(How) Do I wear my ankle brace with socks/shoes?

I recently sprained my ankle really badly (Grade 2 sprain). So right now I can't put any weight on it.

The doctor gave me these braces.

When I go out of the house, am I supposed to wear socks/shoes with it?

He said in a week/2 weeks I can start putting weight on it. If I can't fit shoes with it on, how do I put weight on it?

    If you have some faded jeans, consider splitting the cuff of the pants to try and hide the brace and maybe split the socks to cover as much brace as possible. This may be a good time to purchase a walking cane to help you walk. A walking cane can last for years. I had hearing-loss in my right ear and had balance-loss and could not walk a straight line. This operation was 10 years ago, and I have needed the walking cane only once, but I know it will always be available when next needed.
