Body Shield Ankle Sleeve Product Review

body-shieldThe Body Shield Ankle Sleeve, manufactured by Core, provides a combination of ankle support and breathable comfort for the wearer.

Body Shield Ankle Sleeve Product Features



This orthopedic support device includes the following features:

  • The support itself is constructed of a patented flexible foam fabric known as Breathe O Prene. The foam is firm enough to provide substantial support for the ankle joint, but also permeable enough to allow for air circulation and evaporation of dampness.
  • The front section of the ankle sleeve can be adjusted in order to customize the fit within the parameters of each size measurement. A simple Velcro mechanism enables the wearer to snug down the orthopedic support sleeve for the perfect fit.
  • The Body Shield Ankle Sleeve brace is available in three sizes: a small to medium (for people whose ankles measure eight and a half to ten inches in diameter), large (for people whose ankles measure ten to eleven inches in diameter), and extra large (for people whose ankles measure eleven to twelve inches in diameter). Taking a proper measurement and ordering the correct size ensures an accurate fit.

What Buyers Like About the Body Shield Ankle Sleeve

Buyers enjoy these features of the orthopedic support:

The Breathe O Prene fabric of the ankle sleeve allows for air flow around the wrapped ankle, increasing the comfort for the wearer as well as boosting the ability of the tissue to circulate blood and oxygen for more rapid healing. In cases where swelling and bruising are evident, the enhanced circulation minimizes those effects.

The breathability is especially a relief for people who find perspiration and dampness against the skin irritating. Because air can continue to flow around the encased area, the ankle does not get damp and sweaty or retain heat.

Because the ankle sleeve is slim in its outline, it easily fits within a tightly tied athletic shoe, and can be worn with any type of shoe for any type of activity.

This sleeve provides a firmer form of support than a simple fabric wrap, stabilizing any ankle that is recovering from an injury of the soft tissue like a sprain or strain.

What Buyers Don’t Like About the Body Shield Ankle Sleeve

Many first time users express skepticism regarding the breathability of the foam. Having experience with less permeable fabrics, like older style neoprenes (used in the construction of water tight wetsuits, for example), causes them to regard any similar looking fabric as a moisture trap. They quickly discover, however, that even when they engage in fairly strenuous activity, or wear the ankle sleeve on a hot and humid day, that the sleeve itself wicks away moisture and heat rather than compounding the problem of perspiration and dampness. In fact, they often wish their athletic socks did as good a job of wicking away moisture and keeping them dry and comfortable.
