I was placed in an extremely useful, yet bulky AFO in Jan '16. It gave me some peace because I'd no idea that I'd be dealing with foot drop. Over the months, I began researching braces and wanting to challenge myself by walking in a brace that didn't provide as much support. That and, of course, I get tired of the stares...the questions!! My word!! I actually would tell people I stepped on an IUD in Iran...Small joke!! I'd tell the truth when the "really?" was asked! Anyhow, I wanted to share this brace with any of you who may be dealing with foot drop and would like to come out of your bulky AFO. I hope this helps...
