How Heavy is an Aircast AirSelect Boot?
The Aircast AirSelect Boot is incredibly light, weighing in at only 0.25kg. A light design means there's less chance of feeling weighed down and fatigue ridden either during the day or post-wear.
What Makes the Aircast AirSelect Boot Superior to Similar Boots?
Designed with SoftStrike technology, the Aircast AirSelect Boot features a patented grid design that puts a matrix of shock-absorbing material in direct contact with the heel. This helps cushion the area to reduce heel loading and prevent impact-related stress in the area.
When this technology is coupled with a lightweight, low-profile rocker sole, the boot encourages a normal walking gait with less forefoot angulation. This helps prevent excessive knee hyperextension to reduce the likelihood that you suffer from re-injury.
Moreover, the AirSelect Standard Walker Boot fits both feet, so you can use this boot unilaterally for either foot.
How Does the AirSelect Standard Walker Boot Differ From the AirSelect Short Walker Boot?
Both versions of the Aircast AirSelect Walker Boot are highly comfortable and effective, with features such as Integrated Inflation Technology, Duplex Technology, Ultralight Technology and SoftStrike Technology, which absorbs and dissipates shock. They only differ in the height of the brace, which makes them suitable for different conditions. While the Standard Walker Boot is more suitable for ankle and lower leg injuries, the Short Walker Boot is perfect for various foot conditions.
How Does the AirSelect Standard Walker Boot Differ From the AirSelect Elite Walker Boot?
Both the AirSelect Standard and the AirSelect Elite are of the same height, offering support for your lower leg, as well as your ankle. What they differ in is the number of aircells. The AirSelect Standard comes with two aircells, left and right, while the Elite model has two additional cells that run slightly behind the two regular ankle cells. This makes the AirSelect Elite ideal for injuries at the very back of your foot or ankle.

How Customisable Is the Aircast Walking Boot?
The Aircast Boot offers a custom and comfortable fit.

Moreover, the integrated inflation system puts you in control for an individualised fit.
Can the Aircast Walking Boot Help to Reduce Swelling?
Every step you take with the AirSelect Walker Boot provides pulsating compression. This is because multiple aircells are layered within the semi-rigid shell for a massaging effect, which helps to reduce oedema.
How Comfortable Is the Aircast Boot?
The Aircast AirSelect Walker Boot is constructed with a semi-rigid shell to provide ample protection to the area. The support is also crafted with structurally-engineered vents to maximise airflow and minimise mass without compromising support. This helps ensure you remain comfortable even over long periods.
