I just found your site. I am at home recovering from extensive foot surgery. I’ve been soaking, breaking up scar tissue. I do hate this boot though. I know that it’s throwing my back out because of the height difference it causes. Someone needs to come up with another shoe to wear on the other foot to help level things out! I have been wearing a higher heel on my other foot to help compensate. I don’t want to end up with back problems from foot surgery. Is there anything out there? I feel sorry for men who can’t drag out old pairs of high heels to level up the feet! There’s probably no way to add height to another shoe safely, is there? This lying around is for the birds. At least now I can play with my toes to stretch and break up scar tissue. I feel like I’ve reverted back to being a baby! Thanks for the info on your site … it’s very helpful.

Hi, April! Thank you for your comment. We wish you a speedy recovery from your recent foot surgery.

I hope this info helps! If you have any other questions, please do let us know.
