Shoe shopping + CP = nightmare!!!
I have had problems getting the right shoes all my life, there are so many factors to think about, such as: whether they are supportive enough when not wearing my splints, how hard wearing they are - I can wear shoes out in weeks, and whether they fit my odd shaped feet.
The shoes I wear most (and have done since I was first diagnosed) are piedro boots, they are really supportive, come in various widths so I can get them to fit perfectly. They are also easy to get my splints in, which is really hard t find smart shoes that are wide and deep enough to go over them.
Now I have afo's on both legs shoe shopping has become slightly easier, as I can buy shoes in a size larger, and don't have to worry about how supportive they are as the support comes from the splints.
I favour skate type shoes such as vans, as they are quite wide and easy to get afo's in once I have taken the insoles out.
