The Best Shoes to Wear with the Ultra CTS
Recommended: Low-top sneakers that have a traditional tongue and laces where you can loosen the laces enough to fit the brace in the shoe.
Not Recommended: Sneakers that have a sleeve or collar design that limit the opening of the shoe. Due to their limiting design, it is very difficult to insert any ankle braces in these shoes.
Not Recommended: Tall boots or sandals.

Although your new ankle braces will fit either ankle when you get them, make sure to mark them ‚Äúright‚Äù or ‚Äúleft‚Äù on the white tab on the upper strap and wear them on the same ankle each time. Since the ankle braces will form fit to your ankle, they will become specific to one foot after you break them in.
Your ankle brace size is different from your shoe size because it‚Äôs based on your ankle circumference. View our size chart for instructions on measuring your ankle circumference. You‚Äôll use that measurement to figure out which size brace will provide the best fit. The Ultra Zoom will not fit a shoe size smaller than a women‚Äôs size 6 or a men‚Äôs size 7.
To Determine if you Need an X-Long Activity Strap on Your S/M Ultra Zoom:
Find your medial ankle bone. It‚Äôs the one you can feel protruding from the inside of your ankle. Then, measure the circumference of your lower leg from a point two inches above your medial ankle bone. If the circumference you measured is 11 inches or greater, add on an X-Long Upper Activity Strap for a better fit and greater comfort when you wear your brace.
Measure around your ankle with a tape measure as shown in the photo and then reference the size chart to the right. If your ankle is measuring right at 14‚Ä≥ then we would recommend going with the smaller size and ordering an X-Long Upper Activity Strap if needed.

REDUCE WEIGHT BEARING PAIN
Lessen weight bearing pain caused by an acute ankle injury or a condition such as osteoarthritis by reducing the impact on your joint. The Ultra CTS is the only ankle brace that helps lower pain by absorbing some of the painful impact normally transferred to your ankle joint. With less pain you‚Äôre able to focus on increasing your activity and shorten your recovery time.
TRANSITION FROM A WALKING BOOT
The Ultra CTS is used extensively by physicians and sports medicine professionals with patients when they transition from a walking boot to active rehabilitation because it provides a full, natural range of motion and helps you regain flexibility and strength.
CUSTOM TREATMENT SYSTEM
The Ultra CTS is considered a custom treatment system because it transitions with you during your recovery from an acute ankle injury. Detach the upper cuff portion of your brace to transform it into a low-profile activity brace once you‚Äôre ready for increased mobility. This ensures your investment lasts through every stage of your rehab, protecting you from the sidelines to the starting lineup.
