Title
(EN) Shoe for a casted foot
Abstract
(EN)

A cast shoe sized and configured to be worn on a casted foot. The shoe includes an air-insufflated outer sole formed of a resilient polymeric material to absorb impact. The outer sole has a heel portion of substantially uniform thickness, a tapered toe portion that is thinner than the heel portion, an upper surface, and a lower surface that has a tread pattern and is curved as a result of the tapered toe portion to provide a single rocker bottom function in gait. An inner sole overlies and is attached to the upper surface of the outer sole. A strap located adjacent the heel portion of the outer sole is provided for securing the cast shoe to a casted foot. The outer and inner soles lack any rigid member that would stiffen the sole.
