These shoes have been wonderful for my son. He used to complain of pain on his legs and would constantly want to take off his shoes. His other shoes were from another brand and they felt heavier also. He can keep his shoes now almost all day without complaining. Thank you hatchbacks for making such a great product. I hope you guys can make bigger sizes as my child is wearing your last size available.
AFO eases in to shoe. Best shoe for that we've had so far

My little guy drags his foot and in less than a week, he's working on a hole in the toe. Having an option with rubber up around the toe, might make a huge difference to some families. Otherwise, these shoes have made getting dressed for my little guy so much easier. It's nice to not have that argument every morning.
Best product ever!

My child has had the same pair of Freestyle Hatchbacks since 2008 and for a number of years she could weight bear for short periods of time so they have lasted a long, long time. I was so delighted to see they still had the size in stock in the Eclipse style which look exactly the same to me as the Freestyle. I ordered the pink/white and the grey/lime which while the Seahawks are playing she wears on Seahawk Blue Friday. This is an excellent product and hope to see the line continue to expand. Sandals please!!

Good prise. Perfect for afo.
My girl can walk only with them! With other shoes she have no balance.
But- way dont you make more colors and desinds??? She is so sad she cant choos from a larg vrity off shoes. You should make them more prity and more options to choose from. Maybe with lights...
They are kids, let them have kids shoes!!
Fit great and look stylish!

We love Hatchbacks and have been buying them for years. These are our favorite shoes yet. My son has been getting so many compliments - everyone especially loves the lime green lining!
Best orthotic shoes

These are the only shoes that work with my son's orthotics. They hold up well and look great.

These shoes are the greatest thing since sliced bread!! We always have struggled to find a pair of shoes that would fit my son's SMO's, but weren't 10 sizes too big. Look no more, these shoes are worth every penny.
hatchbacks for kids with AFOs
Posted by Unknown on 23rd Aug 2016
The shoe is well constructed and attractive but as a parent buying shoes for use with AFOs it doesn't function as well as I expected. I was hoping the back had more flex to make it easier to get into but for that purpose it really isn't a lot different than a regular shoe. Also without removable layers it may not work for AFOs that require more depth.

Finally a shoe that is absolutely perfect for my son. Light weight, comfortable, wide and they look really nice too.
