Ankle Brace

I take martial arts and part of our training is running. I have sprained my
right ankle twice previously, once ice skating the other playing tennis. I
just recently (Saturday) sprained my left ankle running. I have been
looking at several ankle braces to help while I am recovering from my sprain
and also help prevent future injury. I would like to know if you could
recommend an ankle brace that can go from running outside in my running
shoes to barefoot on the mat in the dojo and offers protection and allows
movement. The ankle braces I have been looking at are:

Aircast A60 Stirrup Brace or Aircast Sport Stirrup
Bauerfeind-Zeuba Vital Ankle Brace
Bauerfeind-Malleo Train Ankle Brace

I know that strengthening the muscles in my ankles are the best form of
prevention and I have exercises that I am doing to do this. I would like to
wear an ankle brace in the mean time.

Thank you,

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
