These are some expensive boots that truely aren't pretty! I see why my Mother always said no playing ball in the house. I've always thought she was just uptight & since I'm a younger Mom I'm still cool, we can play in the house right? Wrong! I was going to kick it really hard, I missed & kicked the ground & I heard a snap. After that I had a hard time walking & had to go to the doctors, then he sent me to have an x-ray because it was really badly bruised & swollen. After the x-ray tech got through, I got a phone call from the doc that it was definitely fractured so I had to get a boot. I picked up the boot & the nurse showed me how to put it on. Lots of velcro to securely hold your foot in place. Amazingly it made walking a lot easier. It looks like a moon shoe & a knee high boot blended together. After I got my boot the doc called me back to let me know the x-ray tech mixed up the patients & my foot was not fractured just badly sprained but, I still had to wear the boot. At least I can walk with no problem/pain. Just be sure not to step on anyone elses foot because it could do some serious damage.
