Bracoo are perhaps not the best known manufacturer of sports and medical products out there, but currently their Neoprene ankle support sits at the top of Amazon’s best sellers list when it comes to ankle braces. So what is it about the Bracoo breathable that makes it so well regarded, and sees it on the ankle of so many sportspeople, athletes and more around the world?
Features of the Bracoo Breathable Neoprene Ankle Support
The first thing to mention about the brace is that it is one size fits all, which takes a lot of the hassle out of the purchase. A lot of braces aren’t exactly the same as shoe sizes and it can take some experimenting to get a comfortable fit. The cleverly adjustable design of this means that this is not an issue, and it fits up to a US11 size shoe with no worries.
The material that this is made out of is a feature introduced by the manufacturer for a few reasons, it keeps in the heat which is good not only for comfort but for the muscles and joint in question, and also it is smooth and avoids skin irritation, there is little worse as an athlete than discomfort in the feet and ankles and having fixed your ankle issues the last thing you want is blisters or other painful skin ailments.
The ‘contour design’ means that it will mold itself to your own foot, again, great for your comfort, the straps are in place to give you control of the distribution and strength of support, and for an affordable, easy to apply brace this is full of flexibility, making it one of the most versatile products in this space.
The open heel design is something we see quite often in ankle braces and is there to allow freedom and flexibility, leaving the heel uncovered feels a lot better than having it wrapped and uncomfortable.
Price will no doubt play a part in your decision of whether to buy or not. If you are buying braces for both ankles then it can become expensive, but fortunately with the Bracoo breathable this is not the case, although the original RRP is around $40 you can pick them up a lot cheaper than this, which contributes to why it sells so well.
What Others Have Said
Naturally for such a high selling product there are tons of reviews out there, both on online retailers and other websites. The only criticism I have seen is that this is a soft brace, which is a good thing for many of us but if you are doing strenuous exercise you may need something a bit more sturdy. Many users are joggers, walkers or those looking for an ankle brace for everyday use, for which the Bracoo is perfect. The vast majority of ankle brace reviews for this are positive, usually getting a 4 or 5 star review on Amazon, and elsewhere.
If you are looking for an affordable, everyday ankle brace then the Bracoo breathable Neoprene ankle support could well be the one for you! There’s a reason it sells so well, and very few find themselves disappointed when buying this brace.
