Ultra High-5 Reviews
Garvin from Ohio
I love the brace, in fact I need another one. I found out about your brace after Googling "latest technology in ankle brace". I searched through a few products, and found the Ultra appeared to be the most comfortable and strongest product out there. I am a retired policeman, I loved playing basketball and did construction work in my spare time. Over the years I developed a foot problem. Even my orthopedic physician complimented the brace. Continue to make great products!

We heard about Ultra Ankle through a volleyball friend that is involved with the Art of Coaching CLinics in the United States. We had never seen them in Canada before. Both of my sons, 17 & 15 years old were coming off of high ankle sprains- volleyball related injuries- and so we were looking for a different brace, other than the lace up ones that they were wearing when they sprained their ankles. They had both just purchased mid & hightop shoes, and I could not find a hard style brace that fit into these types of shoes, so I was going to have to purchase them new shoes, as well as new braces. Luckily, we came across the Ultra Ankle High 5 brace, which fit into their mid & high shoes, and which they found extremely comfortable and supportive. They will continue to wear these braces on both ankles for volleyball, and maybe even during basketball.

I wear the ankle brace to stabilize my twice-broken & often sprained left ankle while trail running. My longest run so far has been 9 miles, without any negative consequences. The stability is reassuring, as that ankle is chronically weak. I heard about the braces through the UConn Women's Basketball team training staff. Maya Moore wore these braces throughout her career there.

This is the second Ultra Ankle I have purchased. The first one lasted 8 yrs. I got 2 this time, one for each ankle. I am 50 years old and still play basketball in competitive leagues. The braces keep me confident and healthy. Wish I had them in my 20s maybe my ankles wouldn’t be so torn up now. Thank you for a great product.
Barbara from IN
My daughter loves her ankle braces and doesn't complain about wearing them at all since the moment we got them. Our high school coach recommended Ultra Ankle braces to his players. Yes, she will be wearing them for basketball, but started to wear them as soon as we received them during volleyball season. Thank you!
David from California
Great product! I had a player purchase the Ultra last season. He still wears one on each ankle even though his ankle has healed. Then my son suffered a high ankle sprain in wrestling practice. Unfortunately it was two weeks before football started. I knew he would need the ultra if he wanted to play football this season. He's probably 95% healthy, but he knows he's safe with the ultra on. His biggest fear was the brace would slow him down, but now he doesn't even think about it.
Ron from California
I have arthritic ankles that are not as strong as they should be. I use the Zooms when I play golf and the High 5s for occasions where I have to walk relatively long distances, such as at airports. This is mostly for a little extra support and protection. The braces are obviously not going to “fix” my ankles, but they are supportive.
Tom from Iowa
We have been extremely happy with the brace. My son plays college basketball and strained his Achilles and ankle. This brace let him keep paying without any down time. I would recommend it to everyone.
Alex from NY
My father purchased the Ultra Ankle 2 brace for me after I sprained ankle pretty badly during a soccer game this past June. I was worried because my college pre-season was starting and wasn't sure if I would be ready. I went through 2 months of physical therapy and my ankle still didn't feel 100%. I knew taping wasn't going to do the job, so we looked around and came across the Ultra Ankle 2. It only took a few training sessions prior to my pre-season for it to feel good enough to not even notice it. I am now wearing it during my pre-season training. The hinged technology of the brace allows all the flexibility I need while it is also giving me the confidence to play with full force without having to worry about that "tweak" that could set me back to day one. Thank you for making this brace available to athletes. I would recommend this to any athlete who has injured their ankle and wants to protect it without feeling like it is holding you back.
Linda from Maryland
I'm not a professional athlete (and I don't play one on TV)! I'm a middle-aged hiker with a weak ankle. I sprained it (again) while hiking with my nephews over Memorial Day weekend. There was another hiking trip planned for the 4th of July and I was determined to spend at least some time on the trail. My usual assortments of braces were useless. I was looking for something that would let me get through my normal work day without risking further injury and would give me some support while hiking. The Ultra Ankle was perfect! I couldn't re-sprain the ankle if I tried. I'm still using it on the weekends when I'm landscaping or hiking. It's lightweight, doesn't chafe and allows for a relatively normal range of motion. Some of the best money I've ever spent.
Thom from Vermont
I am very satisfied with the Ultra Ankle 2....I had sprained my ankle in Feb, and it was a difficult rehab. Thanks to the brace, I was able to enjoy my vacation in Utah in March which involved extensive mountain hiking in national parks.....6 to 8 mile hikes daily over 3 days.... I wouldn't have been able to do it without the brace. It was comfortable and supportive over uneven terrain in a way that conventional taping and braces were not. I had shown the brace to my doctor who really liked the design of the brace as well....absolutely a great purchase for me...
