Why my patients like this boot:
The Born brand has a solid following and they consistently make durable, comfortable shoes. They stay on pace with fashion trends but strive for comfort. This boot has a rubber sole that helps with shock absorption and a shank that maintains the stability of the shoe. The moderate heel allows for some height without putting too much pressure on the forefoot.
Who should NOT wear this boot:
There are few treads on the bottom of the shoe thus making if slippery on wet surfaces. Though a moderate heel, 2 1/2 inches can put pressure and cause pain on a neuroma. The leather will allow for some stretching and it has a moderately wide toe box. Persons with moderate bunion or hammertoes will do okay in these shoes but most people with bunions or big toe arthritis will still find these uncomfortable.
