- You are a golden ager that a shoe comfortable right out of the box and could soothe pain in the lower extremities is what you need.
- The convenience of having an all-in-one shoe perfect for casual, work, and even formal clothing is what you prefer.
- You are looking for footwear that allows doctor-prescribed heel inserts for your foot condition.
- A shoe with an A5500 code that helps wearers with diabetes through its reimbursement program is what you are after.
Grippy and long-lasting
A rubber outsole protects the bottom of the Propet Village Walker. It is constructed to be durable and has a tread pattern that allows it to grip ground surfaces to provide sure-footedness.
The outsole features a rocker shape. This design allows the foot to smoothly roll from the heel to the toes while walking and also keeps the pressure off the toes while in a standing position.
A lightweight EVA foam serves as the primary cushioning unit of the Propet Village Walker. It attenuates shock and its molded shape delivers stability.
Inside the footwear is a removable orthotic insert. This cushioning element has arch support and follows the shape of the foot to deliver full underfoot coverage and comfort.
Leather for the upper
The Village Walker from Propet utilizes a full-grain leather. This supple material with tonal stitching provides wearers with a protective cover that still allows the foot to move. The rounded tip offers ample room for the toes to splay.
The trainer employs a three-eyelet lace-up closure to deliver a customized fit.
Both the tongue and collar are padded to enhance the fit and comfort. Inside the rear section are the extended heel counter and the contoured heel stabilizer. Both elements aim to steady the rearfoot and provide long-term heel support.
