    • Hello, so I was looking at the sizes and I am right on the edge of the Small or Medium as I wear shoe size of 9-9.5. So I am not sure which one I would be better off either the Small which is the end of the range or the Medium which is the beginning of the range. Any suggestions?

    • Would this brace help with foot drop, for times / shoes where I don't want to wear a full-foot knee height AFO?
    • Unfortunately no, for drop foot you would need to wear an AFO. We have the Super LITE AFO, see below:
  • Jean at 7/8/2016 10:47 AM
    • I have hypermobile joints, and my ankles have rolled in the past. I use an aircast brand brace generally, but looking for something supportive but less bulky. Would you suggest this model to supplement the other?
    • The DONJOY PERFORMANCE POD ANKLE BRACE would be a great supplement for your Aircast support since it will give a rigid support on the sides but still have the mobility to move around without having to hinder your movement. It is low profile and ultra thin with adjustable velcro underfoot closure for a better fit.

    Keeps ankle from rolling

    Reviewed by:
    Verified Purchase
    I've tried so many braces, from the most expensive to the cheapest. They're either too tight or too bulky . I've usually had to get a bigger size in shoes cause they were too bulky. I wear a lot of sandals so this brace hasn't caused me any problems. I have a problem called Drop foot and also my ankle rolls inward. This has helped my walking. And now my foot doesn't slip off the brake pedal when I'm at a stop.
    Pros: Great ankle support, Helps with pronation, not too bulky, I can wear sandals
    Cons: Wish the heel was closed off to it doesn't catch on close or sandals when I try to take it off

    So far my therapist says this is the best brace to hold my ankle steady and keep it from rolling - I recommend it to anyone with a weak ankle.
    Pros: The sturdiness for its small size
    Cons: My left side is paralyzed due to a stroke so I can't use my left hand - I have to tie the strap with only my right hand and have to cross over from right to left so having a longer Velcro strap would help BUT all in all I can manage and I simply love this brace.

    Great Brace but needs a little longer velcro

    Reviewed by:
    Verified Purchase
    The brace performs just as described. I really like that aspect. However, the sizing is difficult. Based on shoe size I am a small but based on ankle circumference I am a x-small. I tried both. The small felt a big with a lot of extra velcro. So I tried an x-small. The fit was perfect around the ankle, but under the foot a little more velcro would be helpful. Obviously this is a genetic issue regarding my small ankles (I feel I have avg to narrow feet) and in no way takes away from the brace.
    Pros: Minimal, Feels like taping, repeated use unlike taping, I felt it did not affect my shoe fitting.
    Cons: Non-issue with a little more velcro.

    Almost the perfect brace

    Reviewed by:
    Verified Purchase
    Really great aesthetics's looks well designed. Slightly uncomfortable at first but loosens up with wear. Seems to give very good lateral support.
    Would purchase another for my left foot if some design issues were addressed.
    Pros: Sleek design allows use with many types of shoes. Good lateral support
    Cons: Rubs slightly against the inside talus Discomfort on the top of the foot from the front of the brace. For these reasons I cannot wear it every day.

    My daughter was hesitant because she did not like the bulky brace her doctor had given her. She actually prefers this brace to taping while she practices and plays soccer. Great investment!
    Pros: Low profile Easy to adjust

    I wished I could of gave it more stars but my only issue is that the strap is too short. I order a size " S " but when I tried it on .. it fit good but my strap I had to fight with it cause it doesn't want to stay on I mean something that's $80 the idea of the strap should of been longer
    Pros: It's a comfortable brace
    Cons: But my strap doesn't stay in tact I'm pissed about it way too short

    My daughter plays volleyball year round. We've tried several brands of ankle braces. She loves the fit. It's not bulky in her her shoes. We actually purchased a high top mizuno shoe. We were concerned she couldn't wear an additional brace but it works perfectly. It's easy to put on.

    good brace

    Reviewed by:
    Verified Purchase
    This brace provides excellent support. My ankles are terrible and roll them stepping on uneven ground or cutting too quickly. The beauty of this brace is that it provides excellent stability while maximizing mobility. I tried many different braces and this one provides the best of both worlds as far as that is concerned.

    A downside is that the brace straps over my ankle bone and the tension over my bone causes discomfort and brusing. It could be that my feet/ankles are longer than the brace was designed for and so the brace is not positioned on my foot as designed. But I purchased the appropriate brace size for my foot size.

    Because of this I had to go purchase wrist bands (like what tennis players wear) and wear those over my ankle bones and under the brace strap. This seems to have done the trick as I no longer have pain while wearing the braces.

    Pros: Excellent support - superior mobility
    Cons: Discomfort caused by brave strap putting too much tension on my ankle requiring me to improvising by adding cushion between brave and ankle.
