ZENSAH® ANKLE SUPPORT :: Zensah® Ankle Support is the first ankle support to provide pin-point compression that stabilizes your ankle to support existing injuries or prevent further ankle injury. Compression increases blood flow through ankle and helps reduce swelling. Antibacterial material.
I bought these to try for my plantar fasciitis, which I've never had in my 20+ years of running. After 4 months of battling it with PT, splints, ultrasounds, icing, stretching, massage, shoe changes, stride changes...everything changes....I stopped altogether just to focus on healing my foot. I wore these babies last night, because it was clear after trying them on that they are not going to be worn during the day, because the seam hits in an uncomfortable spot on the bottom of my foot (hence the 4 stars). That said, sleeping was a safe bet. I woke this morning, peeled them off and stood up. For the first time in 4 months, my feet did not feel tight. In fact, there was NO tightness, no pain, no nothing. I almost ran downstairs to tell my husband. Am I healed? No. But, I think I'm well on my way. They must keep my heel warm so that blood sticks in that area, which is only going to heal the micro tears. Very, VERY happy.
Great Ankle Support
I wear this for long distance running. Great ankle support without the bulk. I actually position this over the ball of my foot for some support for a neuroma, so it's a little tricky to put on since it slides and rolls. Once my foot is in the shoe...no problems. If you wear it on your arch, it should be ok. I am prone to a ton of foot issues - achilles, plantar faciitis, etc. This gives me the added support to keep my issues in check. I'm ordering another one for my other ankle. This is by far the best support that I've found. I didn't give it five stars because I wish it were just a bit longer - again, I wear this over the ball of my foot which is not the intended position. Other than that...it's the best!
Let my toes breathe
I slip these on with the calve sleeves and my toes breathe. Feels like someone is rubbing my feet after a run day. They are big enough on my size 7 feet to go to my toes and well above my ankles.
I wear these as a result of a right ankle posterior tibial tendonitis that has afflicted me since a half-marathon last year. This brace has given me good support without being too thick or overbearing. There have been times when a neoprene sleeve was more appropriate, but I usually wear this at all times.
However, do yourself a favor and buy several. They are sold individually, and you shoulder consider investing in at least 2 pairs (wash and change) to get maximum use.
Great support, takes getting use to but it was a nice fit and helped with my Tendonitis in my ankle.
Well priced and very happy with the it!
This was the second Zensah Ankle Support that I have purchased for my daughter. She really likes this product. We purchased a black one of which she was happy to get. It goes well with most of her outfits. She said that it is very comfortable and gives her good support. She is a small person and has trouble finding things to fit her size. The price was also very good and affordable. Road Runner Sports really came through for us.
Not at all what I expected.
I was running 15+ miles a week until I sprained my ankle. I have used other Zensah products in the past and thought that their ankle support would provide the support for me to start training again. I ordered a S/M. The ankle sleeve slips on an off easily. However it provides no support whatsoever and slides out of place. The side seam is rough and irritates the skin so wearing it for long hours is uncomfortable. I have to say that I cannot recommend this product at all. Zensah needs to try this one again.
Good for recovery, not during exercise
I have been having significant issues with my foot/ankle and needed something with support for long runs while I train for a marathon. I had to cut my run short because this simply did not provide enough support during the run. However, this has proven to be an excellent way to keep the support going through the day (I am a teacher and on my feet long hours) as well as after running.
Training Essential !!
I train for half and full marathons all year round, and having the appropriate ankle supporters are essential for preventative injury purposes. I started using these Zensah ankle supporters last month (July '13), and I will probably keep using them throughout my marathon training.... whether it is on the streets, the trails, or on the treadmills. Thank you, Zensah !!
North Hollywood, CA
Used for tendonitis. Good support. Would recommend. Lies flat so you can run with it on if you like.
General support, not for serious injurie
If you have a serious ankle injury that needs support this is not for you. It doesn't have enough support, it is more like a slightly snug tube sock. Might be good for recovery and rest, but I would never dare a run in it.
Limpy ultra runner
I really like this ankle brace. I run 5 days/wk and my ankle has been hurting a little when I don't run. I wear this brace when I don't run and it has helped stabilize my ankle and the pain has receded.
Orange County, CA
I bought this for my sister who has broken her ankle twice. It gives her a lot of support and comfort. She is not a runner but I would assume if you have a gimpy ankle it will help you with any endeavor.
Relief from Achilles Tendonitis
I can't believe that this lightwork compression "sleeve" works! I finally have relief from Achilles tendonitis and wear it around the clock. I am ordering several more!
ZENSAH ANKLE SUPPORT
My ankles have been really giving me problems. The support when hiking is amazing. Previous products were too thick and I couldn't walk on them. I can't even feel these, they have changed my life!
