Product Description

The Short walking boot offers a solution to indications related to the forefoot, mid-foot and hind foot injuries, as well as some ankle injuries.

Desinged to Support and Protect:

  • Forefoot, midfoot, and hindfoot injuries
  • Foot fractures
  • Soft tissue, tendon or ligament injuries
  • Acute or post-operative care
  • Ankle sprains
  • Fracture healing
  • Management of edema (swelling)

The Short has a durable, semi-rigid shell that helps support the limb while providing protection. The pre-inflated front panel and two adjustable distal aircells, housed within the shell, provide compression and support. SoftStrike technology absorbs and dissipates shock, while the light weight rocker sole combine to encourage a natural gait and a continuation of everyday activities.

Features & Benefits

  • Customizable, independent aircells (NO separate hand bulb). Integrated inflation system puts the user in control for an individualized fit
  • Non-marking, skid resistant rubber tread. For greater traction and longer wear.
  • SoftStrike technology absorbs and dissipates the energy during heel strike
  • Low profile rocker sole. The rocker sole, enables a normal walking gait with less forefoot angulations. Toe-off section continues the rocking motion, enhancing mobility. Mid-stance section is designed to minimize hip differential.
  • Custom and comfortable fit. Trimmable and heat moldable semi-rigid shell makes it easy to custom-fit the brace to the patient. Sleek, open-frame design provides ventilation and patient protection and compliance. Shell contours around the malleoli, eliminating pressure for sustained comfort. AirSelect boots have improved width around the ankle area as well as uniformed sizing throughout the various sizes of the boot (XS-XL).
  • Ease of application. Three-strap system evenly disperses pressure, eliminates pooling of edema. Integrated inflation system is intuitive and permits quick and easy customization of each aircell.


Do not over-inflate aircells. Improper aircell inflation may cause significant skin irritation, especially in people with diabetic neuropathy (a diabetic nerve condition). Check your skin frequently for "hot spots" and skin irritation. If you see any skin changes or feelings of discomfort, reduce the aircell compression. Do not use this device if you cannot feel sensations whether due to post-op anesthesia, nerve, skin or other conditions. Use caution when walking on slippery or wet surfaces to avoid injury.

  • Melissa at 3/6/2016 6:13 AM
    • I could not find the exact model that I have, but it looks like the short walking boot, but higher up with two straps on the leg. It is not the Elite. I have a medium which fits my foot, but I have a wide calf and the top area where the pump button is digs into my lower calf. How can it be trimmed?
    • On the back of the calf section of the boot is a lattice design in the shell that can be cut to allow for more room in the calf section

    • I have been wearing this boot (one on each foot for multiple metatarsal frax). Holidays quickly approaching -- but not my transition dates --

      Does this boot come in black?? Please say yes....:)

    • Thank you for your question. The weight of the Air Select Short will depend on the size, but will range from 1.25 pounds to 2 pounds. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
  • Millie at 7/8/2014 5:05 AM
    • I started wearing this boot yesterday afternoon for a hairline fracture to the base of my toes & I'm non-weight bearing for now.
      I have started to form a blister on my heel for some reason & I asking for suggestions to stop the blister from forming more.
      Also, can I wear a lightweight sock to stop any friction as long as I don't have any open sores while wearing this boot?
    • Millie
      Please contact your physician and let them know about the blister. It is strange that you are not ambulating on the foot and you have developed a blister. You can wear a sock, and make sure that you are pumping up the aircells in the boot to eliminate as much movemement as possible in the foot. The more movment the more friction, just make sure that you are not making it so tight that you are cutting off your circulation.

    • Do you sell just the liner? I have another 6 weeks in the boot and need an additional liner. This one is wearing out.
    • Kris
      I am sorry we do not have a replacement liner for that boot
  • Michele at 6/23/2014 12:20 PM
    • I am preparing to have foot surgery on a lisfranc fracture - I will need to be non weight-bearing for 6-ish weeks. I presume that this boot cannot be used for that and is used later in the recovery process?
    • Michele
      The boot can be worn after surgery if your physician is okay with that.
  • Cristin at 6/8/2014 3:03 PM
    • Where can I purchase a replacement liner for this boot? I have another 4 weeks to go in mine and with the warm weather, it would be nice to have a back up liner for when I'm washing and air drying the other one.
    • Christin
      That insole is not available for sale on BetterBraces. You will need to order that direct from DonJoy at 800-336-6596
  • Chelle at 5/25/2014 8:06 PM
    • How well does this boot protect the foot after bunionectomy with toe fusion, and hammertoe surgery? Is walking in this boot considered partial or full weight bearing?

      Thank you!
    • Thank you for your question. The AirCast AirSelect Short Walking Boot is designed to be worn after a bunionectomy. It will allow for partial weight bearing for the foot.
  • Greg at 5/16/2014 9:35 PM
    • hi- im not clear if this brace is a better option than the 84.00 air cast short walking boot
      what does this one do that the other doesn't.. looks like the air bladders are custom but what else. I have a 4th metatarsal stress fracture as well as a stress fracture on the navicualr. I need a good walking boot. i was given a rebound air walked by my dr and it is a poor design and not immobilizing my foot. pls help
    • Greg
      The AirSelect Short is a re-designed model from the Aircast SP walker. The aircells have been changed for easier inflation and the front panel is pre-inflated. The boot was made lighter than the older model. The AirSelect walking boots have been designed to provide a more natural gait to the patient, and less hip differential, which has been a cause of discomfort for some patients. The bottom of the sole has a improved non-marking skid resistant rubber tread for greater traction and longer wear.
