Lymphedema Products offers a variety of specialty footwear items, including the A.P.B. Hi All-Purpose Boot, the Softie Shoe, Body Armor Shoe, and Classic Post Op Shoe, all by surgical shoe maker, Darco. Designed to fit either the left or right foot, the Hi All-Purpose Boot is good for closed-toe protection in all types of weather. A high-top design with ankle strap eliminates heel slippage, and provides the extra support needed to help prevent weak ankles from twisting. A generous opening provides ample room to accommodate dressings, bandages, compression wear and/or fiberglass casts.
The Softie Shoe is a classic post-op shoe with plenty of room for dressings or most fiberglass casts. Adjustable, high quality hook and loop fastener straps ensure a snug, slippage-free fit. Designed to accommodate either foot, this shoe is comfortable and a snap to slip on and off. In fact, ease of use is one of most frequently mentioned benefits of this versatile shoe.
The Body Armor Shoe is one of the most sophisticated shoes available for the protection of a bandaged or cast-wrapped foot. Made of soft, yet durable thermoplastic rubber (TPR), the Body Armor Shoe lives up to its name by protecting the foot in all the right places, while allowing for plenty of comfort and ease of use. Unlike other shoes, this surgical footwear features adjustable bungee-like shock cord closures to help keep your recovering foot snug and safe, without undue constriction.
Finally, the Darco Classic Post-Op shoe is just that: a modern classic. Semi-rigid, with a reinforced heel and padded collar, this shoe features a soft, breathable nylon mesh upper with hook and loop closures for snug, yet comfortable, fit. A flared TPR heel provides enhanced lateral stability.
