Air or Non-Air? Tall or Short? Which Boot is Right for Me?
Choosing the boot with the right features is essential in the healing process. There are several considerations to make, such as the location and type of injury, as well as severity. It is important to note that these walking boots are intended for minor injuries and should not be used in place of a hard cast for treating major injuries such as ligament damage or broken bones. For this reason, orthopedic walking boots are typically used as a transition between hard cast boots and no cast at all.
