What do knitted ankle supports do? And when would you use them?

I have a hard time getting what ankle supports do, it’s like a sock, so what makes it so special, what does it do, is it for people with sore ankles and feet from running?

    As with any support garment, they support an injured or stressed area to help keep it stable and reduce chances for injury or further injury. They are often quite snug also, like a compression garment, to keep blood from settling in that area.

    Anyone might use ankle support whether it's due to doing a lot of walking, running, any kind of high impact activity, or just because they have weak ankles from age, injury, or lack of fitness.
