Bottom Line – Should you buy the Ankle Genie?
With numbers consumer reviews on the Ankle Genie, the most common complaint is that one size does not fit all, no comfortability, and the zipper tends to break rather quickly. Also, it's important to note, that chances are that the Ankle Genie would not be a permanent solution for your swollen ankles as it is an As Seen on TV Product and those tend to provide little to no result versus what you may have expected initially. If you are suffering from tensions and swollen ankles, it is recommended that you speak with a family doctor and see if this is a good remedy for you.
However, the Ankle Genie is not an overly expensive item so if you suffer from sore, swollen ankles and feet and you think it’s worth the risk for the price, you may find this product to your liking.
