As worn by Tennis star Andrew Murray. Our most lightweight, minimal bulk sports ankle brace. Provides a winning combination of effective ankle support and protection. The Aircast A60 Ankle Brace is less bulky than its sister product the Aircast AirSport Ankle Brace.
Based on UK men's shoe size.
Patent pending design incorporates a pair of sleek stabilisers located on either side of the ankle. These stabilisers are moulded at a 60 degree angle to help guard against a sprained ankle and prevent ankle rollover.
Manufactured from Breath-O-Prene® material. The A60 ensures that the wearer stays comfortably cool and dry, while the light-weight design easily fits in athletic footwear without creating additional bulk.
The Aircast A60 is applied and adjusted with a single Velcro strap that securely holds it in place, replacing time-consuming lacing.

My Aircast A60 Ankle Brace is comfortable and very effective.
Reviewed by Anonymous on 12 May 2013
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The ankle brace was promptly dispatched, the instructions clear but would have wanted more guidance on how often it can be worn, for how long and with what footwear it was easy to fit and comfortable. This brace was the only one my podiatrist would advise me to use.

Used this after a broken ankle to help support me going back to playing netball. I am very pleased and considering buying another to support the other ankle. Wish I'd considered using it before the injury. I think this is more useful for sports that stop you rolling over on your ankle. I was also impressed with the delivery. It arrived very quickly.

I initially bought this to support an ankle I had badly sprained playing tennis and wore it continuously during the healing process and subsequently when I returned to the tennis court. The light design made it extremely comfortable. But I have subsequently used it to support my damaged ankle while windsurfing last summer when water starting in high winds carried a great risk of repeat injury. Bit worn now but a brilliant product all the same and still going strong on the tennis court.

Returning to 5 a side after a bad sprain I was very cautious - specialist recommended one of these 'just in case' - cannot imagine playing without it now - tried the Airsport which was v. comfortable but hard to fit into any sports shoes and very obvious. A60 feels less comfortable (because of a reduced level of padding) to start with but as soon as you are playing you forget it. I have been taking knocks without problems that would have sent me hobbling off without it!

I got this as support for recovery after a serious ankle injury - as a replacement for a mueller brace that I had liked, but thought was a little difficult to fit into my shoe.
I found it ok to wear at first, good fit, fits well into running shoe and is light. But during running it cuts into the inside of the ankle (which is not cushioned all the way down so you will have the edge of the plastic brace cutting into the ankle). Also the plastic braces sit loosely within their webbing so will shift around while running, again creating friction and discomfort.
I thought at first it was a matter of getting used to the brace and left it on for too long - ended up with quite a painful ankle - it got better immediately after taking it off, but I felt it set recovery back by about 3 weeks as I needed to rest the ankle after this trial (note: this was more than 8 weeks after the initial injury, so there is no swelling anymore or alike - also I had taken the recommended steps for early rehab before starting to run again - and I had done successful runs before that...). Also: the size is accurate, which is a shame as it is well made overall and nice and thin.
This might be a good brace if you just want reassurance and have no pre-existing problems -- and possibly it is more suited for playing sports than fell running - so I appreciate others really like it - but I won't wear this again! Back to the Mueller.

Sprained my ankle quite badly whilst training for first triathlon and it didn't get better after a couple of weeks rest so bought this brace and it's been fantastic. Ankle still not fully better but I can run in this brace with no pain at all. I love it. Would highly recommend to anyone who may have a weak-feeling ankle.

Brilliant product - gives you fantastic support so that you can run without worries. I now run 40 miles plus per week knowing that I cannot go over with this total support. Fits in shoe perfectly but sometimes you may need a thicker sock underneath to stop the rubbing when doing long distance. The only downside is the price - as the product deteriorates with lots of wear - but overall a great product.

Having bought it to support a very weak ankle whilst walking in rough or unstable countryside I have only used it for a total distance so far of about 30 miles. It has supported me well and much to my surprise has not rubbed blisters within my boots. The real test will be in a few weeks time when used for the next 50 miles of the Coast to Coast walk over 4 days.
It is easy to fit and the side supports appear strong.