Lynn from Ohio
Purchasing the Ultra Ankle was a lifesaver. It really helped stabilize my ankle and gave great support. I had a vacation planned, and if I had not had the support it gave me I would have missed out on a lot of the vacation. Thanks.
Michael from Pennsylvania
I have had an ankle problem for most of my life. It has gotten worse in last ten years. Football and motorcycle injuries have stretched ligaments past repair. I cannot stand those stretch ankle supports nor do they work. I have tried all kinds of boots to no avail. I have just learned to live with it during work, hunting, and lots of other activities. This Ultra Ankle 2 works!!! I’m looking forward to hunting again in the Rockies. I will more than likely buy another one so I do not have to switch from boot to boot. Thanks Again!
Jeff from Illinois
My son is a junior in high school. He participates in all sports throughout the year. He twisted his ankle in one of the first official basketball practices in the late fall. Someone gave him a lace-up brace. He used this with OK results. A couple of games he also had his ankle taped. He asked some players on other teams what they were wearing & they talked about the Ultra Ankle. He ordered the Ultra Ankle 2 model. He has been very happy with the performance of his Ultra Ankle 2 braces and has not thought about his ankle any longer.
Andrew from New Mexico
Love it, working really well, all pain is gone but still using it for running (about 3 miles, 5X per week). I am very happy with the Ultra Ankle 2.
Aaron from California
I recently purchased the Ultra Ankle 2 brace and I am very happy with it. I was coming off major ankle reconstruction, and was to a point in my recovery where I wanted the support and strength to allow me to elevate myself back to the level I was at prior to surgery. The Ultra Ankle 2 gave me the confidence and support to allow me to do this. Thank you for your product.
Donna from Georgia
Thank you for first inventing the "active ankle" and now the even superior Ultra Ankle 2. My daughter, Kristen (setter c/o 2011), severely sprained her ankle playing volleyball when an opposing blocker came under the net. She was wearing ankle protection....but NOT Ultra Ankles. After a month in a cast and many days of expensive rehabilitation, the Hughston Orthopedic Clinic here in Columbus GA put Kristen in the BEST brace on the market for preventing injuries.....the Ultra Ankle 2. Kristen has played injury-free for over a year and will take her Ultra Ankles with her as she leaves to play volleyball for the University of Southern Mississippi. Naturally when my daughter Madison made a 13 year old club team I immediately ordered a pair of Ultra Ankles for her too! Thanks for making such a positive difference in the lives of our athletes!
Judy from Pennsylvania
It's terrific. One of the best things I've ever purchased. Great product. Comfortable and really stabilizes the ankle.
Lisa from Illinois
The Ultra Ankle 2 braces were exactly what my son needed. He really likes the way they support his ankles, and the way they feel.
Kyle from Virginia
I purchased the Ultra Ankle 2 after re-injuring my ankle while wearing a different product. I was extremely pleased with my experience and have since recommended the product to several others. My ankles have been an issue for me since I was a teenager (now 28) and this is the only product I have ever used that allows me to do all the things I love and not worry about injury.
Joseph from Ohio
I think that your product is fabulous. I am 57 years old. I sustained an ankle injury in high school and have a few bone screws. Obviously my entire right ankle now is pretty swollen and arthritic. I have been facing an ankle fusion surgery for a few years. Prior to buying your product, for any activity such as golf etc., I would wrap my ankle with 3M Coban. Now the Ultra Ankle 2 provides a level of support and comfort that I could not achieve with an elastic wrap. I have not yet tested all the activities such as long distance walking, but I am going to test your product further. All in all, I believe that I can either avoid or delay my surgery indefinitely and have full use of my ankle due to your product.
Ganesh from Missouri
The Ultra Ankle 2 is simply the best ankle brace/support that I have ever used. Blends in as a part of my body and I literally forget that I have it on me and enjoy my sports and athletic activities. Big thanks to your team. Now I wonder why I have wasted my money on several other ankle braces that did nothing more than either squeeze my feet and make me really uncomfortable.
Chad from New York
My daughter had high ankle sprain playing basketball. She was out for over 6 weeks. The brace seems to give her extra support and protection from reinjuring her ankle. She wears it every day to practice and games. I placed it under the insole of the sneaker and it seems to be comfortable for her.
Jilliane from Canada
I couldn't be happier with my Ultra Ankle 2 brace. I had a serious foot/ankle injury and was unable to get the proper support as my ankle was very weak. The brace gave me the stability I needed. Great product!
