I saw a specialist who suggested an Arizona brace. The one they made for me didn’t really fit well. (word to the wise, get the brace sized/made by a clinic who specializes in this and does not make knock-off generic versions in-house)
i have been using this brace with some heel-lift insert and a size 12 shoe (my right foot is a 10) and aside from being a little embarrassed to have one big fat darth vader foot, I get around waaaaaay better than before.
I am getting a new Arizona AFO made (out of pocket $800) because i found a better clinic and a better technician who told me about AZ Breeze material. Its not as durable bt its lighter, thinner, and breathable
