Support The Ankle Joint
The comfort of the support around the ankle joint is provided by the round structure of the bamboo fibres which are non-irritating and don't crease when worn. The product helps to support and protect the joint and surrounding soft tissue during activity and exercise.
The unique composition and intricate weaving techniques used in the production of the knee support help apply a comfortable yet critical level of compression. The yarn also has a cross section filled with micro gaps which allows the fabric to breath and eliminate sweat build up during exercise use like running, all while continuing to provide you support while being worn.

How does the ankle support work?
Bearhug use bamboo charcoal in a unique composition within their Ankle supports. Bamboo charcoal supports have been scientifically proven to increase blood flow through the joint, foot and achilles tendon compared to ordinary supports.
This increased blood flow drives oxygenated blood to the ankle joint flushing out any toxins in the foot which helps your ligaments, tendons and soft tissue repair quicker while providing pain relief and reducing inflammation and swelling for activities like running and walking.

I’ve used these since having an Achilles injury . I find they give me piece of mind and great support through the ankle and Achilles
Great support for ankle
After tearing retinaculum I need support for my peroneal tendon. This has been fantastic
Thank you for your review Martin and welcome to the pack!
This is my second pair of Bearhug ankle sleeves. The previous ones wore thin on the ankle. That said, they lasted for nearly two years and over 1000 miles of running. Not bad.
Hi there, thank you for being a valued member of the pack! Hope we're supporting you for the next 1000 miles - happy running!
I have recently had issues with tibial tendinopathy and a chronic sprain in my ankle. I have eased myself back into running with the ankle supports. They give just enough support without being obtrusive and once in place fit nicely. I like the colourway too!
Thank you for your review, great to hear you're back running - Welcome to the pack!
Thought my footballing time was over. Too much damage done in the past. However, these give you the confidence to get stuck in again. Not a gimmick. Brilliant.
Glad you're back out there Andy - welcome to the pack!
