Comfortable Men's Work Boot - p.w. minor Hercules...
p.w. minor Hercules
This is an amazingly comfortable
men's work boot and, at $291.95, will be well worth the money you spend and a great investment in your foot health!
And it is an investment!!
Talk to you Podiatrist to see if you are eligible to get a prescription stating this boot is
'medically necessary' for your foot condition.
That helps to defray the cost by making it
tax deductible and may even be covered by your HSA through your insurance.
The p.w. minor Hercules is
an orthopedic work boot that offers
25% more extra-depth for the foot
and is built to accommodate a
The 8" height of the boot allows for more biomechanical control of the ankle, which helps with knee, hip and lower back pain and will be of particular value if you over-pronate, over-supinate, "roll in" or "roll out" when you walk.
The inside is lined with "Ultra Soft",
which is a microbial material
that wicks away moisture and it has
for the collar and tongue.
The boot has a metal shank, which is very protective and allows for less motion of the foot joints, which means less 'wear-and-tear' on the foot and ankle structures, decreased chance of injury and superior comfort.
I also love that this company has a
"Different Sized Feet" Program
for people with two different sized feet.
For this program,
Widths are available in A - 5E.
This Boot IS Recommended for Patients with:
*Mild to Severe Hammertoes
*Mild to Moderate Bunions & Tailor's Bunions
*Mild to Severe Metatarsalgia
*Hallux Limitus (Limited Range of Motion of the 1st Toe Joint
*Hallux Rigidus (No Motion at the 1st Toe Joint)
*Plantar Fasciitis (Heel Pain) - I would recommended that you get a custom-molded orthotic, a good over-the-counter insert or heel cups.
*Mechanical Strain caused by poor biomechanics
*Chronic Ankle Sprainers
*Knee, Hip and Lower Back Pain
*Corns and Calluses (Go to your Podiatrist to get them debrided or 'pared down' periodically to significantly reduce pain and risk of ulceration!)
This Boot is NOT Recommended For Patients with:
*Nerve Damage that causes weak or flaccid legs
This Boot MAY work for Patients with...
(Check with your Podiatrist so that he or she can give a specific recommendation to you based on the nature and extent of your foot condition):
*Peripheral Neuropathy (Nerve Damage) - Your Podiatrist will determine if this is the proper boot for you!
*Peripheral Arterial Disease (Poor Circulation)
*History of Non-Traumatic Amputations
*History of Diabetic Ulcerations
**I am not affiliated with this company
in any way...
Have a great day!
