During a socially volleyball session, I landed on an opponents foot when they crossed their side of the court resulting in me rolling my left ankle.
I really like this ankle support for wearing at home as the ankle pain is still present.
However wearing this with my shoes during volleyball training and in a game is not so good. The bulkiness is a little uncomfortable and the strap doesn't give the lateral support I prefer.
Recently going back to rigid tapping my ankle I must admit that my ankle feels more supported when tapped correctly compared to the ankle support.
Note the Velcro that the strap uses to hold itself will cause some minor wear on the ankle support sock. You can see the fraying of the fabric in the photo.
We are pleased that you have found comfort with the MalleoTrain S Ankle Support in your recovery off of the Volleyball court. It is therefore a shame you have not felt the same comfort whilst playing! The 'bulkiness' you're experiencing is not commonly felt with this product so we want to help you out here. To ease this, we would recommend the MalleoTrain Ankle Support. This product does not have strapping (something we feel may be attributing to your discomfort), and would provide a similar level of support.
We want to make sure that you can feel more freedom whilst enjoying fitness, if you have any questions or need further support please do not hesitate to call us on 1300 668 466 or leave us a message on our live chat.
