Fits fine in climbing shoes

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I'm really happy with this brace. The neoprene sleeve was difficult to get on at first, but just took some getting used to / stretching out.

I read the reviews before buying and was concerned about fitting it in a climbing shoe (I only bought it to climb in: not for hiking or running). I have no problem fitting it under my gym climbing shoes at all, but I do size up and wear socks when in the gym.

Zero chance of fitting it under my aggressive shoes but why would you want it to? I can't get on anything hard enough to require a technical shoe with a sprained ankle.

No swelling or pain when using the brace. I've tried climbing without it a couple times but had swelling/aching in my ankle afterward.

I wear a size 7 womens street shoe, size 7.5 optimus prime velcros in the gym (fits), size 6.5 hornets outside (doesn't fit) and a size small brace.

I'd definitely recommend it if you have a weak ankle and some roomy shoes. Hope that helps!

Not bad, not great

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

This is actually a pretty good brace for support during hikes and getting around, but wouldn't recommend if you're looking to use it while running, climbing, etc. I'm a men's size 10 and went with a Medium which feels about right. Good product, not awesome.

Very supportive, but poorly sized

    I needed some extra support while my ankle heals so I gave these a try. While the design and support is great, the sizing feels a little off. I got a small since I usually wear small everything (plus the size chart on the packaging said I'm a Small). I slipped my foot in and it felt a little too tight around the middle of my foot. I wrapped the bungee material around my ankle like I was supposed to and my ankle felt great until it started to fall asleep. I tried loosening it as much as possible which sort of helped. It eventually started feeling like it was bruising where my Achilles Tendon connects to the back of the foot. At that point I realized these won't work for me and I'll have to stick with an ACE bandage for now. There was also some uncomfortable pressure points on the bottom of the feet. Maybe a Medium would fit my small and narrow foot better, but because of how thick the material is under the foot, I'll just keep looking for something else.

    Very supportive, good fit

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I got a large brace - (My shoe size is men's 11.5) - and it fits wonderfully and is very supportive.

    The brace is made out of a standard neoprene-ish athletic brace, but has two elastic bands. The elastic bands are covered in velcro, with the attaching surface at the ends. This allows you to wrap it in multiple configurations to get the most support possible.

    Another reviewer has said that it is bulky. Yes, I could see this beeing bulky in a climbing shoe. In a hiking boot, it is perfect. This is definitely going in with the backpacking gear.
