HOW TO APPLY:
Place the rigid shells on the medial and lateral sides of the ankle. The heel width is easily adjusted and the brace is applied with two adjustable hook and loop straps. While squeezing side panels together, wrap the lower then the upper strap and fasten with hook and loop closures. Once both straps are fastened, readjust the lower then upper strap to ensure a proper fit. Fit should be snug but not so tight it pinches or constricts circulation. Wear over socks and with an athletic shoe.
Sheartex® liners are easily removed and can be machine washed in cold water with mild soap. Do not bleach. Air dry away from heat. Do not tumble dry. Wipe shells with damp cloth.
