This brace looks like it's made up of fabric...how does it provide support? Is it better support than if I taped my ankle?
Question by: Alison on Mar 19, 2010, 3:27 PM
The Aircast A60 is made of a fabric called Breath-O-Prene which is designed to keep your foot cool and dry. It provides support with the help of a stabilizer located on either side of the ankle (the gray strap in the photo), it is molded at a 60 degree angle to help protect against ankle sprains and rollovers.

Is it light weight and can it be worn in any shoe without causing bulk? also I have found that shoe size is hard to find a fit by due to having larger calves, so If I wear a 7.5 womens shoe what size would you recommend.
Question by: SG on Mar 25, 2010, 6:59 AM
The Aircast A60 is light weight and can be worn in most shoes without an issue. As with all ankle braces there is some bulk added that will require you to loosen the the shoe laces a bit. That is something you'd have to with almost any fairly supportive ankle brace like the A60. For your size shoe you would need a Small. You can see the size chart in the size chart tab on this page.

Based on what I read, I have a grade 1 ankle sprain from an inversion that happened around Thanksgiving 2009. I use a Mueller brace (no plastic, just the lace-up with cross-straps) now. I’m still having some issues and wonder if one of these aircast A60’s or the airsport might be better. The sport is tennis. Trying to take it easy but the ankle is just not completely back.

What is your recommendation of a brace for tennis? It seems like what causes the pain is more of a twisting motion to the left off my right foot.

The Aircast A60 is an excellent Ankle Brace for Tennis and other court sports. In fact, Tennis Pro Andy Murray wears the Aircast A60 Ankle Brace. It fits into a tennis shoe nicely and will give you the stability and protection you need. The support system is far stronger than what you have with the you lace up Mueller Ankle Brace.

I have injured my right ankle numerous times hiking due to my weak ankle rolling out and causing injury. Will the Aircast A60 give me the needed support while hiking on the trails irregular surfaces?

The Aircast A60 is a great brace to wear while hiking. The 60 degree molded supports help provide ligament support and help prevent ankle rollovers while active. It is light breathable fabric and low profile design fits easily and comfortably inside any athletic shoe.

What are the side stabilizers made of on the Aircast A60 Ankle Brace?

I'm recovering from a serious sprain and (optimistically) hoping to go hiking in three weeks. I have excellent boots but obviously need something to support and protect the ankle on the trail.
Question by: BF on Jun 10, 2010, 11:07 AM
The supports on the Aircast A60 are made up of a rigid yet flexible plastic material that is molded to a 60 degree angle. This ankle brace is ideal for wearing with your hiking boots. It will give you the support and stability while walking on the uneven terrain.

I play soccer, is the Aircast A60 recommended for soccer use? Will it interfere with my shin guards? I want something low profile. Are these the best support for both my ankles during play? Thanks.
Question by: Andres Ramirez on Jun 30, 2010, 8:30 PM
Yes, The Aircast A60 Ankle Support is great for soccer. The low profile design will not interfere with your gear and the molded 60deg support will protect your ankle from injury.

Visually this item looks significantly lees bulky than the Airsport Ankle Brace. Is that the case?
Question by: L&J on Jul 1, 2010, 11:10 AM
Yes, the A60 is made up of a thin breathable material and has a 60deg molded plate that contours to the leg for less bulk and protects the ankle from rolling, and preventing injury.

Are the side supports for the A60 brace as rigid as for the Airsport brace?
Question by: SRO on Dec 5, 2010, 10:30 AM
The A60 stays are more flexible than the airsport, as the A60 is designed to be used without a preexisting injury.

I am an obese female with larger than average ankle and calf and am prone to at least moderate swelling on a daily basis. I am three months post severe ankle sprain ( and tibial plateau fracture). The air splint my orthopod gave me is molded for ankle curves I don't have and cuts into my foot and ankle, adding to my pain. I've just started full weight bearing and find I am still in need of moderate support. This brace is advertised as preventative. But, will it serve as support for a recovering sprain as well? Also, will it stretch to comfortably fit a larger ankle and lower leg?
Question by: Nancy on Dec 21, 2010, 2:37 PM
The A60 is intended for prophylactic or light support. It would not be appropriate for your stage of healing.
More appropriate braces include the Air-Stirrup Universe, Velocity, or RocketSoc ankle braces.

I'm an ultra runner and am looking for a good right side ankle support....will the A60 suffice for long distance running? im a size 11.5-12 running shoe, what size would you recommend?
Question by: Jeremy on Feb 28, 2011, 5:21 PM
The A60 ankle support will be a good choice for lateral ankle support during running. With your size of foot, I would suggest getting the large size.
