I am 20 years post and still deal with drop foot in both feet. I stopped using AFO’s many years ago because they were so cumbersome to wear and like you, I hate shoe shopping. I now use 8” high top leather work boots for everyday use and support. However, I would love to wear low top shoes again and feel I have kind some ankle support when I do. You mentioned lace up ankle supports. Can they be bought in a sporting goods store? I would appreciate knowing where a person might buy them “over the counter”….
