Being the most popular sport in the world, soccer players quite literally run themselves into countless amounts of injuries. From ankle sprains to hamstring pulls and everything in-between, soccer players need to be protected. We know injuries in soccer are as common as Lionel Messi scoring a goal, and that’s why we’ve got your back. BraceAbility offers a wide range of top quality ankle braces, knee braces, shin supports and compression sleeves for soccer players worldwide.
Soccer Ankle Brace for Injury Treatment
One of BraceAbility’s most popular soccer ankle braces is the figure-8 lace-up ankle brace. This soccer brace offers figure-8 support straps and removable medial/lateral stays. The enhanced support relieves pain from chronic ankle instability, sprain or strains and protects against inversion and eversion ankle injuries. Made to withstand even the most active soccer player, this brace is constructed of durable black tricot material and features removable plastic stays. Stabilizing straps are also available for maximum support and comfort.
Oftentimes soccer shin guards do not sufficiently cover a player’s the whole leg of the player thus leaving the ankle exposed to the opponents’ cleats. This ankle guard protection was specifically designed with a low-profile silhouette for soccer cleats and covers the ankle in its entirety. With its quick-release hook-and-loop closure, this guard fits easily on a variety of foot sizes.
Ankle sprains are amongst the most common soccer injuries due to the incredible amount of running and kicking the athletes partake in. Forceful kicking and or rolling of the ankle cause ligaments in the ankle to stretch and potentially tear, causing pain and instability.
Soccer Knee Braces for Injury Treatment

Most Common Soccer Injuries
Soccer Compression Sleeves & Protective Gear
Because soccer players put excessive stress on their legs, it is very common for athletes to suffer from medial tibial stress syndrome, or in layman’s terms, shin splints. Running too much on hard surfaces is the main reason this injury occur and unfortunately for soccer players, running on hard surfaces is often unavoidable.
Fortunately, BraceAbility carries a variety of soccer calf sleeves that help prevent and recover from shin splints. One of the best options for recovering from shin splints would be our neoprene calf sleeve. This brace provides superior compression, heat retention, and support to aid in the treatment of shin splints or muscles strains in the lower leg.

Soccer Knee & Ankle Supports for Game Time
BraceAbility also stocks soccer ankle braces and knee braces that are geared toward more active use and perfect to wear during a game. One of the best ankle braces in stock is the neoprene ankle wrap. A great alternative to a traditional ankle tape, it is a stretchable elastic ankle support wrap and brace that not only provides you with superb security for your ankle while exercising but can also help in preventing further ankle injury even while you engage in vigorous sports activities.
Due to the mass amounts of running and kicking that takes place in a soccer match, often times athletes will end up hurting their knees. The patella (kneecap) in particular is a vulnerable spot on soccer player’s bodies. To further prevent the kneecap from sliding out of place and becoming injured, a kneecap stabilizer brace is necessary.
