A Good Looking Rocker!

A Double Rocker Sole is perhaps the most aesthetically pleasing rocker shoe modification available. It appears as two rockers, one at the rear-foot and one at the forefoot. It is lighter in weight, appears less bulky, effectively aids gait and interestingly enough is seldom specifically requested.


Indications for a double rocker sole can include, Hallux Limitus or Rigidus, limited ankle range of motion, Calcaneal ulcers or fractures and mid foot prominences associated with a Charcot foot.
