The Ugg Boot – Podiatry Recommended from Pediatric to Grandmom…

Yes, it is a cool and fashionable boot – 
usually seen on teenagers or twenty-something’s with their Starbuck coffees 
(Hey, I’m not knocking it! I’ve got the Starbucks and the Uggs – just not the twenties…) 
but 
here’s another consideration…
The short Ugg boot is great for the grandmom with painful feet, corns or bunions. It’s light and easy to slip on (if you get the short boot) and super comfy with it’s sheepskin lining.
For those of you with a loved one 
confined to a wheelchair, 
the short Ugg boot is an excellent option 
for all of the reasons listed above. 
The Ugg boot is great for people who have swelling of the feet and ankles.    
It also has a wide base and is light for easier walking and stability. 

For younger patients who need more biomechanical control, 
the Ugg boot can accommodate 
custom-molded orthotics or a good over-the-counter arch support. 
My pediatric patients like wearing the Ugg and, when they have hypermobility, ligament laxity, bunions or hammertoes – the Ugg with arch support in it is an excellent option. 
It’s good for their feet and they like that 
the Ugg is fashionable!

Hope all is well!
