Enhance Knee Brace Comfort With This Undersleeve Knee Brace Sock

The Stabilizing PRO Ankle Brace is designed to meet the needs of demanding athletes. It features 800D ballistic nylon and reinforced eyelet area for outstanding performance and durability. A full circumferential elastic strap secures all strapping and provides tibia/fibula compression and stability. Lace-up design and trimable figure-8 strapping locks the calcaneus into place and controls inversion/eversion. Removable, articulated medial/lateral stays enhance proprioception and stability. Fits easily into an athletic or street shoe. Universal to fit right and left.

A recent study of over 2,000 high school football players proves that wearing the Stabilizing Ankle Brace reduces the incidence of acute ankle injury by 61%. Wearing the brace did not increase the incidence or severity of acute knee injuries or other lower extremity injuries. Bracing also offers a low-cost alternative to athletic tape.

    • Hi, I am 16 months post-op from achilles rupture (complete tear) ad am back to being active in volleyball (indoor/outdoor 3/week). My left achilles is the one that had surgery but also feeling soreness/tenderness in my right achilles as well. And the left achilles area is now experiencing tendonitis in the inside part of my foot - likely overcompensating during my injury from inability to use proper heel; thus developing said condition. Anyway, which brace would fit my needs? I'm assuming I would need a brace that has heel coverage and not one that is cut out in that area?
    • The DonJoy Performance Trizone Calf Support, https://www.betterbraces.com/trizone-calf-support, and the Aircast Airheel, https://www.betterbraces.com/aircast-airheel-ankle-brace, would be good options for your Achilles Tendonitis.

    • My son in a size 15 shoe and he had a bad sprained ankle we're looking for something that will help support his ankle.
      Will they fit inside his shoe and do they come in pairs?
    • The DonJoy Stabilizing Pro Ankle Braces are designed to fit in shoes. Please reference the size chart to make sure you order the correct size since the sizing is based off the ankle circumference instead of shoe size. These are not sold in pairs, they are sold as 1 brace each.
  • JP at 5/9/2016 8:31 AM
    • I have severe pronation with both ankles. I do PT for them, especially after bilateral knee replacement 3 years ago. In three weeks, I am going trekking, and know that ankle instability even in hiking boots can be problematic. Do you have a product to recommend, even one that I could use on a daily basis.?This is for walking/hiking/trekking. Thanks. jp
    • The DonJoy Stabilizing Pro ankle brace is a good brace that can be worn everyday. The brace will provide ankle suuport and can be worn in most shoes.

    • Hi - I have Peronial tendinitis and am going on a hiking trip this summer. I already use one of your braces for when I run and workout but it is too bulky for the hiking shoes I need to buy. Is there a lightweight brace you can recommend? Thank you!
    • A lighter brace will also mean lighter support. The Aircast A60 ankle brace is a thign material brace with two plastic stays and offers mile anle support. https://www.betterbraces.com/s-port-all-back-support-w-shorts

    • Does it matter which strap is wrapped first when stabilizing for an Eversion sprain?
    • For an Eversion Sprain strap the inside strap first and the tightest, then the outside strap

