i can't believe i sprained my ankle again, hardly wallked today

maybe the new balance shoes, the heel cushion, the spencos are a bad combo for ankles? does the tuli go on top of the spenco. got a suggestion for footware that won'[t harm my ankles?

Just curious did you have any type of fascia release surgery before the sprains began. Can't remember your last posting.

They are not a bad combination for the ankle unless to have a varus calcanious. If you do the combination acting as a heel lift makes your ankle unstabe. When looking for foot gear that helps support the ankle, the higher up the ankle the laces go the better, and remember to use the top lace holes.

I would wear either a air splint or an elastic support on the ankles at this time. Futuro ankle supports can be found in most drug stores
