Description

The Sports Ankle Support provides stability to the ankle joint during intense activity, protecting against sprains and lateral twists.

The Sports Ankle Support features a breathable knitted fabric, consisting of ventilation zones, which allows for heat and sweat dissipation during exercise. Gradient compression is also engineered into the fabric to support muscle activity and assist with blood flow to the ankle joint, helping to reduce any swelling.

Similar to the MalleoTrain S ankle brace, the adjustable strap system featured in the Sports Ankle Support minimises the risk of sprains under increased stress. Ideal for athletes and individuals engaging in jumping activity and sports with start-stop situations.

We recommend using the MalleoTrain S or MalleoTrain Plus if you have an injury or existing ankle pain and the Sports Ankle Support if you are looking for prevention and stability without an existing injury.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is this different to the MalleoTrain Plus?

As opposed to the MalleoTrain Plus, the Sports Ankle Support has no gel inserts. Additionally it's made from a different weave that's more breathable and higher in compression, making it better for short use in a preventative manner.

Will this fit inside my sport shoes?

The slim design, lightweight material and anatomical fit mean that the Sports Ankle Support fits comfortably in even the most snug shoe. This one is great for soccer!

Will this prevent me from rolling my ankle?

The Sports Ankle Support minimises rolling of the ankle and guides the foot into a better movement. However the only way to fully prevent the ankle rolling is to fully immobilise it.

Do you wear this under or over socks?

This is best worn directly on skin under socks to get the most support.

Grade 2 Spraib

I had a grade 2 sprain from volleyball, took me about 3 weeks to get back to 80% and jumping with little pain. The brace helped a lot in keeping the ankle stable. Keep in mind that the brace doesn't magically heal you. It is on you to heal yourself.

Hi Alex, thanks for leaving a review! We're glad the Sports Ankle Support helps stabilise your ankle after your volleyball injury. Its compression knit fabric and figure 8 strap make it a great choice for the job. And yes, you're 100% right. Braces work best when combined with other care methods like RICE and physiotherapy. We wish you luck in your next game! Cheers :)

Excellent support for sprain

Ordered the xs for my 9yo son who had a severe ankle sprain and it fits and supports very well. The ankle support has allowed my son to continue to play basketball while recovering.
