Alternatives to the Aircast A60 Ankle Brace

Tuesday, 17 December 2019  |  Eugene

The Aircast A60 Ankle Brace is one of our most popular ankle supports, but we know that your ankles are as unique as you are, and the A60 may not always be the right choice. If you've tried the Aircast A60 and have decided that it's not a good fit for your needs, then our list of alternative ankle braces may be able to help.

As the A60 support is designed to prevent rollover and ankle sprains, our product experts have sorted through our vast range to offer some other braces that provide similar support. As with the A60, the following braces can also be worn in almost any type of trainer or shoe, making them ideal for getting back on your feet after an injury.

Not Comfortable Enough?

Thuasne Malleo Dynastab Boa Ankle Brace

While our customers report that the Aircast A60 is the most comfortable ankle brace around, different foot and ankle shapes will mean that some opinions can differ. The Thuasne Dynastab Boa Ankle Brace provides incredible comfort with its lightweight micro-aerated 3D fabric and Boa Lacing System, making it a perfect A60 rival with the same great rollover protection.

Thuasne Malleo Dynastab Boa Ankle Brace
  • Lightweight ankle brace offering a high level of support
  • Ideal for restarting sports after mild to moderate sprains
  • Quick and easy fitting with the Boa Lacing System
  • Extra straps and a flexible metallic splint maximise stability


Not the Right Size?

Donjoy Strapping Elastic Ankle Support

If you're keen to stick with the popular Donjoy brand, then the Donjoy Strapping Elastic Ankle Support is a good choice. Like the Aircast A60, the slim design ensures it can fit comfortably under shoes and socks for injury prevention during sport. With a sizing system based on ankle circumference and a versatile strapping system, this is a great option if you find the A60 sizing doesn't provide enough wiggle room.

Donjoy Strapping Elastic Ankle Support
  • Suitable for ankle injury and instability
  • Supports and compresses the ankle
  • Ideal for preventative use in sports
  • Fits either the left or right ankle


Not Enough Stability?

BioSkin TriLok Ankle Ligaments Support

Stabilisation is key both during and after recovery of an ankle sprain, and the BioSkin TriLok Ankle Ligaments Support provides this without the more rigid stabiliser of the A60. If you find the plastic stabiliser in the Aircast A60 to be uncomfortable, then the strapping system of the BioSkin TriLok is worth a try. It controls the inversion and eversion of the ankle, helping to take the pressure off your ankle ligaments to reduce any ongoing pain.

BioSkin TriLok Ankle Ligaments Support
  • Ankle support for conditions that range from sprains to arthritis
  • Works by controlling the motion of the forefoot for correct positioning
  • Suitable for use with socks, shoes and while playing sports
  • Designed to work as an extra ligament to improve foot and ankle problems


Not Supportive Enough?

Aircast AirSport Ankle Brace

Featured as one step up in support from the A60 in our Three Stages of Recovery article, the Aircast AirSport Ankle Brace is an ideal option if you want a little bit more support for your ankle. With a similar feel and fit to the A60, the AirSport is our pick if you like the A60 but want some more protection and immobilisation.

Aircast AirSport Ankle Brace
  • Cushions the ankle and reduces pain while you're recovering
  • For support when you're almost ready to begin exercising again
  • Assists with rehabilitation for functional recovery 
  • Quick and easy to apply with no measurements required


Not Enough Compression?

MedSpec ASO Ankle Stabiliser Brace

Gentle compression helps to soothe pain and aid recovery, and the MedSpec ASO Ankle Stabiliser Brace features a lace structure designed to provide your ankle with adjustable compression. All you need to do is pull the laces with no knots or bows needed, then tighten at the designed level of compression. Like the A60, the discreet design of the MedSpec ASO is ideal for wearing during sports, and it is just as breathable to keep your ankle feeling fresh and comfortable.

MedSpec ASO Ankle Stabiliser Brace
  • Breathable ankle support suitable for sports
  • Provides ankle stability to prevent ankle injury
  • Lace enclosure provides support and allows easy application
  • Suitable for either the left or the right foot


Not the Right Injury?

Bauerfeind MalleoTrain Plus Ankle Support

The Bauerfeind MalleoTrain Plus Ankle Support is specifically designed to help prevent ankle twisting, unlike the rollover protection that the A60 focuses on. If you're prone to ankle injuries but find that you're more at risk of twisting your ankle rather than rolling over it, then the MalleoTrain Plus may provide you with more support than the A60 for this type of injury. Breathable, slim and secure, this Bauerfeind is another popular rival to the A60.

Bauerfeind MalleoTrain Plus Ankle Support
  • Stabilises the ankle against twisting
  • Ideal for sprains & ligament weakness
  • Breathable knit for comfort and wearability
  • Three-level strap system stablises ankle joint in all directions


Still Haven't Decided?
