Okay but it has some issues

Rating:
Pros:
Cons:
  • Not robust construction
  • Poor directions
<p>Because of my wife's issues with her foot, ankle, and lower leg, I've had six years experience with various prostheses. This one ranks in the middle ground. It does protect her heel somewhat better than anything else we've tried, however...</p><p>The usage instructions are mostly about unpackaging the "boot", with very little about putting it on or any other usage guidance. The main, or at least the largest, strap split in the middle on first use. The hole hasn't enlarged so far and doesn't seem to affect boot retention. There's only one hard-to-decipher picture showing what to do with the other two straps. Based on my past experience, I've winged it. Some info on cleaning would have been good, but there isn't any. On balance, it's probably worth the $110 but I'm not at all in love with it.</p>
