Bulky foot dressings preventing you from wearing shoes to work? Diabetic foot ulcer taking forever to heal and keeping you from the things you love?

If you’re forced to wear dressings or casts on your foot for a long period of time but still need to get around without disrupting your healing process, Darco has the perfect solution just for you!

The Darco All Purpose Boot is an orthopedic device designed to accommodate bulky dressings and most fiberglass casts on the foot so you can still walk around in public without exposing your foot and toes to harsh elements. It fits comfortably over the foot with a closed-toe design to keep your foot dry and safe from impurities, infection, or further injury. Essentially a shoe, the Darco All Purpose Boot is oversized on purpose to not put any unwanted compression or strain on the foot and toes while you wear it. 

Also used as a physical therapy aid for post-surgical patients, the Darco All Purpose Boot is durable, versatile, and promotes optimum healing, so you can still go about your day worry-free.

Features and Benefits of the Darco All-Purpose Boot:

  • Fits overcasts and other bulky dressings
  • Adjustable velcro closure for comfort and best fit
  • Relaxed rocker sole reduces plantar pressure under the forefoot and heel by over 25%
  • Closed-toe design to keep the foot and toes safe from infection, injury, and the elements.
  • The square-toe design acts as a bumper to protect the toes when k-wires are present and provides a better Left/Right fit.
  • The ankle strap seats the foot firmly in the shoe to reduce heel slippage and eliminate friction.
  • Removable Forefoot Closure provides security while eliminating buckle pressure.
  • Zoned Outsole has an aggressive tread under the mid-foot where traction is needed most.
  • Removable Insole features twice the padding of standard insoles and can be modified as needed.
  • A unique Metatarsal Shank under the Metatarso-Phalangeal joints increases support and rigidity under the forefoot.
  • Rocker Bottom sole to promote a normal-as-possible walking pattern
  • It fits either the Left or Right foot

The Darco All Purpose Boot Can Be Used For:

  • Post-surgical healing
  • Unna boots
  • Casts
  • Foot/ankle trauma
  • Diabetic Ulcers
  • Wounds present under metatarsal heads and toes

Satchels & Box Packaging

Most of our orders are sent with mailing satchels. With inflation, supply chain issues and the general increase in costs in almost every aspect of our business - the benefit of using satchels is that it lowers the weight and size of the parcel which keeps our cost down. This has allowed us to continue to offer free standard shipping.

Please note that sometimes parcels can get squashed during transit which cause your products packaging to get dented or slightly damaged.  The product will not be affected.

If you wish to avoid any risk of damage during transit or your purchase is a gift we recommend opting for our $1.50 box packaging option. You will find this option in the cart page after you add your items to cart.

  • Personal details may need to be confirmed for fraud prevention if we are unable to verify the shipping destination. Sometimes we will require personal detail verification before dispatching orders to protect the card holder, and this may delay shipping.
