Are Propet shoes the best for balance?
I’m looking for shoes that will be comfortable and will help prevent slips, trips, stumbles and help with balance overall. Are Propet shoes the right choice for my dad who is only 75, but is starting to lose his footing more often than not?
I got these for myself after I had a bad fall a month ago. My daughter suggested I needed shoes that would help with my stability and balance. Must say they’re not that flattering, but I’d rather be safe. http://www.healthyfeetstore.com/propet-stability-walker-womens-shoe.html
With my disability in balance, Propet shoes are the best for me. Their Stability Walkers have a snug fit feel and keep my ankle stable, plus they have rubber soles, which keep me from slipping. They look like any other sneaker, so you don’t feel like you’re wearing anything orthopedic. Great shoes overall and they’re affordable.
Is your dad only having trouble with balance or is he also having pain in his feet? Only asking because I got propet shoes for my mother who had bad knees and was unsteady all the time, but also had unending swelling. She said they were extremely comfortable and had a wide sole for sure footed walking so she felt very stable. I think they could use more color options, since the ones they have are a little dull. But other than that, I think they’ll be great for you dad.
