If the brace won’t fit in your shoe, it’s usually because of one of the following reasons:

  • Do you have the correct size ankle brace for your ankle? We recommend not using your shoe size to determine brace size and instead measuring your ankle circumference per the size chart on the product page.
  • If you measured your ankle circumference and you have the correct size ankle brace, then the issue may be the type of shoe you are using. Sneakers are best to wear with ankle braces, but more specifically sneakers with a traditional tongue and laces.
  • The first couple of times you wear the brace, you may have to loosen the laces all of the way down to the bottom of the tongue and then relace them over the brace. 

At first it might seem like the brace is too big for the shoe but once the brace is broken in it becomes much lower profile and form-fitting.
