will require you to loosen the the shoe laces a bit. That is something you'd have to with almost any fairly supportive ankle brace like the A60. For your size shoe you would need a Small. You can see the size chart in the size chart tab on this page.
  • Alison at 3/19/2010 3:27 PM
    • This brace looks like it's made up of fabric...how does it provide support? Is it better support than if I taped my ankle?
    • The Aircast A60 is made of a fabric called Breath-O-Prene which is designed to keep your foot cool and dry. It provides support with the help of a stabilizer located on either side of the ankle (the gray strap in the photo), it is molded at a 60 degree angle to help protect against ankle sprains and rollovers.
