I was looking for ankle brace the would give the most lateral support.
I've injured both my ankles while playing ultimate Frisbee. I love the game and will continue playing no matter what.
So wearing support is now a must for me otherwise I easily roll my ankle on a sharp turn or a stop during the game.
So again, my intent is to use ankle support for already injured ankle while playing active sports.
Brace that only helps "prevent" injury is useless, I'm already injured.
For Ultimate Frisbee I need "ultimate" ankle support.
So here is my list.
1. Best support and price
#1 Laced Ankle Brace With Stabilizing Strap For Flexible Support. Breathable Neoprene Braces Made By Product Stop. (Large)
Plastic on both sides makes all the difference. I can tighten it with the straps as tight as I want. Foot stays flexible. I've played Frisbee at full strength and didn't have any pain from my injured right ankle.
2. Best support as well, but expensive
Zamst A2-DX Left Ankle Brace, Black, Large
When I read in one of negative reviews for this product that it is too complicated to put on, that was a selling point for me.
Brace that is easy to put on cannot give good support. A good brace would mold into your foot, it shouldn't be easy to put it on.
So I got it, played at full speed and it was most of the time very safe.
The only thing I didn't like is that material of the boot and the straps can stretch a little, so it make it quite flexible, but would let the ankle roll in some really extreme twist. I would sacrifice some of flexibility for a guarantee that it wouldn't let the ankle roll no matter what.
3. These 3 braces have the same design, good basic support, but not good for ultimate game
ASO Ankle Stabilizer, Black, X-Large
Best price, design and durability
McDavid 195 Deluxe Ankle Brace with Strap (Black, Large)
More expensive than ASO, nicer look, good durability, but I don't like design of the straps (crossing straps should start from the back of the foot)
Shock Doctor Ultra Wrap Lace Ankle Support (Black, Large,9-9.5)
Price is OK, but not very durable. 7-10 games destroyed it quickly.
It will definitely add some width to your foot so be sure your shoes can handle that or it's going to be uncomfortable for you.
I can play at a high level (I play on a semi-pro team, we each get 3k per season to play, whoohoo!). I play upfront and I can still do my all my moves that I used to in my 20s with this on (haha, of course I can't really do that I just think I can).
