    I have pain in ankles after every sport, so I use basketball shoes for all sports (except cycling). I look for Prince viper IV mid, but can not find it. Can I try low cut tennis shoes with ankle brace?
    Is this more safe for ankles?

    I wear lows with the McDavid ankle brace. No problems at all.

    an ankle brace is more sensible, your more succeptable to injury with basketball shoes seeing as most basketball players wear ankle braces with their humongous shoes. ankle braces were made for just this purpose.

    *wisdom nugget* don't go for one of the more expensive ones, the most effective IMO are the lace up ones you can get at academy/sports authority for about 10 bucks.


    Hope you find something that works.
