We got nate some really nice New Balance Athletic shoes a week or so ago and they work great with his AFO as long as we tighten the laces as much as is possible.
Otherwise they rub the top of his toes from his foot drop.
They hold his AFO and ankle very steady and he really likes the way it feels.
Now if I can just get him to walk more at home. If he would put his shoes on at home and not just his AFO, he could walk more. He’s like me in that though. He likes NO shoes.
I will tell him what you said about falling at home being better than out.
That one made me laugh cause its true. Nothing worse than a bunch of people either rushing to help or looking the other way cause they’re embarrassed.
