If you have weak ankles like me, anything having to do with ankle support is both irritating and necessary. This brace fits well and I can wear it with most of my shoes and boots. The sole and body of the brace are comfortable. I like to wear polypro sock under it. The design is a little bulky and you can feel the laces. It provides reasonable support for its lightweight design. Breathability could be better, could be worse. It is a little time-consuming to get in and out of it, as you have to tighten and loosen the laces throughout the whole thing to put it on and take it off.
