    Anyone know what kind of ankle braces Roddick wears. A bunch of men on the tour wear the same ones.

    ASO ankle brace

    Andy Roddick wears the ASO ankle brace. You could see the logo clearly on a recent cover of tennis magazine. Go to: asoanklebrace.com

    Do any other tennis professionals wear the ASO brand?

    to help keep you from rolling your ankle when you have quick change of directions. more stability.

    Yeh thats exactly what i want them for, to stop my ankles rolling. Its happened to me a few times. Just wanted to prevent this from happening.


    Confirm he 100% uses the aso braces. Not sure about hewitt though.

    Got an email back from Mike of Achillesmed.com on their product line.

    It looks like I'll get the original vs. the one with the plastic stays.

    * ASO original is their most popular model.

    * Speed Lacer is the least supportive, so it is not recommended for active sports like tennis.

    * ASO Max is designed so that you can wear it without socks, which certainly wouldn't be recommended for tennis players.

    * ASO with stays are recommended for those who already have severely sprained ankles and are trying to treat a recent injury.

    Thanks,
    eagle

    I use the same braces as roddick. Theyre called ASO Ankle Stabilizers. Theres another thread somewhere in the shoes section with more details on how to get them online
