Part 1: How to Bling Your Boot!
As if incurring an orthopedic injury isn’t painful enough, being told you have to wear a big ole, not-so-pretty orthotic walking boot for weeks on end is just plain depressing. If you’re like me, the first thing that may enter your mind is How can I bling up this ugly boot? Well, you’re in luck! You have quite a few options, as orthotic walking boot fashion is on the rise.
Everyone is going to be looking at that big boot you’re wearing, might as well make it a cute boot! At CastCoverZ!,you can find Bootz!, which are fashionable and functional covers for your boot in a wide variety…from solids and vibrant prints, to elegant and animal prints. Our Bootz! product covers the entire boot, including your toes and the stick-to-everything Velcro® straps. For safety reasons, the tread of your boot is left exposed. Bootz! are easy to slip on and off too, because we know you’re already inconvenienced and frustrated. Add an oh-so-soft, faux-fur Cuffz! for the perfect finishing touch!
Some other ideas to bling up your boot include weaving colorful ribbon and feathers, sticking campaign buttons, school or sports memorablia to the straps, pinning a silk flower (too cute!), or even applying Puffy Paint in a whimsical design will kick up your cute boot factor. Got a BeDazzler®? Bling your boot with sparkly rhinestones. What did we miss? Share with us your creative idea. Better yet, share a photo!
Don’t let rain, snow, or even sand stop you from decorating your boot. We have a slick weatherproof option, BootGuardz!, in a variety of prints. And for those unfortunate enough to have to wear their boot 24/7, we have Sleeping Bagz!, which are made of super soft fleece fabric. Save your sheets and don’t bring what you walked on all day (eww!) into bed with you.
