Hello would anyone be able to recommend any companies that sell childrens orthotic shoes? the ones I have researched on the internet are not very nice and extremely expensive.

Many thanks in advance.

    Hi Chakka,

    I don't know if this will help you but there is a website, armbraces.com, that deals in children's and some adult orthotic shoes. They call them Hatchback shoes. They seem to have a little more style than other sites I looked into, when I was looking for something I could use for myself. I recently started wearing afos.

    I realized that my needs could be met simply by enlarging my sneaker size to accommodate the afo and buying that size in a wide width. My new search is for some kind of winter boot that I can use when the snow is flying and I must be out somewhere. I have a post up on this elsewhere.

    I know that mail ordered purchases are not always the best, especially for items like these, but I hope you find something suitable and let everyone know if you do.

    Good luck.
