I use the protec ankle guard from danscomp, seems legit. Braces are for injuries so know exactly what you need before you buy.

High tops do long as they are actually laced and tied decent. Helps keep your crank arm from biting your ankle as well.
I was going to ride a brace but they were back ordered when I tried getting one so I wrapped my ankle/ foot with a tensor bandage for awhile fairly snug, not enough to cut circulation though. It helped quite a bit.

I've used the protec ankle brace when my ankles where really fucked up. These added with high/mid top shoes that you actually do the laces up on and not just slip your feet into where what kept me riding.

I also did ankle strengthing excercise and I can happily ride braceless now


I'm a punk bmxer, I can't do it well so I do it loud.

I either wear high tops with one ankle brace,

Or I usually wear low tops and two ankle braces, a compression and a much stiffer one. I can't even ride without them now.
Makes me look like a crack/coke dealer tho cuz I have to roll up my left pant leg to stop it rubbing the compression brace down my leg
