“Excellent, High Quality Product”
This is very light weight but offers superb support. I use this when jogging and am not at all aware of wearing it once it is on. The materials used and general quality of the brace is a very high standard. I cannot recommend this ankle brace highly enough.
On first examination of this product I noticed what appeared to be a tear in the material where it fits under the arch of the foot, I though it was damaged and contacted the supplier who assured me that it is supposed to be there. I was still not convinced as there is no stitching around this tear and so nothing to stop it tearing further, however I have started to wear it and so far so good. The support it gives is very good without being restrictive and has helped stabilise my ankle which is giving me more confidence. I have only been using it for a week so its still early days but have to say so far that I am very pleased.
“Not suitable for fallen arches.”
I got this brace as a lightweight replacement for my usual air cast brace. As, due to an incorrect operation, I have no arch on my left foot and I thought that this would be less obtrusive than my usual brace. After all if it's good enough for Andy Murray, it's good enough for me! Unfortunately, it isn't strong enough to support a foot with no arch. It might, however, be fine for people with a less serious foot injury. It is easy to put on and less noticeable than the air cast foot support, and could be decent support for minor injuries such as foot sprains.
For me though, it's back to the more solid and reliable air cast foot brace, with the inflatable air cells, to support my none existent arch.
Sorry Andy. You're a great tennis player but your brace ain't for me!
Excellent light weight brace. Ideal for raquet sports.
“A60 Ankle Brace”
Since buying the ankle brace for my 16 year old son the rotten weather has led to all his training and football matches cancelled - including his training and match this weekend. I hope he will have the opportunity to try it out soon.
i'm very happy with this product.
/5 for an ankle support/protection brace”
I brought this after a badly sprained ankle playing football. I wore this for 5 weeks after the sprain when i returned to work to help prevent and protect the ankle from over turning and further damage. Felt strange wearing it to begin with but you soon get use to the feeling and even forget your even wearing it at times. Quick and easy to slip it on and off and does protect the ankle for 'light' use like walking, driving etc. I've only given this a good rating for 2 reasons. firstly, the side webbing does begin to wear after a while if it's rubbing agaisn't your foot wear for long periods. Secondly, as mentioned it only protects the ankle for light use and I wouldn't recommend it for protection in sports like football or running as it doesnt fit so well in a boot or running trainer.
After an Achilles' tendon rupture and multiple ankle sprains this ankle brace allows me to exercise without worry.

Having only one working hand this is nice & easy to put on
“Does what it says it will”
Very easy to put on and wear in your normal running shoe. Has given me confidence to run again. Ive had a couple of cross country moments when my ankle wanted to roll but the brace limited the lateral movement and I was able to recover the step without any damage occurring. Only criticism is that you need to wear a high sock to prevent discomfort. Otherwise, I am very happy with it.

My Aircast A60 Ankle Brace is comfortable and very effective.
“Recovering from a Broken Ankle”
I bought this following a trimalleolar ankle fracture, 15 weeks in a cast, and then being allowed to walk with a boot. I found this beneficial in supporting my ankle after all that ( although not recommended by my physio), as I got use to walking again and I felt safe and secure from my ankle rolling or any other mishap. It really helped my confidence. The only problem was how quickly the fabric frayed and eventually got shredded on the sides by the top of my shoes exposing the plastic. It lasted about 3 months; just barely. I felt it should have lasted longer for the price.
The brace is providing brilliant support without restricting movement. I feel so much more confident in playing wearing my support.
“Fantastic ankle support”
Bought the A60 to replace my tattered and slightly disintegrated Mueller lace up support (which did a great job for a good few years). I read reviews for loads of different supports and decided that even though this was about the same price as 2 of the Mueller supports (both of my ankles are kitten like after 25 years of rugby, football and twice weekly five a side for the last 17 years). The extra cost has been well worth the price. I've had no pain or turns in my left ankle since wearing this, which wasn't always the case with the Mueller, even when new. It fits seamlessly into my astro footy boots and the best bit is the fact that there's no laces!!! It's ridiculously easy to put on and is all velcroed up and ready to go in seconds. Highly recommended and will now be getting one for my right ankle too.
