An ideal postoperative shoe should be comfortable to wear and protect the foot during recovery from surgery or injury. Protection is assumed to be related to peak pressure and force-time integral under the foot. This study compared a commonly used postoperative shoe with a new postoperative shoe that incorporates a rigid sole with an 11 degrees rocker bottom. The new postoperative shoe significantly reduced peak pressures on the forefoot by 20%. The amount of pressure and force-time integral reduction is compared with other values found in the literature for various shoe modifications. Indications for rocker-bottom shoes are also explored.
