What you need
3 TRUETAPE strips
Sit down on the floor or a chair and bend your leg.
Tear the paper backing in the middle and peel it back. Apply the tape with 75% stretch to the out- and frontside of your ankle.
Pull your foot towards the shin and wrap the back end of the tape around your Achilles without stretch.
Apply the front end of the tape without stretch towards the heel.
Apply the anchor of the second strip without stretch just above the outside of your ankle.
Tape with 50% stretch over the outside of the ankle, curve around the bottom of your foot...
...and further upwards over the inside of your ankle.
Apply the end of the tape without stretch just above the first strip at the inside of your ankle.
Apply the anchor without stretch just ahead of the other strip on the outside of your foot.
Pull your foot towards the shin again and apply the tape with 50% stretch just below the outside of your ankle.
Further curve around your Achilles and the inside of your ankle with 50% stretch.
Apply the last bit of tape without stretch to the inside of your foot.
Make sure to give the whole application another good rub to activate the adhesive. Congrats, that's it.
