Best Ankle Braces Ever

Hey all! I had a special request from a friend, so I am finally getting around to posting my much-delayed but ever-important information about ankle support. I have my favorite braces/splints listed below and I discuss why I like them, how to wear them, tips for cushioning, and shoes they work with in the video.



These are my favorite ankle braces, MalleoLoc by Bauerfeind:

Wow, this looks like something I may eventually try if my ankle gets any looser. Thanks for posting your thoughts on this topic. Like you, my ankles roll out and I'm limited to wearing certain types of shoes. I wonder if I should wait till my Morton's Neuroma completely heals before trying this Bauerfiend brace.

Purchased this brace a few months ago based on your recommendation. Felt more assured since the advice came from a fellow EDSer. I'm like this brace, so much better than the dozen OTC ones I've tried.

Removal of the nerve. Surgical removal of the growth may be necessary if other treatments fail to provide pain relief. Although surgery is usually successful, doctors often turn to surgery as a last resort, because the procedure removes both the neuroma and the nerve, which can leave permanent numbness in the affected toes.

I have terrible ankles and I'm always looking for something to help them. I've never tried something like this and I think it may help. Do you know where I can get something like this? I would love to try it! http://www.streetrdrx.com/medical-equipment.html

I had a different type of brace from Bauerfiend and while I LOVED the customer service from them I just didn't like the brace. I'm using the BioSkin TriLok ankle brace now and so far I'm really liking it! It might not be right for my left ankle but I have it for my right one now and it's as sturdy as the ones you like but fit better into my shoes!

Thank you for posting this. I'm going to get one. I've got flat feet and over a few months my feet have changed dramatically for the worst. I have hypermobile ankles and wish I'd tried this year's ago! Thank you for sharing!

Hey, very nice site. I came across this on Google, and I am stoked that I did. I will definitely be coming back here more often. Wish I could add to the conversation and bring a bit more to the table, but am just taking in as much info as I can at the moment. Thanks for sharing.
