Aircast AirSport Ankle Brace

If your ankle injury has improved significantly but you're not quite ready to begin exercising again without an ankle brace, the Aircast AirSport Ankle Brace can provide you with cushioning and additional support. This helps to ensure that your ankle remains supported until the injury or condition has fully healed.

The Aircast AirSport Ankle Brace is designed for the second stage of recovery (i.e. when the injury has started to heal). If you are in the first or third stage of recovery following an ankle injury, we would recommend checking out the Aircast Air-Stirrup Universe Ankle Brace and the AirSport A60 Ankle Support respectively.

How Does the Aircast AirSport Ankle Brace Help Following An Injury?

The following features and benefits help to support and protect your ankle while it heals:

  • ATF Cross Strap: The ATF cross strap provides compression to relieve pain and stabilisation to prevent further injury
  • Foam-Filled Aircells: Foam-filled aircell technology is specially designed to reduce swelling
  • Forefoot and Shin Wraps: The integral forefoot and shin wraps provide additional compression and stabilisation for pain relief and support
  • Semi-Rigid Shell: The semi-rigid shell supports and protects the ankle from inversion and eversion, helping to keep your ankle protected while it continues to heal
  • Step-In Design: The 'step-in' design, allowing you to step in, strap up, and go about your day, allows you to wear the brace with ease, ideal for quick and effective use

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.

What Size of Aircast AirSport Ankle Brace Do I Need?

The Aircast AirSport Support is available in five different sizes, allowing you to get a more tailored fit. To find out which size you require, simply use your UK shoe size and consult the table below. If your size falls in between two shoe sizes, it is advised that you choose the next size up if you suffer from swelling.

Size UK Shoe Size
Extra Small Under Size 3
Small Sizes 3 - 5
Medium Sizes 6 - 8
Large Sizes 9 - 11
Extra Large Above Size 11

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.

Can I Wear the Aircast AirSport Brace On Either Foot?

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.

How Easy Is It to Put On the Aircast AirSport Ankle Brace?

The Aircast AirSport Ankle Brace is quick and easy to put on. As it features a 'step-in' design, all you need to do is insert your toes first into the back of the brace, strap up the adjustable straps, and go about your daily activities as normal! The heel of the support can be adjusted according to your needs.

Take a look at the video below to get a hands-on view of fitting the brace to your 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 Should I Do After I Take Off the Aircast AirSport Ankle Brace?

After removing the Aircast AirSport Ankle Brace, we recommend that you gently apply an ice pack to the area. This will feel soothing on your ankle and continue to help to reduce pain and swelling. The Dura Soft Foot and Ankle Ice Pack Wrap is a perfect solution, providing you with optimal positioning with minimal effort!

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.

My husband was really struggling after breaking his ankle and potentially needs an operation but due to the pandemic they will not operate at the moment. This ankle support has really helped him get around easier without needing the full boot and more mobile thankfully

Great help with my ankle rehab
Tuesday, 1 October 2019  | 

I broke and dislocated my ankle requiring surgery (it also caused a spiral fracture to my leg). After a plaster cast and boot for 6 weeks I was keen to get back to normal. This brace is brilliant in providing support as I exercise and flex the ankle. It is also providing me with full confidence as I push the limits. Easy to fit and comfortable to wear. Only fits with trainers not shoes (well, my shoes. Might fit with yours).

Excellent ankle support
Tuesday, 17 September 2019  | 

I bought this as a second support after being given my first by my hospital for an unstable bone in my ankle. I needed another one when I washed the first one. I am delighted that the strap is longer! My first one has a shorter strap so is difficult to do up. It's a pity it doesn't come in a flesh colour. Black looks so ugly with summer clothes!!