“Clever design but tricky with orthotics & not well made.”
Very clever design and easy to wear with normal trainers or lace-ups. I would have liked a bit more padding round my ankle but then that would have made the brace bulkier. I found it fairly easy to get used to the quite hard supports once I found the right position for my feet/ankles, though when I took the brace off I found the plastic had left a bit of a dent on each side of my leg (which is still a bit swollen as I'm recovering from a broken ankle). The dents did go away after a short time, though.
I did not expect the plastic to continue under the arch of the foot and found this a bit awkward as I wear othortics.
Choosing the right size isn't easy if you're a woman with typical UK size 6 feet - I found the medium worked better for me - but NB I take an EE shoe fitting.
I agree with other reviewers that though the design is good, the brace isn't very well made given the price. Some of the stitching came undone after I'd worn it half a dozen times and I had to repair it. I'd have sent it back but can't do without it at the moment.
“Forget Andy Murray, buy one because it works!”
Dave 'Fell' no more
I've been fell running for about 6 months and been over on my ankle twice.
I went over badly on my ankle one week ago and decided that I needed some form of support,
I did some research and the Aircast A60 seemed to be the way to go but another fell runner said it was uncomfortable, but forget that it's not it just takes 10 mins to get used to.
I am a size 11 and reading other reviews I decided to go for the medium 7-11 and must say I agree it fits perfectly, so if you are a size 11 and haven't got a foot like an elephant go for the medium, if you have a wide foot and ankle it may be the large you require.
I have been for a run one week after the bad turn with the brace on and was extremely impressed, I can't fault it.
“Great ankle brace.”
An easy and quick to use ankle brace. I used this 6 weeks after breaking my fibula to enable me to play golf. Felt that the support the brace gave was great.
The parcel has arrived in 2 days, and I am in Rome, Italy!! The aircast ankle brace works perfectly and is very useful and comfortable. I have recommended it already too other Olympic athletes. Thank you so much for your wonderful website. I am a therapist and my son is an Olympic athlete for the Italian fencing team. Giulia Monteforte.
Dose what it says on the tin. Very good product well made supports my ankle very well.
Bought this for my son he is a keen rugby player but turned his ankle playing football I bought him a standard ankle strap but after 20 minutes turned it again. So bought this one for him he has now used it many times and it has helped him gain his confidence back and is back playing with no problems a great product well worth paying the extra for it.
Well, I ordered a pair of aircast A60s. After a slight issue with delivery they arrived. Tried them on at home and the felt very strange. Played badminton in them for the first time last night. Felt a bit robocop like but for the first time in 18 months I finished playing with no ankle pain, and woke up this morning with none either. 10/10 I wish I had bought a pair a couple of years ago.
After wearing the mueller malleoloc braces for around 18 months, they finally give way! A lady on my netball team reccomended the aircast A60 and I was happy to snap them up at half the price of my previous pair! They are much simpler to put on, lighweight and less bulky in my shoe! However, the first few times I wore them my ankle bones were in agony and so tender to touch where the plastic parts held them in place! I was really worried that this would not go away...however I persevered and I am so glad I did! I would not be without them now! After the inital week or so of wearing them (4/5 times) they seemed to ease up and have moulded to the shape of my ankle now which is fab! I feel very secure and do not even have to do them up that tight! I don't even notice them whilst playing!
One thing I would say is that I am not sure sure how long they will last me... I do play on average 4 times a week and after having them only 3 weeks have already noticed some tears in the mesh that holds the plastic sides in! This is not a problem, I just hope they don't get bigger...there isn't much need for the mesh really maybe this material could be improved upon?!
Overall best product I have used to date and would definately buy again!! :)
I have suffered a number of ankle injuries playing netball over the years and have tried lots of different supports. Unfortunately, I have always gone on to injure my ankle again... until now. I bought a brace for each ankle and they have been excellent. Although i'm a size 7 I bought a small as my ankles are quite thin. They are quick and easy to put on and provide fantastic support whilst playing netball and tennis. Would thoroughly recommend.
