Modern Design. More Comfort.
Thrive’s Mach8 Ankle Brace completely changes the game! Every single aspect of the Mach8 Figure 8 Ankle Brace was meticulously engineered to offer more support and superior comfort. The torch has been passed; as an upgrade and more modern version of the ASO top-selling brace for 20+ years, the Mach8 is the number one lace-up ankle brace on the market today!
With advanced premium features including internal padding and cushion for support, while maintaining and even improving all the original features of the ASO brace, it's no wonder this brace is now the #1 brace on the market!
The Mach8 takes concepts from traditional figure 8 ankle braces and enhances them to bring them into the next generation. Our ballistic nylon shell coupled with our moisture-wicking, low-profile internal padding make the Mach8 more durable and comfortable. Our ergonomic, padded tongue and easy-grip elastic closure lock you in and keep you secure. If you want next generation performance, the only choice is Thrive.

I used this brace hiking on uneven terrain. It provided me with great stability both medial and lateral. It is comfortable and easy to use. I would definitely recommend this brace for anyone looking for extra stability and support.
Great looking brace that gets me through long bike rides and workouts. Love the support and look compared to competitor braces. No pain at all after hard exercise.
I've used ankle braces my whole life when playing basketball for chronic sprains. This brace is like the MedSpec ASO Ankle Brace on steroids! It's more sturdy, has added padding, and a design that is modern and not from the 1980's. I would highly recommend!
A few months ago my mother was having some issues with one of her feet. She is overall healthy, active, runs regularly, and is on her feet most of the day working on flip houses, and has never had an issue with her feet before. This issue caused her so much pain that she wasn’t even able to stand or walk for any prolonged period of time, even for a simple task such as going to the grocery store. She went to a local podiatrist who was unable to pinpoint the exact issue without further scans, so he suggested stabilizing it to see if there was any improvement and put off the MRI. The podiatrist told her she could wear an AFO or an ankle brace (specifically a lace up brace, not a quick lace) and I was able to get her set up with your Mach8 ankle brace. The Mach8 helped her instantaneously. She could walk, stand, and move without pain again.
She was able to get to a point where she only wears the brace when she is doing something strenuous and I had completely forgotten about the brace as time passed, until we ran a 5k together on Thanksgiving and she showed up sporting her Thrive ankle brace. She was able to run the whole race with nothing more than the typical soreness afterwards and no issues from her foot, something she wouldn’t have been able to do without the brace. Every time she runs she wears the Mach8 and has had no issues with the quality or usability and seems very content with the fit, even as someone who has never had to wear any sort of ankle brace before.
