Adjustable strap for improved ligament stabilization
The figure eight strapping system provides the same stability as athletic taping, but is much simpler to apply, gentle on the skin, breathable and easily fits into a shoe. In addition, the strap maintains its stability during rigorous activities, unlike tape.
3D Air knit technology for maximum breathability and comfort
The Air Knit is lightweight, comfortable, moisture-wicking and washable. It allows maximum freedom of movement combined with maximum ankle stabilization.
Compression for optimal athletic performance
The Air Knit provides medical standard compression to boost circulation and reduce damaging muscle vibrations. Joint, tendon and ligament loads are reduced.
Medical standard compression not only boosts circulation, but also provides positive sensorimotor feedback. This enhanced feedback can translate to improved confidence and reduced injury rates.
I run about 5 days a week in my distance and Crossfit-style training. I started to get pain in my right ankle and was looking for a high quality sleeve/support. This support did the trick. It completely removed my ankle pain after my first run with it, and I have since then used it for all my running activities. It has yet to show signs of wear even after a month of heavy use--a true testament to its German engineering.

Ankle support is amazing, used it for a week straight
This ankle support is amazing. I have used it for a week straight everyday all day and because of the material and how it is manufactured it had no smell at all. I wish these would have been around back in the late 90's when I was playing sports because it feels like you have been taped up by a trainer. Highly recommend well made quality product.

After I had slipped and sprained my ankle, I really needed something that would help me recover fast. Was tempted to buy one of those cheapy ones after I seen the price and was going to shy away, but something told me to just splurge and get it. Very nice product. The material and the straps just seem so nice and more sturdy and durable than the store ones. At first because my ankle was swollen, i thought the medium was the wrong size. But literally after a couple of hours, I was able to walk to the bathroom. I have read to not wear it to bed, or more than 5 hours straight, just to keep the circulation going. Overall excellent product.
