Soft shoe, not for protection just ease of surgical foot coverage. I had 2 pins in my toes after surgery and needed some thing to walk in not too heavy. Light weight easily adjusted for comfort.
Pros:Very inexpensive, my Dr. Office wanted to charge me $130 for a boot and this was only $21
Cons:The boot size recommendation said the small would fit a size 9.5shoe. I wear a 9 and mt toe hung off the edge by 1/2 inch. Needed to reorder a larger size. Listed size online is about 1 size off.
Overall: Yes, I would recommend this product.
