Purchased left and right foot ankle supports for my son who is a high performance taekwondo athlete. His ankles are known to roll from time to time and needed them so I didn't have to strap his ankles for injury prevention. They are great, but after wearing them a few times he has noticed that one strap is longer than the other and he has to pull it tighter to make it fit, which in turn hurts the side of his foot a bit. He needed them to take them to Canada to train for a competition. We will have to return the shorter one when he returns. He said the one that fits is great. They are size Small, left and right foot.
The Sports Ankle Support provides stability to the ankle joint during intense activity, protecting against sprains and lateral twists.
The Sports Ankle Support features a breathable knitted fabric, consisting of ventilation zones, which allows for heat and sweat dissipation during exercise. Gradient compression is also engineered into the fabric to support muscle activity and assist with blood flow to the ankle joint, helping to reduce any swelling.
Similar to the MalleoTrain S ankle brace, the adjustable strap system featured in the Sports Ankle Support minimises the risk of sprains under increased stress. Ideal for athletes and individuals engaging in jumping activity and sports with start-stop situations.
We recommend using the MalleoTrain S for everyday use, and the Sports Ankle Support during sport.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is true medical-grade compression?
Gradient compression means the compression is strongest farthest away from the center of the body/heart and slowly loosens as it goes closer to the center of the body.
Medical-grade compression levels are in the “sweet spot” for improving circulation and removing lactic-acid and other fluid build up. Unlike most other 'active wear' and retail compression available in Australia (that are not gradient and provide much lower grade compression), Bauerfeind compression is true medical grade.
What’s the difference between the Performance and Recovery lines?
Sports Supports are ideal for shorter bursts of intense activity (like a workout or a basketball game), whereas Medical Supports are softer and more comfortable for all-day wear.
Sports braces and supports are great for injury prevention, but if you already have an injury you're trying to recover from, we’d recommend going with a Recovery brace or support.
What is proprioception?
Succeeding at your sport relies on your coordination and confidence, and gaining awareness of your body’s movements is essential to improving performance and preventing an injury.
Very innovative product
Had an ankle injury for 10 years, best one i have worn without side stirrups.
In earlier days this wouldnt have been enough support, an option with sode stirrups would be a great upgrade for added support while still remaining comfortable
Hi Kate, Thanks for the review! We do have an option with lateral support that's removable, the MalleoLoc L3 - https://www.bauerfeind.com.au/products/malleoloc-l3?variant=23926620979264
