The DARCO MedSurg Shoe is designed to provide the foot with solid protection and easily accommodate bulky bandages. It features a square-toe design to provide added protection for the toes. The sole has a metal shank design that supports the metatarsal region when walking. The DARCO MedSurg Shoe has a hook and loop closure across the front, which can fit up to a 17-inch circumference from large bandages and dressing. It also eliminates any added pressure caused by more traditional D-ring closures that can irritate the forefoot area.

Very aggressive tread at the midfoot provides superior traction. The reduced-friction tread at the toe and heel helps accommodate toe drag and scuff, minimizing the risk of accidental tripping. The elastic strap around the front of the ankle prevents the product from slipping off the heel. The DARCO MedSurg has a rocker bottom sole designed to reduce pressure on the bottom surface of your foot by up to 25% for a more comfortable walking experience.

Features and Benefits of Darco MedSurg Shoe:

  • The square-toe design acts as a bumper to provide additional protection when K-wires are present.
  • MetaShank™ Protection provides more rigid control under the metatarsal heads.
  • Forefoot Closure eliminates buckle pressure on the forefoot and can expand to accommodate dressing up to 17 inches in circumference.
  • Fully compatible with DARCO’s PegAssist™ (PTQ Series) off-loading insole.


  • Postoperative for stabilization and off-loading
  • Postoperative healing (e.g., foot osteotomies)
  • Trauma care
  • Presence of K-wire (Does not apply to APB™ or APQ™)

Instructions for use:

The DARCO® healing shoe provides stabilization, shock absorption, and pressure off-loading after foot surgery. The shoe fits right and left equally.

1. Open the shoe by means of the closures.
2. Please ensure that the foot is properly positioned in the shoe.
3. Secure the foot in the shoe with the closures.

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.
