This shoe was designed specifically for use after soft tissue procedures or trauma to the foot. It is a very good solution for those looking for a comfortable, low cost, postoperative shoe. The Semi-rigid metatarsal shank provides superior control of forefoot motion to ensure postoperative healing undisturbed. The Tri-laminated upper is made of light weight breathable tricot-foam and comfortably conforms to bony abnormalities. Hook and Loop Straps are easy to fasten and unfasten with one hand.
