Is that a bandage or a tape the wrap around their hands and ankles?
Where do I get it?

Yeah, I'm pretty sure you're talking about handwraps, etc.
You can get them at karatedepot.com or any store that sells weight training/boxing equiptment... and, hey, I got my handwraps at Wal*Mart, just look wherever you see punching bags and gloves.

O.k, yes they are hand wraps, but not ankle supports.
Is there another wrap for the feet?

You can do it with wraps, or gauze and sports tape.

There are ankle supports you can get, or you can use sports tape.

Boxers wear shoes.

Most boxers use gauze and sports tape. Hand wraps can come loose or shift too easily. Hand wraps are generally only used for bag work in the gym.

Go to ringside.com and check it out they have loads of equipment. They are headquartered not far from where I live and I have used a lot of their stuff.
