Darco Softie Post-Operative Shoe

After surgery or serious injury to the feet, it's vital that adequate protection is used to guard against reaggravation or injury. The Darco Softie Post-Operative Shoe is an economical post-operative shoe designed for soft tissue trauma or surgery. Lightweight and comfortable, this shoe is a cost-effective alternative to premium products that still provides great levels of rigidity and forefoot control.

What's Included?

  • 1 x Darco Post Operative Shoe

How Do I Apply the Darco Boot?

When injuries are involved, it's vital you take good care to apply any rehabilitative wear carefully. Please follow the instructions below to make sure your Darco Rehabilitation Shoe fits perfectly:

  1. Measure the dimensions of your foot carefully against the sizing chart below
  2. Once you receive the correct size, loosen both sets of straps completely
  3. Carefully place your foot inside the shoe until the entire insole is covered
  4. Gently tighten the bottom strap that runs across the bottom of the foot
  5. Finally, slowly tighten the second strap until the shoe fits comfortably

Sizing for the Darco Softie Shoe

The Darco Softie Post Operative Shoe is available in a range of different sizes that should suit most adults. To find your best size, simply match your shoe size to the table below. To make finding the perfect size boot for your foot easier, we recommend measuring the length and width of the sole of your shoe at the longest and widest point, as demonstrated in the image below.

Who Can Benefit from the Softie Post-Operative Shoe?

Designed for use after a foot operation, the Darco Softie Shoe provides you with rigidity and control of the forefoot. This helps with conditions that have been operated on like:

  • Hallux Valgus
  • Bone fractures that have healed crookedly
  • Bunions
  • Metatarsal surgery

Features and Benefits of the Darco Softie Shoe

  • Easy to fasten hook-and-loop straps
  • The patented semi-rigid metatarsal shank provides control of the forefoot motion
  • Provides excellent protection after osteotomies
  • Protects sensitive areas of the metatarsal heads after surgery
  • Tissue-friendly upper material conforms to any bony abnormalities and is also breathable
  • Can be easily fastened and loosened with one hand

Tri-Laminated Upper

The Darco Softie's very soft, breathable upper is made of a poly-cotton blend that conforms to the bony contours of your foot. This allows you to remain comfortable and cool even after extended periods of use.

Metatarsal Protection

A semi-rigid metatarsal shank permits enough flexibility for ambulation while providing superior control of forefoot motion to ensure that post-operative healing is not disturbed. This makes for superior protection after osteotomies.

Sizing for the Darco Softie Shoe

The Darco Softie Shoe is sold as a single item and is available in women's and men's sizes. Please consult the sizing chart below and select the option you require from the drop-down menu.

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 am happy with my purchase but disappointed the second item was unavailable but will order from elsewhere as delivery on this item is too long. The product is excellent, well packed and delivery times were ok.
