    Sprained ankle brace

    So I screwed up my ankle by miss stepping off my brew stand. Now the doc said that I've gotta wear this big ass brace for at least 2 weeks.
    Wondering if anyone knows of a good "over boot" or something to keep it dry while I'm at work.Name:  1558210305904955898262.jpg

    Instead of a crutch, take a look at iWalk 2.0

    I used it after Achilles tendon surgery.

    That looks nice but I think I'm too spastic for that. Plus climbing stairs seams if-y to me.
    What I'm really looking for is some kind of slip over water proof cover, preferably with some tread on the bottom.

    If the foam liner is removable, take it out, put the liner on your foot and put a large, heavy-duty garbage bag over the liner then put the brace on. The brace will get grungy, but your foot and the liner will be protected. The brace should protect the garbage bag from damage and you'll still have the tread on the brace.

    Get better soon--don't push it or it'll just take longer.

    That's a clever idea timm! I'll give it a try.
    Thanks!
