Calcaneal fractures are rare and usually result from repetitive impact or when someone falls from a height. Impact activities such as running or gymnastics can lead to a calcaneal stress fracture, and these injuries must be treated with the appropriate guidance and care. 

Alongside guided rehabilitation, finding the best shoes after a Calcaneus Fracture is imperative. Based on our extensive clinical experience as foot and ankle experts, we will recommend the best shoes after Calcaneus Fracture.

Best Shoes After Calcaneal Fracture

The best shoes for recovery after a calcaneal fracture have a cushioned sole, low heel drop and a mesh upper. 

Skechers Max Cushioning

We recommend the Skechers Max Cushioning for its slip-on heel and maximal cushioning.

The slip-on reduces the compression against the heel, which can be sensitive post-fracture.

The maximal cushioning protects the heel from impact when walking or standing.

Asics Gel-Cumulus 25

We recommend the Asics Gel-Cumulus 25 due to their FF BLAST PLUS technology and PureGEL technology.

The FF BLAST PLUS technology is unique to the Asics brand, providing exceptional cushioning without adding weight to the shoe.

The PureGEL technology works as an additional shock absorber and provides additional comfort on heel strike.
