BRACES & ORTHOTICS

WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN SHOES

Look for extra room in the heel and mid-foot area.

The main problem people run into when wearing braces like AFOs or Arizona’s is there isn’t enough room in the heel and mid-foot areas of shoes to accommodate the brace. The brace takes up a lot of room and people generally have to size up 1 or 2 sizes in order to get their foot into the shoe. This can leave a huge problem for the non-braced foot. People who wear braces often need a pair of shoes that can accommodate 2 different volumes.

HOW OUR SHOES HELP

WHY WEARING EXPANDABLE SHOES MATTERS

Our shoes have expansion in the uppers, which gives a great deal more room for the foot with a brace on it. The instep needs to be much higher or wider for a brace to fit inside. Our shoes stretch in the mid-foot area and have a stretchy no tie lace system. Our heel area expands too, which is the only way to get a brace into the shoe and still allow for a regular sizing for a non-braced foot.

ACCOMODATES MY AFO!

"These are the first shoe that accommodates my brace. I wear an ankle foot orthosis and have had a very difficult time finding shoes...cute shoes that don't scream orthopedic! I have had to buy 2 different sizes to accommodate my brace.however, Pandere shoes are the first to fit both of my feet in one size. Love them!"

PAM (APR 2019)



INCREDIBLY COMFORTABLE

"I love these shoes. The uppers wrap your foot without applying pressure anywhere. I don’t really have swelling issues, but I do have a Morton’s neuroma and wanted shoes that would allow me to install a thicker, supportive footbed without having the upper get too tight. These worked out out perfectly. They also look WAY nicer than any of the other shoes which are marketed for this purpose."
