This brace is an excellent option for those recovering from a sports injury like myself. Similar items at The Sports Authority and Dicks Sporting Goods are priced $2-5 higher and are only lace up whereas this one has three excellent velcro strap supports. Size is true. I am a size 7 in dress shoes and an XS fit perfect. However, it will cause your athletic shoe to be laced more loosely as it takes up considerable space. I was wearing a size 10 basketball shoe beforehand (which probably led to spraining my ankle in the first place) and now the brace fills it up very comfortably. One concern of mine was that the brace was hard to slip onto your foot right out of the box. In fact, if you didn't have it unlaced all the way, it was nearly impossible. This only took me one application to figure out, however, you MUST unlace the product all the way (nearly out of the holes) each and every time you wear due to the unique L-shaped design. it because the smallest opening is designed to fit into the smallest part of your foot, which is right in front of the ball of your foot. This design was worth the extra three minutes, grunting, huffing and puffing to get the brace on because once it was on, it fit like a glove. The highest velcro strap with the logo may irritate your leg every now and then if you are using this for basketball.
