Comfort During Recovery

The MaxTrax Walker is designed with a wider foot bed for comfort and stability. The low profile, rocker bottom helps promote natural gait and reduce plantar pressures. Cushioned inner and outer sole provides shock absorption to help improve patient comfort during ambulation.

The Maxtrax walker is recommended for use following stress fractures of the lower leg, soft tissue injuries (2nd and 3rd degree sprains), stable fractures and injuries of the foot and ankle, bunionectomies, and metatarsal fractures.

Features and Benefits

  • Wider footbed for increased stability
  • Swiveling D-rings allow for criss cross or parallel strapping
  • Cushioned inner/outer sole are designed to absorb shock upon heel strike
  • Breakdown uprights for short tibia/fibula
  • One-piece design keeps seams away from post surgical areas
  • Anterior/posterior and medial/ lateral shells for compression and support

DonJoy MaxTrax Walker reviews

5 stars
This walking brace did exactly what it promised. I had a stress fracture in my lower leg (tibia), and it hurt to walk let alone run. Crutches were a nightmare to use so I resorted to this walking brace, and it worked perfectly. It took all the pressure off of my leg while walking comfortably and allowed the injury to heal pain-free. I highly recommend this product. - 5 stars

  • From Courtney at 7/23/2014 5:46 PM
    • I recently received this brace from my doctor for a torn ligament in my foot. After only wearing the boot for 8 days the liner is already coming apart and the velcro will not stay shut. Can I buy a replacement liner for the boot?
    • Thank you for your question. You would first want to contact your physician to see about getting a replacement liner. The product has a 6 month warranty. If you are unable to get a replacement liner from your physician please call product support to help get a replacement sent out.
      If you are looking to have an extra liner we do have those available for purchase on our website. I have attached a link where you would be able to purchase this item.

    • I have just received a walking boot from my orthopedic specialist and the day I got it it didn't do this when using the crutches with it. now when I walk with it it makes like a clicking noise from both sides where the plastic thing with angles on it is. Is this a normal thing or should I go back and have them look at it.
    • Thank you for your questions. This product should not make any noises. I would suggest having your orthopedic take a look at it. If it is a malfunction in the product they should be able to replace it or you can call us directly if needed.
  • From Gerri at 5/13/2014 1:15 PM
    • I have used my boot for 2 weeks. There is a clicking noise coming from the left side of the boot where the bar attaches to the foot. Can I do something about this?
    • If it is damaged then you should take it back to where you recieved it and get it replaced. If you purchased it on-line call BetterBraces and let them know that you have a defective boot.
  • From Perry at 3/30/2014 4:06 PM
    • What is the highest patient weight limit that the MaxTrax boot is rated for?

  • From Byron at 1/21/2014 11:48 PM
    • My doctor has recommended the maxtrax walker boot, but I'm unsure if it is for lower tibia fractures. I would like to ensure I can use this boot for this specific fracture before making the purchase. I know he's the expert but I thought I'd make sure. thank you for all information regarding this question.
    • Thank you for your question. The DonJoy MaxTrax Walkers are often prescribed for post traumatic lower leg injuries, or surgery. It is not uncommon for this brace to be worn in situations like yours.
  • From Lori at 12/9/2013 8:31 PM
    • I have same question as Ken instruction for DonJoy maxtrax boot
    • a pdf of the instructions has been sent to your email. Tahnk you for your question.
  • From Lilly at 10/18/2013 6:28 PM
    • Hi, as I will be wearing this brace long term, is it possible to buy additional inserts?
      If so, what is the price of additional inserts?
      If not, is there a boot for a larger calf, chronic cartilage ankle injury that has extra inserts? I will be wearing this most days for a few years.
    • Lilly
      Thank you for contacting product support. There are replacement liners for the MaxTrax boot but they are not available on BetterBraces. You should get intouch with your local rep, they may be able to get them for you. If the liner of the boot that you are wear ing doesn't fit you could go up a size on the liner. Again you would need to contact your local rep for this.
  • From Kristin at 6/6/2013 9:22 PM
    • I was given one of your boots by my podiatrist on Monday because he believes that I have a stress fracture near my heel. I have incredibly small feet but, depending on shoe type, can wear anything from a 3.5 US in children's to a 6 in women's. I have noticed on the very back of my heel (the point of the calcaneus) I have a bright red pressure point sore (I suppose that's what it is called) that is very tender and feels bruised. Is this an issue of maybe the boot being a bit too large for me or is this an issue of maybe not having enough padding? if it is a padding issue what can you suggest that i use to prevent this from happening?

      Thank you
    • Hello Kristin,

      We have replacement liners, but since you just starting using the boot that shouldn't be the issue. How does the brace fit? Does it feel too big? A small accomodates size 4 1/2 - 6 in womens.

      Please call to speak to a Product Specialist, 1-888-405-3251.

