Comfortable Women's Naot Dress Boot for Autumn.

Naot Footwear Dynamic

It's definitely too early to talk about boots in Arizona but for those of you in colder climates - I thought it would be a good idea to start discussing them

I plan to do a "Top Ten" Women's Dress Boot List in the next month but I thought this would be a good preview. 

This boot has a thick, rigid protective sole which allows for more comfort for anyone who has to be on their feet all day. The heel gives some added height to the wearer (the heel height is 2-1/2 inches while the actual platform height is 1 inch) but it is also thick enough in the forefoot area to give protection. The boot tends to run a bit narrow so keep that in mind if you are ordering online. It has decent arch support and has a soft, wide toebox. I also like the aesthetics of the boot!

This Boot is Recommended For Patients with:
*Narrow Feet
*Mild Heel Pain / Plantar Fasciitis
*Mild Hallux Limitus (Mild Limited Range of Motion of the 1st Toe Joint)
*Mild Hammertoes
*Mild Bunions
*Mild Morton's Neuromas
*Mild Osteoarthritis
*Mild Achilles Tendonitis
*Mild Tendonitis
*Mild Hypermobility
*Mild Ankle Instability

This Boot is NOT Recommended For Patients With:
*Wide Feet
*Anyone with "bumps" or Prominences (exostosis) on the top of their midfoot area (the boot may cause too much pressure on the bump) 
*Severe Hallux Limitus (Limited Range of Motion of the 1st Toe Joint
*Severe Osteoarthritis / Degenerative Joint Disease of any of the Toe Joints
*Neuropathy (Nerve Damage)
*History of Ulcerations or Open Sores
*Charcot Foot
*Severe Hypermobility
*Severe Ankle Instability
*Moderate to Sever Bunions
*Severe Hammertoes
*Severe Calluses & Corns

Cost: $150 - $200
I found this boot on Zappos.com for $150

Rating: Excellent (especially for Women with narrow feet).

Have a Great Day!
