I bought the medium, I have size 8.5 in women's. I have large calves and was afraid that they would not it. But they are perfect they are very soft and don't pinch the toes. Even without putting the straps on they help relieve pain associated to my Achilles tendinitis. When I put the straps on it helps my ankles and relieves the tension, I feel like I could do weight lifting again by wearing these. My main like for them is that they are not scratchy and it does not leave an intense crease in your skin and it does not cut off blood flow, and the coloration looks cool. So they are "stylish" for people with orthodontic problems. I would definitely recommend getting them.
I love these ankle braces. They are very simple to put on and provided just the right amount of support to help my sprained ankle heal. I wore one while I washed the other. And I love the lime green color!
These have been such a huge help to me, I have sprained my ankles on so many occasions in the past and I often wake up and have a hard time walking especially on cold or rainy mornings, these help stablize and support my ankles and I feel no pain while wearing them, I also put them on if I know I am going to be doing alot of walking on a particular day, my only issue is is that after a few hours they do start to feel restrictive like they are starting to cut off circulation and I need to take them off. But I think that is just general swelling due to my ankle problems and not the braces themselves.
This brace helped me a lot for my ligaments to recover and heal. I have tried several different types, but they restricted the movement of my foot to much. I needed something that I could adjust how tight it needed to be for the degree of foot motion.
