UGG CASPIA BOOT…
Loved this boot!
Found at Dillard’s at Paradise Valley Mall on Tatum & Cactus in Phoenix (ask for Kathleen!) – this is a wonderful boot because it has a supportive rigid sole which helps to decrease stress and strain across the foot. It has a wide toe box with no seams, making it excellent for anyone with mild bunion or hammertoe issues. It doesn’t have the best arch support but it may accommodate a dress orthotic (assuming you don’t have a high arch or painful bumps on the top of your mid-foot area which would cause pain). It is also fleece lined which is just comfy.
This boot is recommended for patients with:
*Mild to Moderate Bunions and Hammertoes
*Mild Morton’s Neuromas
*Mild Plantar Fascitiis/Heel Pain
*Mild Achilles Tendonitis
*Mild to Moderate Hallux Limitus/Rigidus (Limited Range of Motion at the 1st Toe Joint)
*Mild to (Perhaps) Moderate Osteoarthritis
*Mild Ankle Pain and/or Lateral Ankle Instability
*Diabetics with Minimal Foot Issues
This Shoe is NOT recommended for Patients with:
*Severe Bunions (although it might work if you take the boot to a shoe repair/Cobbler to have the leather in the bunions area stretched)
*Severe Osteoarthritis/Degenerative Joint Disease
*Moderate to Severe Tendonitis
*Severe Plantar Fascitiis/Heel Pain
Rating: 8/10 – on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being the best.
