The Plantar Fasciitis Night Splint Boot by BraceAbility is specifically designed to hold your foot at a 90° angle or less, gently stretching your plantar fascia, Achilles tendon, and calf muscle throughout the night to alleviate painful first steps in the morning.
WHAT DOES THIS SLEEPING STRETCH BOOT HELP TREAT?
Men and women of all ages can benefit from the stretch provided by this nighttime foot brace, relieving discomfort caused by a variety of conditions including plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, heel spurs, and foot drop.
Holding your ankle in gentle dorsiflexion, this splint keeps your foot at a 90° angle to your leg. For an even greater stretch, you can add the soft, foam dorsiwedge insert, which elevates your foot to relieve inflammation and increase comfort. Customizable, dual tension straps from your toe to calf also provide increased dorsiflexion for the optimum pain relieving stretch.
BREATHABLE & LIGHTWEIGHT
The soft night boot is secured with three quick-release buckles and medical-grade Velcro. These wide, adjustable straps allow you to adjust the tightness of the brace to your own specifications, securing your foot. The low-profile and open design helps keep your foot cool and dry.
RIGID EXTERIOR SHELL
Its durable exterior shell provides additional support to ensure proper foot positioning throughout the night.
SOFT PADDED LINING
The drawback to many splints for plantar fasciitis is that they can be uncomfortable and interfere with your sleep, which is counterproductive when it comes to healing. However, our splint is generously padded with a breathable foam and covered with an ultra soft material for optimal comfort. Removable for washing, the extra soft lining eliminates skin irritations, preventing blisters and abrasions.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Where do I put the foam wedge?
The wedge should be inserted under the padded liner beneath your toes, as pictured above.
Is it uncomfortable?
The bulkiness of a night splint might take some adjusting to. For at least the first week, some podiatrists discourage their patients from trying to sleep with it on. Instead, wear it while lounging. After you feel comfortable you can start wearing the boot at night and gradually increasing dorsiflexion stretch.
Can I walk in this boot?
Yes, it is suitable for walking short distances without removing. However, we recommend removing if you plan on walking more than a fews steps around the house.
Can it be worn on either foot?
Yes, its universal design allows the boot to be worn on your right or left foot.
