ShapeShift Ankle Holster

$61.88
• Special streamlined design enhances concealability and allows you to carry with full size guns.
• Made up of two pieces that work together to provide support and prevent slipping or moving.
• Unique and durable materials are immediately ready to use—no break in time!

For those who sit for long periods every day, or would prefer to keep their waistline free, the ankle holster is the concealed carry option for you. Alien Gear Holsters has developed a breakthrough ankle holster design that rises above competitors.

Following suit of Alien Gears’ other award-winning holsters, the ShapeShift Ankle Holster focuses on comfort and security.

Made almost entirely of CoolVent™ neoprene and low profile hook and loop fasteners, this ankle holster is lightweight, requires zero break-in time, and hugs against the ankle for all-day comfort and concealment.

An upper and lower wrap work together to provide stability and security. The lower wrap hooks around the heel of the foot, and goes over the ankle where it locks into place with an adjustable elastic strap.*

The upper wrap has a premium engineered polymer spine, formed to mirror the shape of the carriers’ ankle. This piece hooks into the lower strap, locking the holster in place and preventing it from sliding down the ankle. The spine connects to a thermo elastomer piece, which supports the holster’s shell and allows for six ride height levels.

The ShapeShift Ankle Holster’s unique design removes the need for a calf strap or garter, and will keep the holster from moving around or sliding down.

Every ShapeShift holster’s shell is injection-molded, fitting your firearm perfectly without any bulk or excess material. This enhances concealability and allows for a new type of retention that locks your firearm into the ankle holster with unquestionable security.

This adjustable, ultra-secure retention sets the ShapeShift Ankle Holster above other ankle holsters; Its open-mouth design makes for the fastest unobstructed draw.
While most ankle holsters can only support compact or smaller handguns, we are proud to say you can carry your full size gun with the ShapeShift Ankle Holster.*

Enjoy compatibility with a wide range of OWB, IWB and tactical holsters with the ShapeShift Modular Holster System. Shift quickly and easily from the Ankle Holster to the Paddle Holster or Molle Holster, dependent on your need.

The Shapeshift Ankle Holster is backed with a Forever Warranty. Try this American-made holster now with our 30-Day Test Drive.

*We recommend wearing this holster over mid-length socks for extra comfort. However, if you choose not to, the holster is lined with perforated CoolVent™ neoprene, which utilizes moisture-wicking technology.

Fits great and very comfortable Review by Ronnie

I have to wear a backup ankle weapon for work. I have 2 different holsters that I would switch between depending on the footwear I was wearing that day. I have skinny calves, and I would have to put an Ace wrap on my ankle before putting the holster(s) on to keep them from flopping around and moving down on my ankle bone. I saw this holster, and for the price, 30 day trial, and forever warranty, what have I got to lose? It came in, I put my backup weapon (Glock 27) in it and strapped it on. It is extremely comfortable, doesn't flop around, and it doesn't slide down. It has a support stem on it that keeps it from sliding down. I thought that part would be uncomfortable, but I can barely feel it, and it is still comfortable. I work a minimum of 8 hours a day, some days walking all day, some days sitting behind a computer all day (kinda like I'm doing now), and it doesn't move. Excellent holster! I will get this holster for any/every other gun I have to wear on my ankle. (Posted on 9/7/2018)
Best ankle holster I've ever worn Review by Jesse
Quality

I purchased the shape shift holster for my P238 and have worn it nearly everyday since getting it (about a month).

The Good:
-Great quality material
-Comfortable
-No break in time
-One size so no need to adjust any straps
-Very secure and the retention is adjustable
*Once you put the gun & holster on, IT DOESN'T MOVE

The Middle:
-A bit tricky getting everything adjusted. I used a YouTube video, which happened to be more useful than the written instructions that was provided. This is not a negative towards AlienGear. It could have been merely operator error on my part.
-I have noticed a little/mild rubbing of my ankle from the spine that is affixed to the heel strap. But is has not caused any abrasions or actual soreness.

The Negative:
-Cost could be a negative for some, initially. However, once you see the product and give it a try, it's worth it.
-I wear Keens, which are high tops. I have noticed chafing on top of my shoe. Its from the skeleton portion of the holster that rubs. Personally, I don't care because my pants cover the top of the shoe, however I thought it was noteworthy.

Overall, an excellent product, and very comfortable. Well worth the investment.

Best one yet...and I highly recommend Review by ronniedavis573

I work in Law Enforcement/Public Service, and am required to carry a primary firearm during business hours, and I choose to carry a backup weapon in an ankle holster. Due to my "chicken legs" as my wife calls them, depending on the type of foot wear I'm wearing for the day, I have 2 different holsters that I use. Both of them require me to put an Ace bandage around my calf to give it a little more girth so the holster will secure. I saw this one and figured what have I got to lose? 30 day trial run, plus a lifetime warranty? I received it in the mail yesterday and immediately set it up. This holster is amazing! It fits without having to use an Ace wrap! Ha! It has the built in retention, and an optional thumb release. I tried it both ways and found it is more convenient to use the built in retention. It is actually a comfortable holster, and does not flop around or slide down. I have to say that this was definitely the best $61.88 I have spent in a long time! (Posted on 8/21/2018)

oustanding value for NPE deep concealment as well as EDC Review by M.

Secure, comfortable, discreet. I've worn this (with a 3.3 XDS) almost every day for several months and it hasn't failed me yet, and I'm in a job where I'm continually on my feet, kneeling, walking, lifting, etc - often in very close proximity to others who haven't said or noticed a thing.

Instructions were pretty awful, I just sort of figured it out and was lucky I didn't break it in the process - in particular instructions (or better yet a video!) on how to remove/adjust the shell need to be improved.

Only had two minor issues. First, ankle pocket ripped out 2nd day. Aliengear immediately mailed me a replacement (I repaired the original with a heavy duty needle and nylon thread because I already didn't want to go a day without it, but I'm very happy to have a spare).

Second, I have to run a finger along the muzzle-end portion of the holster backing to make sure the seam doesn't accidentally tuck underneath - if it does the holster gets uncomfortable pretty quickly. Been doing that as I put it on for about a month and so far no further wear or problems. Might be something to address in the MK II.

Velcro holds up great so far. Just washed the whole thing in soapy dishwater and it dried in less than a day - very easy to clean.

Wish there was more Shapeshift Beretta compatibility (especially for leg-drop).

I recommend a quality neoprene/velcro dual-mag carrier on the other ankle just to balance the weight out. Surprised Aliengear doesn't make one.

Aliengear gets it right. (Posted on 7/16/2018)
Ingenious Review by Pete

Probably the best idea since the tacos! The folks at Alien Gear just keep on coming up with bold and new ideas for freedom lovers. This latest spin on the ankle holster is great. No longer does my secondary weapon slip and dangle during inopportune times or at the moment of truth. In the middle of the day my toes no longer tingle and I don't lose feeling in my foot from over tightened calf straps. Keep innovating and I'll keep buying Alien Gear! (Posted on 7/8/2018)

This holster works pretty well with my skinny legs. Not a problem keeping it in place. It would be better if the was some padding over the shin and ankle bones. All day carry leaves a couple of sore spots. (Posted on 6/29/2018)

I wanted an ankle holster forever. Couldn't wait for this to come out. I carry a 9mm shield and forget its even there. All my holsters are Alien Gear. I love everyone of them. Great company! (Posted on 6/8/2018)
