Putting on the Ultra Zoom
Step 1 – Tighten the top strap. If the top strap isn't long enough, X-Long Straps are available for purchase from Ultra Ankle.
Step 2 – Secure the bottom straps, making sure both ends adhere to the pad and do not overlap each other. Depending on your foot size, you can use either the top or bottom slots.

Fitting in Your Shoe
You must significantly loosen your laces down to the bottom of the tongue before putting your shoe on the first time.
In most cases if you loosen your laces and are still having trouble, the athletic trainers at Ultra Ankle are able to resolve most fitting issues.
The brace will work with your shoe to provide support. Do not judge the fit, feel, or support of the brace without having your shoe on first.
Like a new pair of shoes, The Ultra Zoom may require a 2-3 hour break-in period to achieve maximum comfort.
On the white tab inside the upper strap, mark your braces RIGHT and LEFT with a permanent marker. As you break them in they will become foot specific.

Pros: comfortable; easy to adjust; moderate support; lightweight
Cons: probably not the best option for acute injuries (in my opinion); would not be as effective for high ankle sprains, in my opinion.
Recommended. This is a nice low-profile brace that provides a reasonable amount of support. It may not provide the support of a taller hinged brace (ex. - Donjoy Velocity) but is more supportive than other low-profile braces (ex. - Donjoy Pod)
The only issue we have had is they started squeaking when she walked. :) I took a little dab of lubricant and it resolved that issue. The squeaking wasn't loud but it was an easy fix so we went ahead and fixed it. Have been using these for about 9 months now.
Have had these for 3 years now playing Volleyball pretty much all year around with Club, USAV, and School ball and they are still going strong. I did buy a 3rd one last year to have on hand in the event one of them broke during a tournament so we wouldn't have to worry about her while we waited on us ordering one but so far we haven't needed it. She plays Middle and on the Pin and she had come down on peoples feet who come under the net and has yet to have an injury. She come down hard on the side of a foot once and she said she was worried but she wasn't hurt and she even admitted if she didn't have an ankle brace on she thinks she would have broken her ankle. Well worth it..
Update 3: I tried the Zamst 2 brace because of the very high rating reviews, but I felt it wasn't good compared to the Ultra Zoom. Ultra Zoom has better support, easier on/off applying and has great pivot support. Zamst was lose, didn't provide as good as support and was a big hassle to put on properly. I ended up returning the Zamst and buying a second Ultra Zoom for my left ankle.
Update 2: So far in about 5 months of continuous basketball at ~290 pounds, it has definitely helped with everything I needed. In fact, I may order another one for my good ankle (left) which just yesterday I rolled while playing. Great! (sarcasm)
Update: So far in about 2 months there have been many times this brace has saved me from an injury. If wearing correctly, you will literally feel when it stops a rolled ankle, and you will thank the people who made this. The brace is holding up extremely well too. There is slight squeaking from sweat/water, but it's unnoticeable if you are playing sports. Do not over tighten, as it will put your foot asleep. Remember, you are also tying your shoes, so keep the foot brace a little lose. That's my advice.
I am wearing this brace because I rolled my ankle playing basketball and my specialist suggested getting a typical wooden/metal stirrup brace for the healing process. I of course didn't want to go down that route because that's outdated medical technology. So I browsed Amazon and came across this performance/hybrid brace that you can wear in daily or sport conditions. I bought it immediately.
When I received the package, it was kind of packed like it was just thrown in the box and taped up. The paper work was old, crinkled, and faded, although the brace was in perfect condition.
The brace can be very uncomfortable at first, be sure you wear a high sock for added comfort. Remember, I am putting this brace on as my foot is still swollen from my injury, so my pain can be self caused. But, the brace ends up molding quite well and becoming unnoticeable at times while walking and being active.
The plastic is great quality, the material they use for everything else is very well made, the straps are perfectly sturdy for even a big guy like myself. The bottom strap has actually two straps, one on each side, which is genius. Because it allows you to get a even distribution of tension focused on the middle of your foot. However, and this is where I took a star off, the top strap just goes left to right. Why?! This would be the perfect brace if the straps on top (near ankle/shin) were just like the foot straps. Since the top strap only goes from left to right, it makes the brace *slightly* tighter on the left side of your foot, which is noticeable. This not only brings worries of unbalanced support for your right side of your right ankle (in my case), but I am kind of worried about my knee.
I am going to test this out much more as I get healed up and ready to play/be active again after my injury. So I will update with more impressions later on in the month.
**WARNING** Wear high socks with these, as they say on the warning label/box when you get them. If you don't, the bottom part of the protection will rub against your Achilles tendon. No big deal, but it's a must or it will be extremely uncomfortable.

Only one suggestion is to cut the plastic around the heal down a bit as it gets really difficult to get your shoes on and off with the plastic surrounding your heal. I have cut the plastic but still get all the support I need with a more comfortable time taking my shoes on and off! Still a 5 start product though!
I broke and severely sprained my ankle about 11 weeks ago, and was looking for a brace to transition from my air cast to no support. This brace was not for me. Firstly, it doesn’t fit into any footwear at all for the winter... good luck getting that thing into and out of a boot. But secondly, and most importantly, it was not comfortable at all and increased my pain levels substantially (even after it was broken in, since it requires a break in period).
I’m returning it and buying a different one
its bulk when you wear it.
I use it for softball and works with out any further worry about my ankle.