    • Last year I suffered a Grade 2 deltoid ligament sprain this injury was probably the worst injury I`ve had in my football career. I took the precautions and let me self-heal a week after the injury and played in the super bowl the following Saturday with my fellow teammates early November. Months later I had pain my Achilles and felt a throbbing pain in my right ankle. I started rehab in April consistently and also May. During the summer, the rehab was on and off. Now I would like to know what ankle brace I should purchase to help stabilize and also correct my walking motion in my right foot.
    • The DonJoy Stabilizing Pro Ankle Brace is a good brace to wear for stability and prevention of further ankle injury. The brace should fit easily into a shoe.
  • Wendy at 12/17/2015 4:15 PM
    • I have posterior tibial tendon dysfunction. I typically wear the PTTD aircast brace when walking around but I'd like to find a less bulky but supportive brace to fit into a ski boot. Any ideas?
    • The Aircast Airlift PTTD is the only brace that addresses PTTD specifically. Any of our other ankle braces will provide ankle support but not specifically PTTD.
  • David at 11/26/2015 6:20 AM
    • My foot measures at 13" so it fits a Large. However, my foot is fairly wide. Would I have difficulty lacing up a size Large? Would the XL size be too loose on my ankle?
    • David
      If your circumference is a large then the large brace should fit you even with a wide foot
  • Robyn at 11/24/2015 7:34 AM
    • I have broken and sprained both ankles numerous times and now they roll frequently and I fall. My Dr. Advised me to get the stabilizing pro ankle brace for each ankle. I am on medicare and I saw that you do not take medicare. I am on disability and cannot afford to buy them outright unfortunately. Are there any other places that carry your braces that do take medicare? I have a box of braces that do not work. I still manage to roll the ankles and my bones break. I am tired of all the pain from the sprains and breaks. This is the best brace I have seen. Thank you for your time.

      Please copy and paste this link to contact your local Don Joy sales rep. The Rep can get you an ankle brace and bill Medicare.

    • I need a brace to help with arthritis of my left ankle. When I walk I feel sharp pain and it feels like my ankle will give. I use the A60 but feel it does not help with the pain. Is there a brace to help with the pain when I walk?
    • Braces will not help with general pain in the ankle only keep the ankle stable to prevent further injury.
  • Susan Takemoto at 10/16/2015 12:38 AM
    • I bought this for my 15 year old soccer player who has sprained the same ankle 3-4 times in the last 3 years. It's the right size but because she has a wide foot the laces barely reach the velcro (and are probably becoming detached). Is that okay?
    • Susan
      If you purchased her the Stabilizing Speed Pro and the laces do not reach the velcro the brace is too small and you should go up a size.
  • ds at 9/20/2015 12:01 PM
    • What is the difference between the Aircast Airsport Ankle Brace and the DonJoy Stabilizing PRO in terms of ankle protection and ease of use? I am an avid runner and soccer player. Thanks!
    • The Airsport and the Stabilizing Pro ankle brace are both for moderate ankle protection. The Stabilizing Pro is similar to an ankle tape with the exception of getting loose after 30 minutes of sweating. The brace fits into a show well. The Airsport is a sportier version of an ankle stirrup brace so it is a little bulkier in your shoe and more rigid.
  • Bhendie97 at 9/4/2015 8:12 PM
    • how tall is the brace i'm looking for something shorter because i have pain in my Peroneus Tertius muscle. If you have a different recommendation for the pain i am having i would appreciate that as well!
    • The brace is 8" tall

    • I rolled my ankle and I am looking for a good brace to wear with a shoe while walking, running, and working out. I also wear a size 16 shoe out that makes a difference.
    • Brian
      The Don Joy Stabilizing Pro Ankle Brace would be the best for your ankle. The measuring is done with a ankle circumference.
  • Michael at 8/9/2015 10:59 AM
    • My wife had a stroke at the age of 37, as a result her left foot pronates in drastically causing her a lot of pain if she spends much time on her feet.
      One relief that she gets is if she wears her expensive hiking boots, however this is not a realistic day to day solution.
      Which of your braces would you recommend?
    • Michael
      I would suggest the Velocity ankle brace. It is a hinged ankle brace and if worn in a shoe should help your wifes ankle. YOu would only need to get the moderate support for your wife. http://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-velocity-ankle-brace
  • Harrison at 6/11/2015 7:00 PM
    • My measurement is exactly 14". Should I purchase a Large (13"-14")or X-Large (14"-15")?
      Thank you!
    • We always suggest going up to the next size to make sure it is not too tight. I would suggest the XL based on this measurement.
  • Diane at 5/7/2015 8:14 AM
    • I understand how to take a measurement from the sizing chart but if the athlete has an extra wide foot would you recommend ordering a size larger?
    • The brace should fit the size based on your measurement even if the athlete has a wide foot.
  • Ron at 4/16/2015 11:14 AM
    • Hi, I'm looking for a brace to use while skateboarding after several ligament tears over the last ten years. I'm always told whatever brace i get should fit in my shoe properly and allow movement but they fit poorly into my shoe giving it a bulky feel. On top of that my movement is too restricted to be able to get the kind of maneuverability I need and there is usually a lot of uncomfortable pressure points. What makes your product different then many I have used in the past regarding the problems I have.
    • In order to stabilize the ankle after several sprains the brace is going to have to restrict some motion. If you want a brace that doesn't do that then a basic ankle sleeve is what you are looking for. Low stability, more movement low profile. The DonJoy Stabilizing Pro Ankle Brace is very similar to having your ankle taped except that this brace will not loosen after 30 minutes as taping the ankle would. We offer many different braces that will give you varying amounts of stability, the Stabilizing Pro is moderate stability, will fit into your shoe and will allow full up and down movement of the ankle.
  • Cali at 2/13/2015 3:53 PM
    • My orthopedic just gave me this brace-and I think its a little big. Will it still work?
    • Yes, the brace should still work you will just need to make sure the straps and laces are tight to give you the support

