Walker Buddezz is simple to put together and only consists of three pieces. It requires no special tools or knowledge to install. The boot snaps onto the leg of your walker and contains a series of holes that coincide with the holes on the walker. This allows the user to adjust the height of the boot as needed. A foam liner attaches onto the boot and is secured in place by the nylon glide.
The foam liner serves as a buffer and helps ensure that the Walker Buddezz won't scratch or scuff sensitive surfaces such as hardwood, vinyl, and linoleum.
Common complaints among people who require the use of a walker are that it is very hard to turn or maneuver over thresholds such as doorways or surface changes. Walker Buddezz attempts to solve this problem by implementing a glide with an increased surface area made of a smooth nylon material. The form factor of the glide allows for easy turning and maneuvering over many different types of indoor and outdoor terrains.
As an additional product, the makers of the Walker Buddezz offer a variety of different skins. These range from simple patterns to cute animal characters such as pandas, giraffes, and penguins. When the product is purchased the customer can choose from one of three basic skins. Additional premium skins are available during the checkout process.
To solve frequent issues associated with walkers, users would often implement do it yourself solutions. The most common of these at home solutions was to attach a tennis ball to the bottom of the walker. While helping to alleviate the original problem, tennis balls are prone to getting dirty and wearing out. The Walker Buddeez are made of materials that attempt to correct both of these issues.
The foam liner is in the form of a large round ball. The makers of Walker Buddez state that this helps the person remain stable and prevents the walker from getting away from the user.
There are many other glides currently available on the market. Most of the current glides come in the form of plastic skis or rubber nobs that fit onto the bottom of the walker. Rubber and common plastics have the tendency to get stuck on surfaces such as area rugs or welcome mats. The plastic skis are likely to get caught in high pile carpeting and have a limited turn radius.
Walker Buddezz is a product that's new to the market. As of December 14th, 2017, there are no reviews or customer feedback anywhere available on the internet. Their official website contains only a few testimonials and no clinically verifiable data. The statements made about the product do not come off as outlandish but it should be noted that there is currently no way to independently verify the claims made by the company. Even with the lack of reviews, if similar products have worked for you in the past, Walker Buddezz might be worth considering.

Well, apparently, i did not call to report this in thirty days, so now i have to purchase new caps. These caps lasted about two weeks before they fell off and we're lost during walking. During that time i had some terrible medical news. It was just not a priority to call and report it. However, going to doctor's visits almost everyday and listening to the legs of my walker scrap the ground made me call today. Now i have to purchase new pegs. This company does not stand behind its product nor care about the senior citizens spending money for defective products. Do not buy these. They are not all terrain, nor do they stay together.

Very dissatisfied. Caps fell off within two weeks of use. Drags on pavement and asphalt. Sent email to company about caps falling off. Two weeks later and no response. Going back to my gliders.
