If you are recovering from a surgery or injury on both of your feet, then you'll want to purchase two Darco OrthoWedge Shoes. Our Double Pack allows you to get a pair of Darco Shoes, at less of the price!


Darco OrthoWedge Shoe

Weight-bearing pressure on the forefoot can be painful, especially when you've just had a foot operation or trauma, or you have forefoot wounds or ulcerations. In such cases, the pressure can make recovery times longer. The Darco OrthoWedge Shoe is an ideal and effective off-loading post-operative shoe. Darco's OrthoWedge has been clinically proven to effectively reduce weight-bearing pressure from the forefoot to promote proper healing.

Peg Assist Compatibility

The Darco All Purpose Boot features a fully removable insole which can be replaced with a Darco Peg Assist Insole if additional pressure off-loading at precise points on the foot is required

Features of the Darco OrthoWedge Shoe 

  • Square toe design acts as bumper to protect toes
  • Reduces forefoot pressure by as much as 57%
  • Ankle strap seats foot firmly in shoe to reduce heel slippage and eliminate friction
  • Removable forefoot closure eliminates buckle pressure
  • Zoned outsole has aggressive tread under midfoot
  • EVA insole has twice the padded of a standard insole
  • Insole can be modified as needed
  • Suitable for left and right feet
  • Promotes healing by reducing weight from the forefoot

Indications of Darco's OrthoWedge

When forefoot off-loading is required to allow wounds or ulcerations under the metatarsal heads and toes to heal, nothing beats the OrthoWedge. The shoe can be used for a number of conditions, including:

  • Post-surgical healing
  • Forefoot trauma
  • Wounds or ulcerations present under metatarsal heads and toes
  • Any situation that requires pressure off-load of the forefoot

What If This Shoe Makes Walking Uncomfortable?

Due to the depth of this shoe, you may find that walking is uncomfortable due to the leg length discrepancy it creates. To correct this issue, we recommend the Evenup Shoe Balancer, which will raise your other foot to provide a more even and comfortable gait.

Can I Wear the OrthoWedge Outdoors?

While the OrthoWedge isn't specifically designed for outdoor use, it is made with a robust tread on the bottom and should provide enough traction and support for most terrains. While getting the OrthoWedge wet or dirty won't immediately prevent it from working properly, we recommend that you wipe down and clean the shoe as soon as possible to ensure it stays in good condition for as long as possible.
