First of all it actually fits on my huge knee ! I got the largest one.
2nd, it stays on and doesn't slide around.
3rd, it didn't make my leg all sweaty.
4th my knee felt more stable.
Harder to get off than get on.
I injured my ankle walking down steps in my house. I missed one and lost my balance. Although I didn't fall down the next morning my ankle was swollen and I was in a LOT of pain. The emergency room wrapped it and gave me ice and a cane! Since then I have had intermittent issues with the ankle primarily when it isn't supported while I exercise or walk for great distances. This brace provides a GOOD DEAL of support and unlike the over the counter products it is STURDY and RELIABLE. It DOES NOT SLIP and the velcro closures are extremely DEPENDABLE. I have worn this brace with sneakers and heels although I cannot wear it with boots.
This brace is not a substitute for your doctors review or recommendations. Once I got over the fear that the doctor was going to recommend surgery I realized that this was a poor substitute for addressing the issue although it did give me temporary relief from my ankle situation.
