Can't find any good reviews online. Basically I want to get these for prophylaxis against ankle sprains. The ASO has received a lot of positive reviews, but it's more than 2x the cost and I feel might restrict movement too much. I've only had mild sprains in the past, nothing major, which is another reason why I think ASO might be overkill.

Any thoughts on these "wraps"?

Overkill is better than you risking a severe ankle sprain or worse.....I just bought a ASO ankle brace and I go full out 110% on this and so far...no pain after a sprain that took 2 months to recover from....$$$ should not be a issue if you want to prevent injuries...it was not fun paying for medical bills and treatment, plus the bed rest drove me nuts....I was so bored outta my mind....something I vowed not to go through again.
Sorry for the rant....

Personally it doesn't look like these would do much. I've never been a fan of any ankle braces that I've tried so I just stick to good old fashioned ankle taping.
