This ankle support does the job as stated. I use it to help control ankle swelling and the pain from arthritis in my feet and it also helps with foot cramping I get at night, in bed.

I had some ankle swelling with a dull ache, so I tried the charcoal ankle support & in a few days, the swelling had decreased & the pain was gone. I've used it a few times since with the same success. Its a tight fit, but you do get used to it, & aren't aware of it after a time.

I find this support to be very comfortable and easy to wear. Becomes a little tight sometimes but I can live with that. Thinking about a second one.

I purchased the product for light support following an ankle sprain. The size seems right, but the support's uncomfortable to wear--the thicker material around the heel opening binds, chafes, and creates painful pressure in the instep. Disappointing.

I broke my ankle in March, literally in pieces. When I tried the charcoal ankle brace on for the first time, it was bliss! No more pain just a feeling of gentle warmth and support. This is my second order since wore the first one out and I am buying two braces. I found it useful to have a spare when it's time to wash one. I plan to recommend them to my orthopedic surgeon-they are that good!

After having my knee replaced I developed pain in my ankle secondary to the gait changes resulting from the proper realignment of my knee. I wore the ankle support for 1 week all the time when walking. Pain is resolved. I plan a 2-week trip to UK in a few weeks will be taking it along just in case. Effective, fits into shoes without binding. Follow sizing guide for best fit. Medium was good and I am not tiny.

My first pair were perfect--the second pair I ordered the same size and they are a tiny bit tight. I have been wearing one old and one newer keeping the newer one on my left leg--it is a tiny bit thinner than my right. My foot turns inward and this helps.

the heel binding is thick under the heel and the arch of the foot, cutting uncomfortably into the foot.

It does support, but it does not seem to do any more than any other elastic ankle support.

Michael prefers wearing this support rather than the ace support because it's a comfortable support.

Love the brace. It has really helped with the pain in my ankle.

I have tender skin particularly in the arch area and use orthodics. I was worried about the binding around the heel cut out. I have to be careful that it isn't curled up but it just took some getting used to in order to avoid a possible blister. It is helping amazingly with the swelling, and resulting discomfort. This isn't the worst season for my ankle, but I have great hopes. So far, much better than others I have tried.

I bought two of the them for a friend who broke one ankle and severely bruised the other foot from a 20 foot fall. He said he felt something healing from them as well as supportive.

Feels great when I play tennis!

The ankle support has been an amazing relief to my arthritis in addition to general support for my ankle. It is comfortable and I am able to wear it throughout the night.

I purchased the ankle support for my high school son who plays football and needs extra support due to an ankle sprain last year. This wrap helps keep him in the game. Washes nicely, too.

I bought this brace anticipating its need because of a big trip my husband and I were taking to Maine. We planned on hiking in the mountains of Acadia National Park so I bought the ankle brace and the knee brace, just in case. I have some arthritis in my knees and a weak right ankle.
Turns out that I didn't need either during the trip. However, ironically, the morning of the day I returned to work, I tripped, taking a bad fall on the cement walk outside of my house. I'd turned my ankle and bashed my knee. After applying ice for the first 24 hours, I tried both the ankle and the knee brace and I was shocked to find that within a day, the swelling looked like it had subsided considerably. Within 2 days, I was able to walk almost normally on the ankle. I really was surprised, but then again, I've been so satisfied with everything I've bought through the Isabella catalog it just stands to reason that it really works!
