The Effect of Lace-up Ankle Braces on Injury Rates in High School Basketball Players

Better than taped
Chose because of reviews & nba mention. Timely delivery. Material & construction excellent. Feels like being taped by a professional trainer.

Great ankle brace for the cost
This is my second pair of the 195 ankle brace and I get these each basketball season and they last for all of my practices and games. The fit and feel is the best I've used. They're just a better brace compared to the 199 in general - more supportive.

XSmall ankle braces hard to find
It's hard to find ankle braces this small. This is a great brace and works very well for protection. It's easy for my daughter to strap up on her own.

Highly recommended Protection for Basketball
After I injured my ankle from running in a marathon and then spraining the very same ankle a few more times while playing basketball, I thought it was finally time to throw away my basic compression ankle sleeve and get an ankle brace with more support. I researched many ankle braces but the McDavid 195 had a lot reviews that talked well about its merrits. When I received the product, I was nervous that it would limit my mobility and would feel bulky inside my shoe. I was very surprised to learn that its extremely lightweight (ultralight). I have used it now for about 6 months (for basketball) and I have not injured or twisted my ankle ever since; this brace is truly awesome and has been a god send. It has kept me injury free this year!

I buy a new set every year
I have used this 195 brace for several years now for basketball. I buy a pair every year to make sure that I have the best level of support, but this is a long lasting product that works just as described. It doesn't decrease your mobility at all. Superb brace.

These are awesome ankle braces! My son can wear these in place of getting his ankles taped for basketball. I'm sure they work amazingly well in football as well. They're well worth the money spent to protect your ankles from getting injured.

Like My McDavid Ultralight Ankle Brace
I rolled my left ankle badly during the summer while playing competitive basketball. I gave it 3-4 weeks time to heal but I kept hurting the same repeatedly, so I asked one of my friends if I could try his cheap ankle wrap. I used it a couple of times and I found that it really aggravated my foot after about 10 minutes of use, even while just walking around. So I purchased the McDavid ultralight ankle brace. The name says it all- it IS amazingly lightweight and provides amazingly good support and has saved my ankle more than once so far. The two adjustable straps that go under and around the foot feel thin yet strong enough to prevent a rollover being they're nylon. The brace is easy to put on and the lace-up style provides a custom fit. The brace works best if its applied over a sock. It's a great ankle brace that will fit virtually any type of shoe.

Satisfied with my McDavid Ultralight Ankle Brace
Good ankle brace at a standard price. I bought a pair for basketball protection and I have been very pleased. They're very supportive and come with the adjustable figure eight strapping to lock down the ankle properly. The tongue is comfortable and the grommets don't dig into your skin like with other braces. Recommended.

Figure 8
I have been playing basketball competitively for a few years and have been taping my ankles for extra support. I realized that taping my ankles was very uncomfortable, time consuming and started to put a dent in my wallet. I wanted to put an end to this. I was reading a Sports Illustrated magazine and saw one of my favorite players (Dwayne Wade) wearing McDavid ultralight ankles braces with figure 8 Straps. It was a no brainer, I can adjust the straps whenever or however tight I wanted them and nowhere near as time consuming. So I ordered a pair via Next Day Air. My McDavid ankle braces arrived the next day. Just in time for my play off game. Thanks.
