Adizero Speedwrap Ankle Brace Right Foot
Not good at all, I wear a size 11 the brace does not prevent a ankle roll. If your ankle rolls out the material just streches. The medal plate is ver uncomfortable on the ball of your ankle. For $30 you can get a very nice ankle brace that will prevent ankle rolls. If you to the a store and try them on stand on the back of your heal and roll your ankle you will feel exactly were the brace does not support your ankle. If your a shooter with no vertical there nice for style. If you plan on jumping, crossing and rebounding these are not the product for you. Find a footlocker that has them so you can try them on before you order them online. Trust me.

Super light and protective ankle brace
Friend bought these for me for my birthday and loved them ! Best ankle brace I have ! About 5-6 weeks ago, I tore a ligament in my right ankle part then bruised it. It still hurts now but after wearing this brace for about 3-4 hours for basketball practice, some of the pain is gone. Whether it's in the head, to be honest, I don't really care ! It temporarily eased my pain which helped me A TON. They fit nicely in my adidas Crazy Light and I don't need to lace it all the way up to feel secure in the collar part. I also liked how the hard plate is only on the outside of the ankle to prevent rolling which was a great plus for me. The elephant print-like also seems to have more grip for a more secure, lockdown feel in the shoe. Thanks adidas for creating this product !

Best in-Game Ankle Brace on the market
I really didn't think that this brace would be supportive enough for my ankles before I bought them but they are light, easy to put on and have great support. Honestly you can hardly feel that you have them on. Another thing is that you should definitely abide by the sizing conventions regardless of what size ankle brace you wear normally. For example I wear a sz 13 shoe so I bought the XL but i had originally bought the Medium because thats the size i wear on ASO braces b/c of how narrow and slim my foot is.

Best Accessory For A Scoring Style Point Guard
I gotta admit it's great, I fit this with my adidas TS Supernatural Creator and adidas adiZero™ Rose 2.5. It's fits me well and giving me a good performance on the court. For better performance make sure you equip with both side of the adiZero™ Speedwrap. adiZero™ Speedwrap increases my quickness, penetration, speed and stability of my crossovers with fancy lay-ups finishing at the rim. It's really great for Scoring Point Guard like me. I am 178 cm at 17. I can't dunk but I can do fancy lay-ups. I have good vertical leap. Thank you for reading my review.

Every basketball player should have this
When I first got myself a pair of the Adidas Speedwrap ankle braces I thought to myself, these are so light and they feel so snuggly. I love the strap because the 3 stripes are very noticable even when wearing a high top basketball shoe. There were many times I should have easily rolled or sprain my ankle but I didn't because I was wearing these ankle braces, the support they provide is top level protection! I am not over exaggerating. The Speedwraps fit perfect in my Adidas basketball shoes and I couldn't see it anyother way.

Adidas would do well to offer these wraps in black and white to blend in with a greater variety of shoes. Having said that, they don't look bad at all.
Having suffered many ankle injuries in the past, I've probably tested about 90% of the braces on the market. While others have offered superior protection and durability, they were always pretty constrictive and bulky.
This product feels like a second sock. Remarkably light and comfortable!
Regarding the sizing, I'm a 10.5-11 and the large fits like a glove. The fit is essential here, as the strategic protection will surely lose its efficiency should you purchase the wrong size.
These are easy to slip on and off, very comfortable, relatively well constructed and nearly weightless. I cannot emphasize that last point enough. You completely forget that you're wearing a protective device once you get moving.
Suggestions for Adidas:
-More colors (at the minimum black)
-A bit more reinforced stitching on the Velcro lock system

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!

These ankle braces are the bomb
I generally play point guard and I'm very active in the paint. These ankle braces are the best braces that i've ever worn, and i've tried a good amount of other ankle braces in a range of different style. I wouldn't recommend these for anyone that is currently suffering from an ankle injury, otherwise I think that these braces are easily the best on the market especially at the price. I've suffered from many sprained ankles and despite wearing other braces as well as high top sneakers I still managed to roll my ankle. I decided to get these because I figured, if they're good enough for D.Rose they should definitely be good enough for me. It didn't take long after I got these on my feet and started playing that I soon forgot I was even wearing them, however I felt much more support on my ankles exactly where I needed it and nowhere that I didn't allowing for optimal mobility, a problem that plagues a majority of other braces. Another thing the Speedwrap has on most braces is their thin profile, they fit snug and close to the ankle unlike many other bulky braces that restrict movement. Right now I'm wearing these with Jordan 7's but I'm thinking about picking up a pair of the Rose 2.5's. Regardless. you need these ankle braces. End of story.

Impressive protection and impeccable performance
My only concern is putting them in the washer. I know they built this brace with machine washable materials but I hope the TPU chassis stays intact and holds its strength in longevity. Ever since I've rolled my ankles cutting through the lane and rapidly changing directions, I knew how important sprain prevention would play a role in maintaining my crossover. Now with this speedwrap ankle brace I have more confidence to cut hard and finish at the rim. Overall great product, I'm very pleased with the performance. Happy Hoopin'!

So how about you just buy the wrap ... Seriously this is a great wrap and its not just for Basketball players. I'm a defensive tackle in high school and i sometimes tweak my right ankle when i tackle. So i bought the wrap. My ankle had been swollen, but when i put it on the swelling went down and i could cut better. I have not put it on in my Derrick rose 2.5's but i have in the crazy lights and it feels like nothings there. Being the fact that it saved me from serious injury i highly recommend this product...ps ADIDAS RULE!!!
