Breathable, Adjustable Neoprene Ankle Support Review

An old high school injury in which I broke my ankle has followed me through life.  Thanks to that break, I easily sprain or strain my ankle and it seems about once a year I am hobbling about because of it.  My stand by support is the original elastic ankle sock type support.  While it helps, I often grow tired of it quickly because the heel band cuts into my foot leaving pressure marks and pain.  So, when I got the chance to try a new ankle support out, I took it.

Aegend is the maker of this new support.  Their product comes packaged in a neat little cardboard box, nothing fancy.
Inside that box is the support, wrapped in plastic, and a customer support card.
The support itself is black and made of neoprene.  There are three main straps in addition to the heel hole and the body of the support.
Putting this ankle support on is very easy and can be done quickly.  Step one: insert heel into hole and wrap the elastic band around your foot.
Step two: wrap the leg strap across the front of the leg
Step three, criss-cross the two remaining straps to create a support system across the front of the ankle.
The straps all attach with a very strong Velcro.  Once attached, the support sits comfortably on the foot and leg.
Having recently injured my ankle, I have been using my old support, but gave this new one a try for the day.  I laughed when I went to bed late that night, because I had completely forgotten I was still wearing it.  I had no pressure marks or pain from the heel area, no discomfort or sweating from the body of the support, and it was so comfortable to walk in.  There is plenty of flex in this support, lots of room for movement as it is not binding or restricting.  The neoprene is breathable, and even with a sock underneath, I did not experience sweating.  The support fits inside of my shoe easily enough as well.

I am never going back to my old ankle support now that I have this one.  It is so much better!
