I have been wearing afos/leg braces for more than 20 years and consider myself an unofficial expert on finding fashionable shoes that fit. I have worn several different types of afos but have been wearing a carbon fiber style for the past 10 years. This style of afos has a smaller footbed than the custom plastic kind I used to wear and can fit into more shoe styles.
You should know that I’m not a doctor, orthotics, nor a rule follower. I’m pretty sure that many of the sandals, shoes and boots I wear & post here do not comply with the brace manufacturer’s instructions.I know my condition and abilities and if the shoe fits…..
So,it’s your choice and decision to experiment with various shoe styles…You can take them or leave them but please don’t sue me.
