Ankle Brace Sleeves
Sleeves are usually the least stable when it comes to ankle support; however, they are useful to use with daily use or when playing sports or exercising for mild ankle pain. Ankle brace sleeves are generally made out of a multidirectional elastic material that will compress and support the ankle.
Stirrup ankle braces are perfect for customisation and achieve results similar to that achieved with surgery. This ankle brace is adjustable, reduces swelling and provides the support and protection your ankle needs to recover. They are not, however, ideal for use when playing sports.
Lace-up ankle braces are similar to a shoelace design and provide maximum support. The laces allow you to customise the tightness according to your requirements and the rigid materials mean they are stable. Even though they are rigid, these braces are quite flexible compared to a lot of ankle braces.
