Rated 2 out of 5 by VB Mom Daughter didn't like the fit compared to the previous Active Ankle model
It wasn't as comfortable as the lower price Active

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kelly Great brace
I got 2 of these for my daughter who plays volleyball. She really likes them, and from what I see out there, this is top notch. Great product. A little speedy, but worth it

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kylmac Wish I had bought sooner.
My daughter plays club volleyball and came down hard on her ankle a few weeks ago-the doctor said it was sprained but not broken thankfully. There was quite a bit of bruising and swelling so we waited until she was ready to go back to practice to buy these. Had her try on several pairs so she could get the correct fit and stability. She says they really help keep her ankles from rolling so I am hoping this will keep her injuries to a minimum. She has done this before just not as bad-wish I had gotten them sooner to have prevented this injury.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vball Mom Top notch ankle brace
My daughter had rolled her ankles playing volleyball. She was hesitant to move hard laterally for fear of aggravating her weakened joints. We tried these Cramer Volt braces and have been pleasantly surprised. They are not cheap but the swivel at the ball of her ankle has worked great for her. She has not had any additional problems and is confident in her play. These may require you to buy a half size larger shoe. The frame underfoot is comfortable but takes up a little extra room.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ty0808 Great but not as flexible as I'd like
I like this brace however It is not as flexible as I'd like. I can walk but it is noticeable that there is something wrong. I would like to be able to still run but it is not possible.

I love the brace and it helps to minimize lateral movement without restricting forward movement

Rated 5 out of 5 by Elle Best braces I have ever had!!!!
I bought these braces because my ankles pretty badly when I was younger playing different sports, so now they sprain much easier. Over the last 10+ years I have tried dozens of ankle braces and hated every single one of them. Some were too loose, too tight, not enough support, no range of motion, uncomfortable to were...the list goes on. Recently I have taken up hiking and planned a trip where I knew the terrain was pretty rough (rocky, narrow and steep). Last time I hiked it I ended up on crutches for a few months with a bad ankle sprain. My doctor suggest active ankle and I figured I had nothing to lose. So I bought one for each ankle a couple weeks before the trip and wore them around to break them in a bit. They are surprisingly comfortable given the level support and after a few days I hardly noticed they were there. Went for the 2 day hike including climbing 2000+ feet in elevation in less than 2 miles and came home with no pain at all. Not even a little sprain! I have been telling all my friends that it is WELL worth the price and the best purchase I have made in a long time!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Sara Straps too short
I bought this brace for my daughter who has sprained her right ankle many times and needed a good quality brace that she can wear for softball. First of all, you can't put the brace on and then put your shoe on. You have to put the brace in the shoe first and then figure out how to cram your foot into the shoe with the brace in it. You have to twist your ankle to get it into the shoe, a very difficult and painful process. After about 3 tries we managed to get the shoe and brace on her foot, only to discover the velcro straps on the brace weren't long enough to wrap around her ankle. Then we had to pry the shoe back off of her foot. It's also recommended for shoes with removeable insoles which her Asics do not have. Basically your insoles are what holds this brace into the shoe and keeps the hard bottom of it from digging into the bottom of your foot, so even if the brace had fit, it probably wouldn't have worked in her indoor practice shoes. We never tried it in her cleats since the straps were too short. We returned it to the store and found a better quality lace up brace at a medical supply store for less money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Club volleyball player Slightly uncomfortable
I received these for christmas. I have no big complaints except that the bars/beams, or whatever you call them, rub on my foot weird and bothered me. But I decided to try using that cut and stick padding from dr scholls, I cut it to fit the length of the bar that ran down into the shoe. And, bingo it was absolutely perfect they no longer bother my feet and still provide superb protection! I recommend that anyone who gets ankle braces puts some type of padding in them.
