Having had a laxity in my ankle due to old injury that meant i rolled my ankle often during sport, the nature of extra strapping (compared to most other ankle straps) really stabilises the ankle and gives me confidence to play sport without the fear of pain. It is slightly tight, as needs to be however my ankle size sits inbetween 2 sizes.... I will be buying the bigger size also so i can wear outside of matches / when training.
A really great ankle support. The extra strapping is excellent for holding in an ice pack - probably not part of the original design but works brilliantly!
