Adizero Speedwrap Ankle Brace Left Foot
Easy, Quick, Durable
Not the greatest ankle support. But for those of you who want a quick, easy, durable and not to mention supportive ankle strap this is it. I've tried some ankle braces before, some where too bulky or too thin without providing support. This strap provides all of the elements that I was looking for in an ankle strap. It is lightweight, not too bulky, supportive and really easy to wear and take off. The only thing that kept me from giving it 5 stars is that it is a little overpriced. Paying $60 for a pair sounds a little pricey. I think $20 each for these straps sounds more reasonable.

Good ankle brace.
When I hurt my ankle playing in the Kobe's, my peers and my coach said that it would be best that I get an ankle brace until I get better. Naturally, I got the ones that D.rose wears because he is my favorite player and these are the ones he wears. But I still had my doubts because I thought they would be uncomfortable, limit my mobility, or take away from my game. And when I played in them, I saw that I was wrong. They were super comfortable, didn't take away from my mobility or my vertical, and kept my ankles protected. I was very satisfied with them, so much that I will still wear them if my ankle is just bothering me. Great ankle braces. At first I wondered why they were priced so high. 60 dollars for both??? But now I understand. I feel like i payed for quality.

Work well for soccer!
Used these the other day in a game and worked really well. Slim enough to not make your cleats feel too small, you can also feel a lot of support when you plant your foot. I wish the velcro strap on top wasn't so thick... Im sure it looks good with some high tops. It would be nice if they made one specifically to go with soccer cleats, or better yet built into the cleats. My favorite part is the spacing in front of the ankle by the laces, most braces always pinch there. Also wanted to note they run small. Over all great...any one who has rolled their ankle and wants to play to be able to play another game should get these!

Nice fit and great product
This is awesome. I got it yesterday at an Adidas store and it is perfect size. There is no need to buy a size smaller or bigger. Speedwraps fit the size of your shoes. It really does prevent your ankles from rolling and keep them protected. This is only $30 and is cheap compared to other ankle braces. It is also super light. Best Adidas accessory ever and I seriously recommend it to all of you guys looking for ankle braces.

The fit is great. In the past I have had trouble finding a comfortable ankle brace that fits well into football cleats, as well as high top basketball shoes. These ankle braces do both and give me the support I feel I need, yet flexible for movement in all my sports. On a funny note, they can be removed quickly. Just the other day at football practice, a bee flew on my leg, crawled under my ankle brace and stung me. I was able to get the brace off at record speed. :) I highly recommend Adizero speed wrap brace!

Amazing, Light ankle brace
Bought these in conjunction with the right foot one. As it says on the back of the ankle brace, adidas adiZero Speedwrap, Super light weight ankle protection. Good durability. Be aware though, that the near bottom part of the hard plate-protected side might crease a little, but does not affect performance. Good lockdown, secure feel in the shoe. Recommended for all players who need a good, light ankle brace.

Best Ankle Brace Ever Period!!
Love these!! They are extremely light and not so bulky opposed the first edition of the SpeedWraps, which I purchased also. Not only does these give great support, but your much more mobile and can slash to the court much quicker and feel confident you not going to sprain your ankle. They fit great with the Adizero DRose shoes as well. Must have!!

Left, right, they both work.
I wear them on the court when hooping, and on the pitch for indoor soccer (both full of hard cuts and stopping on a dime). Even with a light wrap on my right ankle, the Speedwraps didn't make anything too bulky or restrictive with a sock over them.
Of course this won't replace a full on brace, but it is great to have the reinforcement in a lightweight package, worth the price.

Hands down best ankle brace that I've ever worn
I saw a web interview that Derrick Rose did and he spoke about how much that he loved the Adizero Speedwrap Ankle Brace and since I already bought the Adizero shoe, I figured I'd try it out. I had a grade 2 ankle sprain about 5 months ago and haven't been able to explode as well as I could prior to my injury. This ankle brace helped a lot and now I can't imagine playing ball without it

adiZero SpeedWrap Ankle Brace
The breathability of this ankle wrap really surprised me. Most ankle braces make my ankle sweat and hot, but with the adiZero construction it made my ankle cooler. And the coolness leading to better performance on the court.
Ankle Support: 9.5/10
These ankle brace's ankle support are outstanding. Not just some fabric that you throw together and call a ankle brace, but this brace is built tough. A hard shell on the outside bone of your ankle prevents any hyperextension. I would say this ankle support is more of a preventer that a healing brace.
The fit of this ankle wrap, to me, was a little more on the tighter side. I wear a size 10.5 and thought I would get a size M brace, that might be my mistake. But the tightness turned out to my advantage a bit.
The adiZero material is great, one of my all time favorites of adidas shoes. The brace feels like it would stand up to a lot of abuse. However, once worn a lot, it could develop visible fold creases which might not look that attractive.
This brace would definitely last me a long time build on it's construction. adidas products have always been a first for me.
Hope this review helped some of you!
