    pros and cons of both....with normal shoe size it might put some extra pressure on your ankle.....with bigger shoe...u might get other foot problems while wearing larger shoes....i always thought taping my ankles made me feel better than a brace....cuz its thin...does the job

    How can you use an athletic tape for taping ankles. Athletic tapes are used for taping up blisters and cuts on hands. You use ace bandages to wrap ankles or might be something else, but I'm sure that you do not use athletic tape for ankles.

    I usually use crepe bandage if needed and use the same shoes because I lace it slightly looser to accomodate the bandage/ankle brace.
