shoe help for people with leg braces or orthotics
Share this post

When I first started wearing leg braces, I thought my cute shoe days were over forever. Since the brace made my already wide foot even wider, I thought the only bearable option were wide-width overpriced “comfort shoes”.

I had an epiphany a few years ago when I realized that since I remove the insoles from every pair of shoes, I’m not really getting or apparently needing the “comfort” part; My leg braces are doing the real work.

What I really needed, were wide shoes with depth, good soles & stability. Some plus size stores have EEEE width shoes. They are mostly inexpensive and best of all, always on trend.

What are your favorite Tweaks?