  • Panos at 9/30/2014 4:52 PM
    • Can I wear the PRO while swimming?
    • Yes, make sure to rinse in tap water and let it air dry afterwards.
  • Tracy at 7/25/2014 6:10 AM
    • Many years ago I had an injury to my ankle, torn/stretched ligaments. I constantly have the problem of lack of stability and my ankle turning. I use a lace up brace when working out and hiking-gives some support but not enough (still turns on me) We are fixing to do a mud run/obstacle 5k - will this work for me or what do you recommend?
    • This brace is a lace up ankle brace with two figure eight straps that should give you more stability than just the lace up brace.
  • Liz at 7/10/2014 7:27 PM
    • I have a DonJoy stabilizing brace that I will soon start using. Do you have directions that would give information on how tight the brace should be to use it correctly. I was told very tight but when doing so I have deep indentations when I remove it. I did not know if you could have it firm but not tight and have it work appropriately. Thank you.
    • The fit should be snug, but comfortable. It will be somewhat of a personal preference, some people like it more snug than others. The brace should not shift around, yet it should not cause discomfort from being too tight.
  • Jeannie hart at 6/15/2014 4:41 PM
    • I have ankle tendinitis. What product do you recommend?
    • The DonJoy Stabilizing Pro will give you moderate support of the ankle and therefore decrease pain. If you have tendonitis of the posterior tibialis tendon then the Aircast airlift Ankle Brace would be best. http://www.betterbraces.com/aircast-airlift-pttd-brace This brace has a air bladder under the arch of the foot that can be inflated to lift up the arch taking pressure off that tendon.
  • Brian C. at 6/13/2014 2:31 AM
    • i went to my doctor with a swelling ankle and tenderness/pain at my outside ankle bone, on my right foot. doctor said I have peroneal tendinopathy, and recommended that i get an ankle brace with figure 8 straps. i have so far tried three different kinds and they are one size fits most and I am not most. However, the ones that had some stays or rigid sides relived the tenderness at my ankle bone. I stand all day at work and most of my movement is lateral as i stand at a work table. I also have a flat arch and arthritis in the bones in the middle of my foot; where I do wear an ace bandage brace. Is there a brace you would recommend? My foot size is 13 wide and ankle circumference of 14"-15". Thank you in advance for your time and response.
    • The Stabilizing PRO sounds like it is exactly what your doctor is asking for. It has rigid piece on each side of your ankle and figure 8 strapping. The brace comes in various sizes, one of which should accommodate your ankle. The measurements for this brace are taken from the base of your heel, up to a 45 degree angle across the ankle bones, and over the top of the foot (where your shoe laces would tie). if you are 14"-15" and XL would be appropriate.
  • Clint W at 5/4/2014 8:37 AM
    • I am a bullfighter and recently suffered a severely dislocated ankle, torn ligament in ankle and a fracture in the back of the ankle. The dislocation required screws be put in to bring everything back together. Also sustained a fractured tibia just below my knee on the same leg. Was wanting to know if this brace would help me with stability once I am able to return to the arena?
    • With that type of injury to your ankle you may want to use a maximum supportive ankle brace. We would suggest the Velocity Ankle Brace ES.
  • Amee at 12/24/2013 7:31 AM
