Darco Relief Dual Off-Loading Shoe

You can feel at your most vulnerable after a foot operation, especially if you aren't using a support to move around. The Darco Relief Off-Loading Shoe provides a balance of stability and pressure reduction on the foot following surgery. It absorbs shock and off-loads weight to effectively assist with post-operative treatment.

Who Can Benefit from the Dual Off-Loading Shoe?

Wearing off-loading shoes can help aid the healing process after a foot operation. As the wide opening of the shoe can accommodate bulkier dressings, it is also practical following surgery where the foot needs to be bound in dressings. This helps to ensure the foot can remain as supported as possible while the affected area heals.

Conditions that the shoe can help with include:

  • Hallux valgus
  • Bone fractures that have healed crookedly
  • Diabetic ulcers

Key Features of the Darco Relief Dual Off-Loading Shoe

  • Provides a balance of stability and pressure reduction following foot operations
  • Ideal for wearing after osteotomy procedures to treat conditions (e.g. hallux valgus)
  • Dual sole combines EVA shock absorption with anti-slip features of rubber
  • Rigid shank across the entire sole area to maximise pressure redistribution
  • Immobilises first and fifth metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joints and first and fifth distal interphalangeal (DIP) joints
  • Compatible with a range of insoles for more bespoke and enhanced care
  • Lightweight breathable upper with an easy entry and sole access
  • Wide opening to accommodate bulkier dressings

How Does It Work?

A dual sole provides optimal support, featuring EVA shock absorption alongside an anti-slip feature. Any pressure placed underfoot can be distributed away from the painful area to minimise the risk of further damage during healing.

The shoe also features a rigid shank across the entire sole area to maximise the pressure redistribution. This immobilises the first and fifth MTP and DIP joints for optimum support. With a breathable upper section and an ease of application, the shoe offers comfortable and reliable shock absorption and pressure distribution.

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.
