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
- 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
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.
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.
