Summary: This was a good alternative to the regular Velcro ankle brace I had before. I never had a problem with my ankles while playing basketball when I was wearing these, and they didn't seem to affect my play at all. I bought these years ago, and the Velcro is just now starting to wear out. I'm going to look around for something that doesn't use Velcro, but I might just buy this one again.
Summary: Great support for the price. I found other ankle support "sleeves" for the same price and decided to get this instead. I sprained my ankle on the tennis courts and had to use this for a month or so to heal up and re-strengthen my ankle. Through-out the month or so of using this, it never became odorous, but I would think you could just throw this in a washing machine if it did (never tried it though).
Summary: Bought this item after treatments for tendonitis. It's very easy to put on and provides warmth, stability and support. It's washable neoprene type fabric with hook & loop closures adjustible to fit your ankle with and without socks. I found it more comfortable to wear thin ankle socks under the support and when removing it, I fold back the flaps to "stick" them in place so they dont stick to anything else while putting on or taking off.
Summary: I am 5 fee 7 inches and about size 9.5 in US shoe size. Thi was too small for my feet. The strap on the top of my foot can barely closed and it kept opening. It should be bigger. I can imagine people with bigger feet....
Summary: This brace did not fit on my husband's swelled ankle. It also does not give the type of support we expected or needed. Should have sent it back but decided to keep it due to shipping costs. Only buy it if you need a little support for a smallish ankle during sports or the mildest of sprains IMHO.
