Excellent product - for running too.
on 11 February 2014
I bought this as I sprained my ankle very badly a while back and it was so weak that I keet going over on it and it never got a chance to heal properly. Not great when training for a marathon!
I bought the thermoskin after reading a silly amount of product reviews for this and similar items and am glad I chose the one did.
It goes on easliy, the whole thing is elasticated - your foot slips through the bottom part then the top strap can be pulled as tight around your anke as you like (the velcro attatches to anywhere you want).
I havent experienced any problens with seams rubbing (you have to ensure you wear it with the seams and label on the outside - the foot part looks a bit inside out when you have it on)
I have worn this for work all day, every day under shoes with no problems. It's also great when running - it fits in a trainer with sock with no problem. The only minor issue I had was that it slightly affects my running gait due to the slight lack of foot flexibility (this would almost certainly be the same with any ankle brace however - it's just the nature of the beast) I've found if I wear it a little looser for running this helps a lot. The support does gives me confidence in my running again as before I had it was so paranoid that every step was going to lead me to another sprain!
I haven't machine washed it but the care label says it's OK at 30degrees - I just hand wash it when I'm in the shower and bung it on the radiator to dry overnight - simples! Definitely recommended and I shall be buying another for when the other one is drying.
For ref: I am a ladies shoe size 7 - it fits perfectly
Oh, and quick delivery too!
