Branier’s BR-4 is a custom low-top athletic-style shoe that is tailor-made to address the needs of individual patients. Designed with a cosmetic semisurgical opening and padded tongues and collars, the BR-4 has been engineered to mitigate issues with bulky fit that are characteristic of deep lasted diabetic footwear. Extended heel counters of high quality celastic are designed for rearfoot stability. Individually contoured rocker soles, manufactured from lightweight orthopedic midsoles, provide forefoot relief. The BR-4 is available in 10 colors, with either lace or Velcro closure and three liner options. One pair of custom-molded inserts is included in the base price.
