Darco TwinShoe Balance Shoe (Black)

After foot surgery, most surgeons employ a post-operative shoe so you can become mobile as quickly as possible. The consequence of wearing such a shoe is a height discrepancy between the two legs which results in discomfort, imbalance and possible danger when walking. The Darco TwinShoe Balance Shoe (Black) lessens the height discrepancy and makes walking much easier and safer.

Who Can Benefit from the Balance Shoe?

If you're wearing a post-operative, wound care or off-loading shoe to protect your foot after an operation, this can create a disparity between the height of your legs which can make it difficult to walk properly. The shoe can be used to help:

  • Equalise your leg lengths
  • Hallux valgus
  • Bone fractures that have healed crookedly

Features and Benefits of the TwinShoe Balance Shoe

  • Can be worn with post-operative, wound care and off-loading shoes
  • Equalises leg lengths to prevent discomfort and imbalance
  • Prevents tilting of pelvis due to higher healing shoe sole
  • Ensures safe, ergonomically correct walking pattern
  • Sole height: 36mm
  • Has a removable insole
  • Can be worn on the left and right foot
  • Saves time applying and removing complicated height adjustments
  • Can simply be slipped on like any other shoe

Universal Left/Right Fit

Designed for a universal left/right fit, the Balance Shoe is versatile and can be used as and when you need it. Owing to its design, the shoe ensures a safe and ergonomically-correct walking pattern when worn together with healing and off-loading shoes.

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.

Height not matched.
Monday, 9 August 2021  |  Eve

I bought this shoe hoping to match the height of an Ossur Moonboot, used by the NHS to support broken bones.
Sadly it did not match and I had to return it, losing almost 8 in postage.
This could have been avoided if I had been able to establish the height of the Moonboot. Unfortunately, though the height of the Darco shoe was given, that of the boot was not and impossible to find.
Apart from this, I found the slight curve on the heel combined with a pronounced curve on the Moonboot made me feel a little unstable.

Level/flat Shoe
Saturday, 18 July 2020  |  Bernard

The quality is very good and improved my general balance with the cut away one on my other foot after surgery. The only slight problem is that the very back of the heel section is also partly raised which along with my other medical problems causes me to be very careful about falling backwards as I have to use a walking stick all the time.
