Aircast Airsport Ankle Brace

If you're looking to get additional support following an injury to the ankle, it's important that you find a brace that will stabilise and compress the area sufficiently. The Aircast AirSport Ankle Brace is designed with foam-filled aircells to cushion and support the ankle. This provides you with a level of compression that's tailored to your needs and ankle shape, making the recovery process as speedy as possible so you can get back on your feet sooner.

What's Included?

  • 1 x Ankle Brace

Which Size Aircast AirSport Ankle Brace Is Right for Me?

The Aircast AirSport Support is available in five different sizes. To find the right size for your ankle, simply take your UK shoe size and match it against the sizing chart below.

Size UK Male Shoe Size UK Female Shoe Size
Extra Small Under Size 4 Under Size 3
Small Size 4 - 6.5 Size 4.5 - 7.5
Medium Size 7.5 - 10.5 Size 8.5 - 10
Large Sizes 11.5 - 13.5 N/A

For Which Ankle Sprain Grades Is the AirSport Ankle Brace?

Ankle sprains can differ in severity, and are generally categorised into one of three grades. The Aircast AirSport Ankle Brace is suitable for ankle sprain grades one and two, which can be identified as follows:

  • Ankle Sprain Grade 1: Sore ankle with slight swelling; your ligament may be overstretched
  • Ankle Sprain Grade 2: Prolonged pain and swelling; unable to bear weight on your injured ankle; some bruising from a partial ligament tear

If you feel you are suffering from one of the more severe ankle sprain grades, we would recommend you consult a doctor for advice. They will be able to provide you with the best plan for getting you back on your feet.

Can I Continue to Wear the Aircast AirSport Ankle Brace After the Sprain Has Healed?

The Aircast AirSport Ankle Brace is designed to be worn once your injury has already started to heal, helping you to get back on your feet. If you would like to continue to support your ankle once the injury has fully healed, we recommend the Aircast A60 Ankle Support. This will help to prevent further injury to your ankle once you're fully recovered.

What If My Aircast AirSport Feels Tight?

If you have correctly followed our sizing guidance and fitting instructions, you should find that your AirSport Ankle Brace fits snugly around the ankle, providing support and stability without intruding on your instep or running motion. If your brace feels tight, simply adjust the ATF and Achilles straps located at the back of the brace, as shown in the image below:

The universal nature of the Aircast AirSport Ankle Brace means that it can be worn on either foot. This way it can be worn again at a later date should you receive an injury on either ankle.

Should Socks Be Worn with the AirSport Ankle Brace?

It is advised that a sock is worn underneath the AirSport Ankle Brace. This helps to ensure optimal comfort, protection, and support.

Which Shoes is the AirSport Suitable For?

When wearing the Aircast AirSport, we would recommend wearing shoes that have a loose design. It is also best to avoid boots and high-topped shoes if possible to ensure the highest level of comfort in wear. Please note that unless your shoes are extremely tight, you will not need to buy a bigger pair of shoes to accommodate the brace.

What's the Aircast AirSport Ankle Brace Made Of?

The Aircast AirSport Ankle Brace is made from foam-filled aircells, with semi-rigid plastic stays either side of the aircells for added protection. These aircells add padding to the insides of the anatomically shaped stays, improving support without compromise to comfort. Additionally, there is a fabric coating on the brace to improve durability.

How Do I Clean the AirSport Ankle Brace?

The entire brace can be wiped down with lukewarm water and a mild soap. It should then be air dried; do not tumble dry.

At first, it felt so bulky, but after wearing it a few times for playing sport, it's actually quite comfortable and it gives the support I need. I found this is more comfortable than the Aircast A60.
