If you’ve suffered from any type of foot or ankle injury you know how difficult it can be to start walking on it again. You don’t want to put too much pressure or cause your ankle or foot to move in a direction it’s not really supposed to, but you do want to get some of your mobility back.

That’s where these orthopedic boots are going to come in. Like orthopedic shoes, each of these comfortable boots with arch supports and many other boot features is going to help you get up and moving around more easily and much more safely at the same time, even in cold weather.

Schoenbaum Short Walker

The Schoenbaum Short Walker is available in one size that covers sizes 7 to 11 and offers plenty of shock reduction while you’re walking or attempting to move around after an injury. It does this with three independent loaded shock absorbers that are located at the base, under the foot.

The three straps across the foot and leg help to keep the shoe secure and stiff to your leg at all times while the soft material of the boot will help keep you more comfortable no matter what you’re doing or how far you’re walking.

These orthopedic shoes provide you with a whole lot more comfortable even when you’re just sitting around and has multi-angle hinges at the ankle that can position your foot into just the right position as needed. When you’re walking after dark it keeps you more secure by providing yellow reflectors across the back.

Premium Short Air Cam Walker

The Premium Short Air Cam Walker is moderately priced and helps with the treatment of soft tissue injuries as well as stable fractures and grade 2 and 3 sprains. It uses an inflatable air bladder at the base to provide just the right amount of shock absorption while you’re walking and to help increase stability and decrease overall swelling.

It does this through the custom compression in the foot and ankle that is created by the boot itself and supported with the straps across both areas. These ‘air walking boots’ are lightweight and super easy to walk in even if you’re struggling with an injury or in seriously cold weather.

You’ll be able to adjust the bladder under the foot and the compression to accommodate anything you need during your rehabilitation process plus you can fit the straps exactly to you. With this boot, you get to choose between several different sizes that make sure you have a great fit and you don’t have to worry about further injury.

Mars Wellness Premium Tall Air Cam Walker

The Mars Wellness Tall Walker is designed for children and it’s meant for those who have bigger problems than just supporting the lower part of the ankle and foot. This boot actually extends much higher up the leg, below the knee, however, to provide additional support and ensure that the child wearing it is going to be comfortable and their leg is going to be protected. It has a quick release air valve that helps with compression and can be adjusted as needed throughout recovery.

It also has a beveled edged sole that helps your child to walk more naturally even with the boot on. Five different straps to hold the boot together and firmly on the leg are great for additional support and the comfortable material of the boot itself is another way to get more support. Contoured and capable of reducing added weight on the foot, this walker is a great choice for children who want to get back up after an accident.

Aircast SP Walking Boot

The Aircast SP Walking Boot is designed with several different sizes so it fits anyone from child size to adult. It’s moderately priced and features a full boot of soft material that fits up over the ankle and a heavy plastic one that fits over the entire boot, including the front.

This boot only uses two heavy straps to hold it together and keep it in place over the foot and ankle, but that doesn’t mean it’s any less supportive and durable for the long haul. You’ll have plenty of that and plenty of room to move around while you’re at it.

This boot has a hand bulb air pump so you can get just the right amount of support under and around the foot as well as leaving enough space for added dressings as needed. You’ll be able to wear this brace on either side and it works great for postoperative situations, ankle sprains, soft tissue injuries and a whole lot more.

Premium Walking Shoe Cast

The Premium Walking Shoe Cast is simple and smaller than all of the rest but, then, it’s designed to support an injury to the foot rather than one to the ankle. This shoe has a style like your favorite sandals but with a whole lot of support all the way around.

It provides a squared-off front for the toes so there’s a little extra space that keeps your toes from being bumped or injured further and the straps around the foot and at the ankle help to keep your foot right where it needs to be for support. Not only that but there’s a little bit of added heel in the back to help with holding the foot in and keeping the pressure just right.

With this cast, you’re going to have plenty of structure and support for your foot and you’ll be able to easily and comfortably get around throughout the day. The rocker sole means that you get a more natural walking experience and the comfort of the shoe means you won’t mind wearing it as long as you need to.

With any of these boots, you’re going to have the comfort you want and, more importantly, the stability and support that you need. You’ll be able to get through the time you need to wear a brace much easier and before you know it you’ll be walking just fine (without a cast) again.
