The Donjoy Velocity Ankle Brace provides extra support to the ankle joint and helps prevent ankle sprains. The brace is ideal for preventing a future ankle injury, as well as, for treating a current injury. The Velocity ankle brace is available in three styles for injury protection: a stand-alone shell (LS version), or with speed wrap softgoods (Velocity ES and MS styles) for compression and additional support. The R3 rapid ratchet closure system provides easy fitting and a heat moldable shell design for providing a more customized fit. The low-profile, semi-rigid shell is designed to fit inside cleats, as well, as other types of athletic shoes with minimal bulk. The Donjoy Velocity is lightweight and prevents abnormal amounts of inversion, eversion, and rotation motions while allowing natural flexion of your foot up and down inside your shoe - perfect for both treatment and prevention of ankle sprains. This brace is a popular model especially for athletes playing contact sports such as football, rugby, field hockey, and soccer.

Velocity Ankle Brace Models - Our Take:
- Donjoy Velocity LS Ankle Brace: The LS is the lightest model and also the least popular. This is really the most scaled back model, and while it does provide a semi rigid shell and the unique rachet closure system up on top, you're paying for the ability to mold the shell if necessary to fit your foot and ankle anatomy. Unless you have a super narrow, bony foot, and therefore might benefit from using a hair dryer to heat it up and automold it to your ankle, we're not sure you're getting any more protection than what is already available from other less expensive models from other brands.
- Donjoy Velocity MS Ankle Brace: The MS model provides a higher level of support compared to typical hinged designs from competitors because of the addition of the ankle softgood being added to the brace. The softgood is easy to apply and has a lace up style to help lock the brace in around your ankle and maintain a protected "neutral" position. Coupled with the rachet closure up top and the ability to automold the brace to your individual anatomy, this is a brace that is ideally suited for athletes who have sprained their ankles in the past, or for an athlete that wants to play contact sports with a higher level of support without the cost associated with taping constantly.
- Donjoy Velocity ES Ankle Brace: The ES is the most popular version of the Velocity and really is the reason to get the Velocity. Because the brace is often dispensed upon prescription from a doctor, it carries a higher price tag, but the benefits greatly outweigh the cost in our opinion. This model comes with the full length forefoot/ankle softgood that laces up to provide the greatest amount of control over both forefoot and ankle motion. Even with the beefed up soft goods it still fits inside basketball shoes and football cleats easily. With a semi-rigid shell design that's heat moldable, this product provides some of the best protection available today in the hinged ankle brace arena. In our opinion, this is the Velocity model to get to protect your ankles.
