The Shear Comfort Tall Slipper Boot is ideal for providing the necessary security to those at risk from skin ulcers to the feet and legs or those with vascular problems. Generous velcro fastening along the entire boot ensures it can comfortably accommodate most legs or feet regardless of swelling, and can be used in conjunction with compression bandages or support hosiery. The open toe design ensures toe separation and circulation inspection can be undertaken without removing the boot. The sole of the tall slipper boot is made from suede and is soft, making it ideal for use indoors or in beds and inclined chairs. It is not suitable for self transferring. We would recommend a boot with a hard rubber sole for this.
The qualities of the XD (extra density) 1900gsm wool reduce shear and friction as well as wicking moisture from sweat and urine away, which all work to prevent skin damage and ulceration. The sheepskin wool also effectively regulates body temperature and can therefore be used in both Summer and Winter.
The Shear Comfort Tall Slipper Boots are machine washable with standard household washing detergents and can be tumble dried following Shear Comfort instructions. Shear Comfort is warranted to withstand 50 washes at up to 80 degrees celsius for bacteria eradication.
For best results when caring for your sheepskin, Shear Comfort recommends washing with Shear Comfort Shampoo and Conditioner
