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
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.
