Where to get ankle supports?

There are different types of ankle supports on the market each with its pros
and cons.  I am looking for manufacturers/suppliers of good ankle supports.  
Anyone knowing the names of manufactures could you please e-mail me with the
company's name and if possible, their location or address (US or Canada)

Thanks,

The one I've got and like is an ASO laceup type brace that also has
wide, thin crossing straps that wrap across the top of the foot, under
the arch and velcro up against the side of the brace.  Basically, it's
better than the standard laces-only brace that seems rather common
since the 2 straps provide additional suport.  Finally, there's a
neoprene wide support that fastens across the shin to provide more
support and ensure the laces don't get caught on anything.

I got this from my lower-leg specialist after spraining my ankle in a
tournament.  The tag on it says simply "ASO" on one side, and

Medical Specialties Inc.
C***te, NC 28205
(704) 357-6057

on the other side of the tag.

It cost about $42 (U.S.) from my doctor.  I'm trying to find another
one for less money for my other ankle.  Good luck.

I've tried a lot of different ankle supports, all the way from Ace
bandages to elastic to lace-up types to Safety Ankles. The best ones I've
found are Active Ankles. They have very free fore-aft flexibility, while
restricting sideways motion very strongly. Once you get them tight (after a
little warmup) they don't need any more adjustment, and you can just forget
you're wearing them.
