Darco MedSurg Original Healing Shoe

Once you've undergone an operation on your foot, it's imperative that you support the area so it can heal properly. The Darco MedSurg Original Healing Shoe is an industry-standard healing shoe ideal for wearing after an operation to provide both stability and relief from impact and pressure.

The MedSurg Shoe is supplied as a single rather than a pair, and features a ambidextrous design that can be used on either foot.

Who Can Benefit from the MedSurg Original Healing Shoe?

The MedSurg Original Healing Shoe is a trusted shoe for wearing on the foot following surgery. After the foot has undergone a procedure, it will require time to heal and any knocks or incidents around the foot could hinder or prevent this. The Healing Shoe will protect and support the foot during this time. The shoe can be used for a number of applications, including:

  • Hallux valgus
  • Fractured bone that has healed crookedly

Features and Benefits of the MedSurg Original Shoe

  • Metatarsal shank provides superior control of forefoot motion
  • Ensures post-operative healing remains undisturbed
  • Provides better protection after osteotomies
  • Reinforced padded heel grips foot and reduces slippage
  • Breathable mesh upper lightweight material for proper ventilation
  • Mesh conforms to bony abnormalities
  • Extra long straps accommodate bulky dressings
  • Available in a number of different sizes
  • Now known as the industry standard

Reliable Design

In the medical environment, the Darco MedSurg has been synonymous with trust and reliability for decades. This MedSurg Original Healing Shoe has been designed to provide optimal support for the wearer. It features a rounded sole with a breathable mesh upper material. This means air can flow through the shoe to increase both hygiene and comfort.

The patented metatarsal shank provides superior control of forefoot motion, while the reinforced padded heel grips the foot and helps reduce slippage for improved safety. Versatile in its use, the extra-long straps can accommodate bulky dressings on the foot, making it ideal for most post-operative healing.

Our Guide to Finding the Perfect Size and Fit

Using Your Shoe Size

For most of our insoles, the easiest way to find the best size for you is to go off of your current shoe size. The majority of our insoles are available in a range of sizes and you can simply select the size that best fits your existing shoes.

Please be aware that, as with shoes, there can be slight variations in the size of insoles. For example a size 8 of one brand might not be exactly the same size and width as the size 8 of another. To help account for these discrepancies, a number of our insoles include dimensions to help you ensure you're getting the right size.

Measuring Your Current Insoles

While using your shoe size to find your best size is a good guide, it is not always foolproof. If you want to guarantee that your insole fit your shoes as closely as possible, we recommend measuring your existing insole and using this as a guide to your size.

To do this, please follow the steps outlined below:

  1. Remove the existing insole from the shoes you wish to use your new insoles with (please note that not all insoles are removable)
  2. Measure the insoles at their longest and widest points (see the below diagram for an idea of where this will be
  3. Match the measurements to the dimensions of the insoles listed, and choose the size that best fits your results

How to measure your insoles

Where Can I Find the Dimensions?

The dimensions for insoles can be found on the "Product Details" tab (please see below) and are usually found in the sizing section of the listing, in a table. Please be aware that not all products currently have the dimensions listed.

Product Details Example
The dimensions of insoles can usually be found on the "Product Details" tab

What If There Are No Dimensions Listed?

If you do not see the dimensions listed on the Product Details tab, please fill in the form below and we will work to get the relevant information as quickly as possible. We will email you once we have the information that you have requested.


Trimming Your Insoles to Fit

To get the ultimate level of fit from your insoles, you can trim them to make a small adjustment. To trim your insoles, simply follow the steps below:

  1. Remove your existing insoles from your shoes
  2. Line up your existing and new insoles at the heel
  3. Trace the outline of the insoles against the new pair at the toe end (see the image below for an example)
  4. Carefully cut along the traced line
  5. Your insoles should now fit your shoes better

Trace the outline of your existing insoles
Carefully trace the outline of your insole

Please note that not all insoles are suitable for trimming. Most insoles are unsuitable for return once they have been trimmed to fit; we recommend bearing this in mind prior to trimming.

If you would like a more detailed guide to trimming your insoles, please read our full guide on How to Trim Your Insoles.

I bought two for my mother who is 92 has bunions and finds it hard to get shoes to fit and to put them on. These solve both problems. Great delivery service arrived promptly.
