Prophet USA manufactures an excellent lineup of walking shoes, and the Propet Stability Walker is no exception. Its thick rubber sole and 100 percent leather design provide maximum stability and comfort while wearing them. That makes them the ideal option for seniors who want to walk more and enjoy the outdoors. These shoes have been intentionally designed to be wide in the foot’s ball area and toward the toes, they are more narrow. This increases the stability of the shoe when they are worn and walked in.
To increase the comfort of the shoe, a heel pad has been added along with a PU insole featuring cushioned ridges. The insole is especially beneficial for individuals who have flat feet. However, the insole can also be removed very easily if you would prefer to use different ones.
The stability and comfort of the Propet Stability Walker also can benefit individuals suffering from knee or ankle pain. For example, for someone who has undergone knee surgery recently, the walking shoe will make it a lot safer and easier to walk in.
There are very few flaws or drawbacks to the Propet Stability Walker. A heavy emphasis is placed on stability and comfort, but it is not the most stylish shoes in the world. The women’s version of the shoe is not very feminine. Also, some users have complained that the soles wore through after just a couple of months of exercising in them on a regular basis.
Overall, the Stability Walker from Propet is an excellent option for seniors who are suffering from knee pain or want to exercise on a more regular basis. However, for those who are physically active every day, these shoes might not hold up as well as they would like.
A good shoe for seniors who want to talk more but need a shoe that offers stability and cushioned comfort.
