This cool, light weight ankle stabilizer combines the compression and comfort of a soft ankle brace with the rigid stability of an ankle stirrup. A plastic exoskeleton is formed directly onto the soft breathable fabric, forming a network of strategically placed support zones. The fully adjustable strapping system provides optimum medial-lateral control and will not stretch during exercise. This is one of the most widely used ankle bracing systems today because of its proven performance, comfort and durability. It can be worn after an acute ankle sprain or as a preventative product to protect against repeat ankle sprains during athletic activities.
