Snow Shoes for a Stroke Survivor
www.overshoesonline.com shows how to don this boot. Warning #1: I do not put the boots on while standing as the video shows because I do not have good standing balance. My boots go on safely while I am sitting. A trick the video doesn't show is to make the ankle straps as long as I can before I put on the boots. After I snap the straps closed I pull on the ends of the straps to make them tight. Warning #2: The first set of boots I ordered was too big so they flopped around when I walked. Bottom Line: I get good traction from the treads and don't arrive with soggy shoes. I walk more slowly with boots on, but that beats not being able to keep important appointments like a doctor's visit.