    • My daughter recently suffered an ankle injury in gymnastics after months of sporadic heel/ankle pain and ankle rolling. X-rays showed that she has a congenital anomaly called an accessory navicular bone in each foot which is causing excessive stretching of the tendons attached to this bone during athletic activities. Her orthopedic doctor has recommended that she utilize an ankle brace with arch support during athletic activities to lessen her pain and chance of injury. He recommended the Ossur GameDay ankle brace with stays. DJO Global is a network provider recommended by my insurance, so I am trying to determine which of the ankle braces that you offer would be best for this problem. My daughter does gymnastics as well as plays volleyball and basketball. Would you recommend the Donjoy Pro Ankle Support or would one of the Aircast models or ProCare Lace-Up be better options?? She has to have substantial arch support due to the positioning of that extra bone in addition to the ankle support. Thank you!
    • The Stabilizing Pro Ankle Brace is a very good ankle brace used to prevent ankle injuries. The arch support may be a little lacking unless you use the figure eight strap to pull up on her arch. Another option for you is the Aircast PTTD Airlift ankle brace: http://www.betterbraces.com/aircast-airlift-pttd-bracee This brace has both ankle support and a inflatable air pocket under the arch to give arch support. This brace might be a better choice for your daughter.
  • Charlotte K. Smith at 12/21/2013 9:46 AM
    • Had a fx tibia where it attaches to ankle. Plate and several pins installed. What brace would be most comfortable and secure to wear in a ski boot.
      Please advise, thank you.
    • The Stabilizing Pro will offer you a great deal of support. The compression and strapping combined with the medial and lateral stays will give you compression and stability. If the stays are uncomfortable in the boot, they can be removed.
  • Kyle at 9/11/2013 2:41 PM
    • Would you recommend this brace for a cross country runner with weak ankles?
    • Yes, this brace is used by football, basketball, soccer and baseball players. It is designed to be used for any athletic activity to help support the ankle.
  • Doug at 8/30/2013 10:14 AM
    • What circumference measurements are associated with the various sizes (S,M,L, etc.)? Thanks.
    • The circumference of the heel up around the front of the leg where you have the crease where the ankle bends.
  • Trey at 5/29/2013 12:14 PM
    • I'm coming off a non surgical ankle fracture and I am looking for a brace for regular/athletic activity - baseball/basketball/hiking/hunting. Also, what size would be best for a mens size 10 shoe?
    • The Donjoy Pro Ankle brace is similar to having your ankle taped. It slides on like a sock, laces up and has 2 stirrups to prevent inversion/eversion. It's appropriate if your Physician has cleared you to return to athletic activities. If you would like a more rigid brace I recommend the Velocity. As far as sizing, measure from the base of your heel to the top of your ankle, then look at size chart: http://www.betterbraces.com/donjoy-velocity-ankle-brace

Durability suspect.

Prescribed by doctor due to osteoarthritis and no cartilage in the outside of the ankle joint. Support and comfort is good but durability is suspect. I have worn it 25 to 30 hours working around my place and a couple rounds of golf. The bottom of the heel pocket is split and frayed.

Tennis matches and Training

Reviewed by:
I have been using these for many years for tennis matches and training about 4 days per week. The braces are fantastic, but for tennis, they wear out unusually quickly. The back of the brace that covers the heel breaks after about 4 - 5 months of use, such that only strands of the brace remain. I order new ones, but I imagine the designers did not intend for that area to fail so quickly. It's good for sales since I buy two new ones every 5 months or so, but I have a basket full of perfectly good braces in every way but the heel area. If you could design that with stronger material, it would be great.
