Wearing hinged afo

Thought I would get some advice, I have been wearing an hinged afo brace for two yrs now for ankle instability issues and have noticed over the yrs even after wearing it full time the first few months I noticed my calf got smaller and my ankle feels weaker. I have to get a new brace made here soon but I was wondering is this normal also would I be able to switch to a tall solid afo instead cause the hinged one is destroying my work boots and shoes have to replace like every 6 months haha.
