Darco All Purpose Boot for Post-Surgical Healing

After surgery or injury, it is vital that feet are well protected to guard against reaggravation of the affected area. The Darco All Purpose Boot for Post-Surgical Healing provides all-season protection with a closed toe design which allows dressings to be kept clean and toes dry, with an ability to accommodate bulky dressings and fibreglass casts.

What's Included With My Purchase?

  • 1 x Post Surgical Boot

How Can the Darco Boot Help Me?

The Darco All Purpose Boot is suitable for various indications, including:

  • Post-surgical healing
  • Unna boots
  • Casts and bulky dressings
  • Foot/ankle trauma
  • Metatarsal wounds/ulcerations

Key Features and Benefits

  • Can be worn on the left or right foot
  • Reduces plantar pressure by up to 25%
  • Removable EVA insole for customisable support
  • Compatible with the Darco Peg Assist Insole
  • Rocker bottom encourages a smooth roll throughout the gait pattern
  • Rocker bottom and padded insole reduce pressure on the foot
  • Metatarsal shank construction provides a reinforced sole
  • Strapless forefoot closure provides uniform security 
  • Zoned outsole with aggressive tread to increase traction
  • Square design acts as a bumper for toes 
  • Ankle strap reduces slippage and eliminates friction

Does the Boot Reduce Plantar Pressure?

The padded, protective design of this boot allows it to reduce plantar pressure on the forefoot and heel by up to 25%. The original insole provided features twice the padding of standard insoles, making it highly protective and comfortable right out of the box. To increase support and rigidity, a unique Metatarsal Shank is fitted under the MP joints of the forefoot.

Can the Shoe Be Used With an Insole?

The Darco All Purpose Boot features a fully removable insole that can be replaced with a Darco Peg Assist Insole for additional pressure relief for problem areas of the foot. This allows for extra comfort on top of the high levels of protection provided by the boot alone.

How Secure is the Boot?

When it comes to post-operative footwear, security and slip-resistance are key, which is why this boot has been made with a square toe which acts as a bumper for the toes when K-wires are present. An ankle strap ensures the foot is firmly in position without slippage and friction, while a removable forefoot closure provides security and eliminates buckle pressure. Finally, to increase traction, a zoned outsole with an aggressive tread is fitted to the bottom of the boot.

An excellent purchase
Saturday, 20 July 2019  | 

Supportive, adjustable, comfortable; so many ways to commend this all purpose boot, purchased following a broken little toe.

It has enabled me to function during a distressing time following my husband's admission to a London hospital suffering from a bleed on the brain. I have been able to drive and use public transport with ease during an extremely distressing time - not to mention thrice-daily walking of my Hearing Dog!

Once the toe has fully recovered the boot will be stored for future use, but hopefully not too near in the future!
Husband is now doing well and hopes to be home soon.
Thank you for this product,

Darco All Purpose Boot
Thursday, 21 June 2018  | 

This item was a Godsend for us! Our son was recently fitted with an AFO (leg brace) and we were at our wits end trying to find a shoe the AFO would fit into. The Darco All Purpose Boot is perfect! It is comfortable, lightweight and, very importantly to a teenage boy, it is subtle - the material being similar to popular lightwear trainers. The product is probably geared more towards accomodating plaster casts but it should also be marketed for AFOs. Excellent product!
