About Orthopedic Boots
These medical boots prevent further damage to an injury and help the area heal quickly. As the foot or leg begins to heal, a walking brace slowly allows weight to be put onto the injured foot as the person transitions towards a full recovery. Most medical walking boots have straps for slight adjustments, and some have air cushions to hold the injured area comfortably in place. Many orthopedic walker boots help people to walk normally without the use of crutches (doctor advised only). Orthopedic walking boots can come in either tall or short versions, and some have air cushions to help hold the injured area comfortably in place.
Tall Orthopedic Boots vs. Short Orthopedic Boots Tall orthopedic boots are usually for more severe stress fractures of the lower leg, foot, or ankle and allow for much more support than shorter boots. Tall orthopedic boots are usually recommended for stress fractures of the lower leg, acute ankle sprains, stable fractures of the ankle and foot, soft tissue injuries of the lower leg, and post-operatively.
Shorter orthopedic boots are less supportive but can still be helpful to immobilize the foot after post-operative foot surgery or ankle sprain and are much lighter. These boots are usually recommended for digital and metatarsal fractures, post-operative foot surgery, and soft tissue trauma of the ankle and foot. Most walker boots are large enough to accommodate bandages and casts and provide more protection during the weight-bearing mobility part of recovery.
Air Pump Orthopedic Walkers vs. Non-Air Walker Boots Air pump orthopedic walker boots inflate with special hand pumps to provide customizable compression and can reduce swelling and provide more foot stability after an injury. Typically, air pump orthopedic walking boots are recommended for more serious injuries, including sprained ankles, metatarsal stress fractures, post-surgery injuries, pressure sore, and toe fractures. Because you can easily adjust the amount of air and compression in air pump boots, they are an excellent choice for more sensitive or painful injuries. They also help by contouring around the leg and reducing movement within the boot.
Non-air orthopedic walker boots still provide a great amount of stability, are adjustable, and can provide the right amount of stability especially if you suffer from slight heel pain or just had bunion surgery. By immobilizing the foot, ankle, calf, or all three, non-air walking boots allow minor injuries to heal even while you remain on the move, making them a great solution for post-surgical recovery as well.
Some walking casts implement added supports that are used to provide an additional degree of support to the leg. Browse our selection of orthopedic walking boots, including tall boots, short boots, air pump boots, and non-air walking boots on this page.
