The Adrenaline features GuideRails, which limit unwanted movement in your ankles while supporting and aligning your foot.

What is best to support a weak ankle?

Protect. If you feel the instability daily through walking or standing, wearing an ankle brace can help support your weak ankles. The Trizone Ankle Sleeve is recommended for daily use. If you are looking to stay active and play sports, we recommend an ankle brace that provides moderate protection.

Are high top shoes good for weak ankles?

In fact, high top shoes may actually lead to ankle injuries. A more supportive shoe does not allow the muscles of the foot to adequately build the strength to do its job. Therefore, the muscles become weak and rely on the shoe to do the stabilization work.

How do you fix ankle instability?

Often, patients with ankle instability can be treated without surgery by strengthening the muscles that control the ankle joint, avoiding high risk activities, and using a supportive brace or shoe to decrease the risk of recurrent sprains.
