The robust, elasticised, ribbed fabric provides the Ankle Brace’s supportive function and, above the ankle, an adjustable elastic strap is incorporated with Velcro attachments at each end. The band (which is removable, if necessary) allows adjustability, which is practical feature, especially when an injury has caused localised swelling (if the swelling decreases, the strap allows tightening of the garment accordingly).
Because the Ankle Brace is made from a material that is thicker than socks, so takes up a little extra space in the wearer’s shoes and may, also, mean that, for some users, the edges may become less comfortable during longer periods of use. If you are experiencing problems with your heel, then we would suggest Back on Track® Socks or Shoe Insoles, because the Ankle Brace has an opening in that area.
