The Best Shoes to Wear with the Ultra High-5
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 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.
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.
