Tell me how to fit this walking boot properly.

Posted by Holly L. on 7/05/03 at 16:36 (123632)

I need some instructions on how this boot should be worn and feel on my foot. I don't think the nurse fit it right. It feels loose? My toes are hidden in the padding? any advice maybe I need a size smaller?

Thanks,

Holly L.

You may want to try the next size smaller but the fact that there is very little pain tell DR. Z that the boot is doing its job
