ProCare Nextep Contour "Shortie" Walker reviews
Cyd I wore these braces for two months after a double bunionectomy. The only problem I had was the bolts on the straps on the outer side of my feet rubbed my foot. Overall I was very pleased. Thank you Better Braces. Your prices were excellent. - Cyd
Peri I have been in a walking boot for several months due to a severely chronic ankle injury, including two tendon tears and one ligament tear. I am not a candidate for reconstruction surgery and must heal on my own, so I can wear a boot out fairly quickly. The Shortie aspect just means that the length is only a few inches shorter than most standard boots. But, for anyone that's been in a boot a while, even that reduction is wonderful and you feel like your skin can breathe. The boot is a bit big on, though I followed the size chart. With that in mind, I have to strap it down tight so my ankle doesn't move all around in it. It took a few days to get accustomed to the boot because of the high sole on the bottom. It's at least 3 1/2" higher than my other boot was. In addition, the rocker sole is clearly defined and if you're not used to that you will be caught off guard at first. My main complaints are that after it got wet, the glue started peeling off the front end. It's still holding up, but for $60.00 I expected it to be constructed better. Additionally, the padding that is in between the liner and the hard shell shifts with the slightest movement. It only has a velcro holder near the heel, not the arch or toe area, so it constantly moves to the right of the boot and shifts out -- annoying. Otherwise, it's a fair quality boot for the cost. - Peri
Wayne Because this is what Joe and the staff at BetterBraces deserves! I had a previous shipment from them come to me, however, that brace lacked an ergonomic design. I then emailed Joe and told him about the situation and he kept in contact with me throughout this time. I asked him if he could expedite this exchange because I needed to wear another brace that was not so obvious, for a weekend of work I had to do! He DELIVERED! Way to go JOE and Staff! - Wayne
fatfeet This boot was prescribed after my bunionectomy which I have been wearing day and night. It certainly gives the support required, but I find that it does not provide enough airflow and becomes wet at the bottom. More holes along the base might correct this problem. - fatfeet
Questions on ProCare Nextep Contour "Shortie" Walker
- From Anna at 5/28/12 10:10 PM
- I was prescribed this boot after breaking the 5th metatarsal on my right foot. My question is, can I wash the liner and if so, how? After wearing it continuously for a week (during the hot summer) it starts to stink. How do I clean it?
The liner can be hand washed with mild detergent and air dried.
Have a nice day.
