Default Cool shoes for leg brace wearers

Finding a comfortable, good looking shoe that will accommodate a drop foot brace was difficult to find. The winners I have listed below have a removable insole, are light weight and look great!

Merrell Siren Sport
Keen Charleston Lace Shoe
Propet open toe sandals #WOO89

Walk On!

You rock! Thanks for posting these. I will have to check them out. I have been using crocs the last few weeks, as I found they are much more colorful than ortho. shoes...and yet fit my AFO very well.

Thanks! I am excited to go try some shoes!

I just got my AFO's a few weeks ago and had to get new shoes, the ones I had were kind of tight with the braces. I went to the New Balance store and they fitted me with my AFO's on. Had to get 2 sizes bigger than normal But they support the braces well and have the heel lift I need. And they aren't ugly orthopedic shoes! Lol A bit pricey but they last for quite awhile.
