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.

Good compromise for mobility and support!

I damaged ankle ligaments and tore soleus muscle and have been on the road to recovery for some weeks. After using rigid sports tape (uncomfortable and time-consuming) a slip-on support was needed. I've used this ankle support for a month or more now on numerous occasions. It doesn't feel that supportive standing still, but when walking / running it really proves to be a great compromise between mobility and support. Highly recommended to stabilize injured ankle during rehab.

Great Ankle Support during Tennis and Walking

I wear this when I play tennis and do my powerwalks. I have one for each ankle. Great support and recovery after.

Due to these little beauties, I don't feel the soreness I used to during the end of a match and after a match. Or after a powerwalk.
