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.
I have owned 2 pairs of the Energy Boosts and LOVED these shoes as hands down the best and most durable neutral trainers I've found. I wanted to get a distance racing or tempo shoe with Boost, but wanted just a little more cushion than the Adios. Along comes the Boston 5 , and I was definitely not disappointed by this shoe. It's got a lighter, firmer and slightly lower to the ground feel than the Energy Boost, but is not lacking in cushioning whatsoever with distance up to 15 miles so far. As I said, great addition!
Breathability: 8.5/10 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. Fit: 8/10 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. Material: 8.5/10 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. Longevity: 8.5/10 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!
I got these last week as an early Christmas present. So far I've put 24 miles on them. The bottom of the shoe is great. The boost foam makes it cushioned but it is still responsive and light and the traction on roads is phenomenal. However, I'm not very happy with the upper. The toe box is quite narrow, the length is good (I ordered a size 11) but the D width is really freakin' tight. Also, why Adidas chose to make the toe of the shoe out of felt is beyond me. I've had to put a lubricant on my toes to stop them from rubbing against the shoe and each other. I hope that Adidas fixes the upper on this shoe because it is a dang good running shoe.
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.
For me, the sizing is always tricky with Adidas shoes. I went up a full size in these. Normally wear a 9.5, tried on a 10 and it was too tight, 10.5 is just right. From the very first moment these shoes felt GREAT on my foot. I usually use that as a gauge for buying running shoes. As a 43 year old who has sustained many injuries over the years, I like softer running shoes. These are the best of both worlds, IMO, because the boost sole provides a very soft landing (I do all my runs on pavement/concrete) but the shoes still have plenty of "pop" for when you up the tempo. At 10mm, the heel-to-toe drop is a bit higher than I prefer (I like 6mm or 8mm) but I don't scrape my heels in these shoes because of the way the heel is shaped, there is a slitght "upturn" to it that works with my midfoot stride. I have also learned that it is not all about static drop. Drop is really dynamic, especially if you are a midfoot to light heel striker like me. A soft heel, which this shoe has, flattens out more when weighted during footstrike. I also have Saucony Triumph 12 (ISO), which are marketed as cushioned shoes. While they ARE soft, I find the Boost soles even softer and more comfortable. I think the Solar Red looks awesome. Great color. I will definitely buy another pair of these shoes.
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.
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
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!!
I've had to wear ankle braces or tap for almost 8 years now, so i know my way around braces. in terms of comfort speed and visual aesthetic these braces are the top of crop. Ive been taped ive worn, elastic support and light weight lace ups and light weight figure eight wraps, but in my experience these are the best. The fit is exceptional and it makes me feel secure and confident in my abilities, basketball is 90% confidence anyway, like most things its a mental game
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.
I've used many ankle braces over the years, mostly the lace up kind. These adiZero speedwraps are great! I use them with the D Rose shoes and combined they feel lighter than my last pair of adidas shoes!! They fit VERY snug, almost too snug. I wear 12's and the Larges barely fit! I remember wearing the lace up kind and I always had a hard time fitting them inside whatever shoe I had. Don't have that problem with these. They fit tight...with the hard side being the outside of your foot, the inside soft. The adjustable velcro strap is nice. I've played in them only once (first time, post surgery), it felt great! Forgot I was wearing them. It didn't feel like I had braces on AND the shoes. It felt like I had one piece on either foot. I had surgery on both of my achilles just over a year ago...I was worried these might rub the back of my ankles, but they didn't. If you've been thinking about getting them...get them. They are extremely light...and as we all know..lighter makes you faster and......FAST DON'T LIE!! lol I'll be putting the same review for both sides, left, right.
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!
I have had 2 pairs. The first pair I put 450 miles on them. I've run in the in just about every weather condition this winter and they held up great. On my second pair I've just ran a full marathon. I will have to agree when I first got the shoe. I thought the construction might fall apart but after all the miles on them and also being wet a good amount of the time. I would recommend these shoes to everyone that has the right foot type.
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!