    • I was fitted with a DonJoy MaxTrax Walking Boot at the Veterans Hospital on Friday, for a broken bone ion the outside of my left foot. However, I was not given the instructions for putting it on. So, after removing it for me to to shower, my wife and I do not know how to put it back on correctly, and I cannot find any instructions online to help us. Is there a site where I can get these instructions, or can someone scan their copy and email it to me?
    • Hello, Ken -

      An email has been sent to, the email that you provided us with.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!

    • I have a maxtrax for a broken right foot. I am now weighbearing and need a shoe for my healthy foot to keep my hips aligned. What is the height of the maxtrax? and any recommendations for shoes for the healthy foot?
      thank you,
    • Hello -

      For you healthy foot, we offer a product called an "Even Up" to allow you to walk level with the foot in the walker.

      If you have further questions, please feel free to contact our product specialists at 888-405-3251.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!
  • From Helen Matthews at 3/13/2013 4:22 PM
    • I have a foot fracture and have been given a small xcel trax walking brace, it seems a little big, I am a size 4 (37) uk will it cause problems if too big
    • Hello, Helen -

      You should be wearing an XS (up to a size 4). If the walker is too large, you risk injury such as tripping or stumbling because the boot is too large on your foot.

      If you have further questions, please feel free to contact our product specialists at 888-405-3251.

      Thanks and have a wonderful day!
  • From Dave at 2/16/2013 7:05 PM
    • I am a male, US shoe size 10.5. What size boot do I need? My large works great, but I have an inch and a half or more from my toe to the boot end. Is that what you'd recommend or should I be in a medium? I'm not too picky, but am curious if standards are developed for the M/L boots.

      Thank you, Dave
    • Hello, Dave -

      Because you are on the cusp of the Medium and Large, normally we recommend to go with the larger size. This will allow space to accomodate for people with wider feet. If you have an inch and a half of extra space at the tip of the boot, you may want to go with a medium instead.

      If you have further questions, please feel free to contact our product specialists at 888-405-3251.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!
  • From Joysea at 5/22/2012 5:24 PM
    • When at rest and elevated for a long period, can the boot be loosened up?
    • That is up to your physician who is prescribing the product for you.
  • From marie at 5/15/2012 5:20 PM
    • Can the liner for the boot be washed?
    • Handwash with mild detergent and air dry.
  • From Cathy at 5/2/2012 7:06 AM
    • Inhave this boot, and it works well! It is a size medium and fits fine. I was issued another brand by different Dr. For other foot in size medium, and it is horrible!! Way tight and way small, uncomfortable. I wear a size 10 in shoe. If I order this shoe you have, should I get a medium or a large?
    • Medium
  • From Lillian at 10/23/2011 9:45 AM
    • Do these boots come in left and right? The boot I am wearing seems like it's designed for a right foot, I'm wearing a left boot. Thank You.
    • Hi Lillian,

      The MaxTrax Walker is made to be worn on either foot.
  • From Jim at 10/19/2011 1:28 PM
    • I was prescribed a medium but wear a 11-1/2 shoe, will this be ok?
    • For an 11 1/2 sized shoe you need to be in a Large.
  • From Jeannie at 7/6/2011 11:38 AM
    • I have a prescription for a short walking boot (not an ankle boot). It is to stretch the tendon out. Would the DonJoy MaxTrax Walker be the one I need? Also, do you accept prescriptions?
    • what tendon are you looking to stretchout? The MaxTrax walker is a walking boot. There are only two lengths of walking boots, standard and ankle length. If you are needing to keep the ankle in a 90 degree ankle, then yes the maxtrax is an appropriate option for you. If you are needing to look to add range of motion in the ankle then you will need the MaxTrax ROM.
  • From Abby Corrigan at 8/5/2010 8:23 PM
    • I have a size medium in this boot and it is too tall for me. If I were to get a size small would the shaft of the boot be shorter? Because it's too tall it doesn't allow me to keep my foot all the way down in the bottom.
    • Hello Abby!

      Thank you for visiting us at!

      The DonJoy MaxTrax Walker will remain the same height , regardless of size.

      It sounds like you may want to look at the DonJoy MaxTrax Ankle Walker. Same walker design, but available as an Ankle Walker.

      Check it out here:

      Thank you for your question!
  • From Amanda Chastain at 7/9/2010 4:16 PM
    • is the boot slip resistant?
    • Yes. The rocker sole has a rubber grip to help eliminate slipping.
  • From Kelly at 4/14/2010 5:25 PM
    • I have this same boot, just wondering what the weight of the boot is. Thank you!
    • The DonJoy MaxTrax Walker weighs 2.7lbs
  • From Chester Z at 3/30/2010 10:00 AM
    • I was recently fitted with a Medium size boot - walker, with a pump and there is a tag with the number 102309CE at the top. Can you please advise what is the weight of the boot.

      Can you also please advise when is the best time to use the pump feature - i.e. stage of healing.


      Chester Z.
    • The weight of the DonJoy MaxTrax Walker is 2.8 lbs

      The pump is less of a "stage of healing" feature and more of a compression and stabilization feature. If your foot in the boot is all wrapped up and/or bandaged and your foot has wiggle room or spacing issues, at that time you would use the pump to inflate the liners and reduce the wiggle room in the brace.
