dd2 has hypomobility and wears pederios and kickers but summers here and would like to get her out if boots where possible. Anyone got some good one? Also anyone recommend a different type of pilmsoles.
Dd1 is wearing birkenstocks, we tried kickers sandals last year on dd2 but they did not fit as well as the boots . We also get stuck for plimsoles, maybe a baseball boot instead? Its so hard to find anything supportive but when dd1 has her birkenstocks on her feet look like they are in a better position than most shoes/sandals we have tried and she finds them comfy.
Having the same problem trying to find shoes for ds aged 3 (down's syndrome) Fed up of very sweaty little feet after a day of wearing his piedros. I've tryed him in Clarks summer shoes but not supportive enough and need sandals to come up higher around the ankle. I found these online the other day and as they are fairly cheap I'm going to give them a go!
We have bought B these He wears peidro boots but I couldn't put him through the heatwave we are supposed to have wearing boots. He wouldn't be able to wear open back or open toes. Yes he's supposed to wear ankle supports but at the end of the day he doesn't walk that much. There are other colours. He seems to be ok in them when he does walk. HTH x
DS2 actually walks quite well for short distances in his crocs. Not terribly supportive round the ankle, but they have quite good arch support and have the wide sole which stops his feet from rolling all the time. He's terrible in Clarks - just not stable enough for him. He walks in them like he's wearing stilletos.
Do you get shoes fom the Orthotics Department? We get a choice fom a catalogue and have sometimes chosen sandals. Ask to see thier catalogues, and if they use orthopaedic brands other than piedros. Duna, for example.