Scott from Iowa
I don't personally use your Ultra Ankle 2 but both of my daughters do. I have a sophomore and an 8th grader that use them both for volleyball and basketball. They are extremely happy with how they perform and I am pleased with how we do not have any ankle sprains or tweaks. I have recommended them too many other families who also have children that are in sports.
Henry from New Jersey
Brace worked fine. My son recommended it. He also had ankle problems. Problem was that I had drop foot and my physical therapist told me I needed a brace to keep my foot straight.
Tim from South Carolina
I can’t overstate what the Ultra Ankle 2 brace has done for me. The brace has allowed me to continue playing tennis regularly without pain or fear of further damaging a torn tendon that was the original reason for me to buy the brace. I have recommended it to a number of my tennis associates who have seen the dramatic difference in my movement since I started wearing the Ultra Ankle 2. I would give it five star thumbs up!
Vinnie from New Zealand
Amazing feeling being able to run, side step, jump and twist without the fear of twisting my ankle. I don't think I’ll play sports without them again. Fast delivery especially considering I live in New Zealand. I will strongly recommend the Ultra Ankle 2 to my friends.
Jay from New York
The Ultra Ankle 2 is great. I injured my ankle twice within a week and was in a lot of pain. I tried a brace from a local store and found that it didn’t give me any protection from re-injury and very little support. When I found the Ultra Ankle site, I was hoping that it did everything it claimed. Well, it does. I was able to walk with full ankle motion but without risk of re-injury since my ankle can’t move or twist further than it’s supposed to. There have been many times that I know I would have re-injured my ankle without the brace, including a short backpacking trip that I went on last weekend.
Carl from California
I love the Ultra Ankle 2. I had ankle ligament surgery recently because my ankle was trashed from my twenty years plus with the military. The brace has allowed me to get out a lot earlier than normal and start walking, running and riding my bike. It provides much more support than the Aircast I was given. A great Product.
Travis from Pennsylvania
I had two sprains on the same ankle this past lacrosse season and was still in a lot of pain this summer. Since using the Ultra Ankle 2 brace I have had minimal pain, with added stability. It’s lightweight, low on bulk and overall very comfortable. Thank you so much
Chris from Colorado
I just got back from an intense 3 day backpacking trip where there was some severe uphill, downhill and loose terrain. The Ultra Ankle 2 performed great on my sensitive ankle. I would highly recommend the product to anyone
Tim from Ohio
The brace has worked as advertised. It keeps lateral stability while allowing free movement back and forth.
Wendel for Iowa
The Ultra Ankle 2 actually made me walk correctly, I over pronate and the brace forces me to walk correctly.
Ganesh from Iowa
I have used several braces before purchasing the Ultra Ankle 2. It feels light and good on my feet. I have used the brace just a few times and it’s definitely much better than the rest that I have used previously
Artem from New-Hampshire
I bought the Ultra Ankle 2. It was the best money I've spent in a long time. I play badminton competitively and have had severe left ankle injuries. Without the Ultra Ankle 2 I would not be able to concentrate on my game due to fear of rolling my ankle on every point. With the Ultra Ankle 2 I am able to play at full speed and not worry about my left ankle with every step. I love the product and I would recommend it to anyone who has an ankle injury, or has chronic ankle instability.
Marcos from Finland
I use the Ultra Ankle 2 three times a week for indoor volleyball, after ligament rupture some time ago. I tested other products before, the Ultra Ankle 2 gives me the perfect protection and stability without the feeling of obstructions. I recommended the products to others, which also use it successfully. The purchasing process using your web portal works perfect.
Cliff from California
I love it.
I wear the Ultra Ankle 2 every time I spar or work out heavy, especially when throwing right round house kicks and having to post on the injured left ankle-foot. I have been wearing it over a month now and am very pleased. With the brace on I feel confident about the ankle and don't worry about foot placement all the time.
I continue to rehab the ankle with all the traditional stuff: resistance, bands, stretching, etc. The brace simply provides peace of mind from further injury. I would (and have) recommended it to anyone with an ankle injury or prone to them.
Rafael from Virginia
I really like the UA2. It's well made, comfortable, and easy to put on. Overall, I like your products and wish your company a long and successful future.
Jeff from Missouri
We purchased two ankles braces for our 15 year old son because he had rolled both ankles in basketball this season and was looking for something to help prevent future problems. He loves the braces. He wears them both for basketball and wears one on his right ankle for triple and long jump. We are definite fans of the Ultra Ankle 2 brace.
