An excellent piece. I have been using this for the past two months. It helps in preventing ankle twist.
My badly sprained and swollen ankle quickly recovered when I used this splint. I have a weak ankle from an old injury and this product provided great support and prevented further injury, A little too bulky as a support for on-going use after recovery but excellent and well worth the money for a quick initial recovery.
Can be used with shoe also. Just loosen your shoelace, insert your leg and then tighten the shoelace. I would recommend wearing a sock, before putting this on. I used it extensively for one month before I had my surgery. I had three ligament tears on my left ankle and hence couldn't walk properly. This helped a lot.
