The best shoe for AFOs
My daughter has worn Hatchbacks shoes over her AFOs for 8 or 9 years now. Recently we bought the Ava shoe for the first time, and really like it. In addition to fitting properly with no sliding around, the shoe is very easy to put on due to the wider opening and lower sides than the sneaker. Both this and the other style fit well and do not slip. This is a benefit for children that don't walk well anyway.
As my daughter approaches adolescence, we are waiting eagerly for Hatchbacks to expand into adult sizes.
I found the quality of the shoe to be cheap! Not to menition the shoe wasn't nearly wide enough. I've called a few time and left a message, I never received a response.
grandaughter is in love
Your sizing chart is amazing -I measured the orthotics and the shoes fit perfectly
Finally a perfect fit
My darling 2 year old with spastic diplegia is finally wearing nice shoes that fit. Thank you so much for this wonderful service and product. We will be purchasing more in the future.
way too big
First off, I have to say that their shipping was tremendous. I ordered the shoes on Christmas Eve thinking they'd not be sent until Monday, and the arrived The day after Christmas! Bravo! Though, before I ordered, I called the costumer service to ask some questions, and was told they'd call me within 24 hours. they didn't call back until the middle of the next week (I believe)
That being said, I'm super disappointed that these shoes are so big. I ordered the smallest size they sell for my toddler who just got her first pair of smo's. I knew I was taking a chance on ordering because her feet are so small, but hoped they'd work. They are huge! Her feet are small from not walking due to low muscle tone. Where the heck am I going to find shoes for this girl? It's great that these shoes work so well with the braces, but a big miss fire by the company for not selling sizes small enough for the kids to wear them. I was also expecting the shoe to have more range of motion, meaning the back pull back further. It's a tight elastic that holds them together. As well, the Velcro straps are too big for the holes so they don't move easily. Overall, a miss for my daughter. I'm bummed, I had high hopes.
So excited about these shoes!
My 5 year Daughter was born with bilateral clubfeet and has always been in casts or braces. As she gets older it is harder to find shoes that fit her AFOs and do not make her feet look like Frankenstein's. When she opened the box and saw these shoes she was thrilled and put them on right away.
We love the ability to loosen the back and the sizing worked out perfectly. Thank you!
Love the Mary Janes! Just a little snug with her braces on. Only suggestion I'd make is to reverse the velcro on the straps so that the hooks are on the top and the loops are on the bottom. As it is the exposed hooks trap lint
Great choice for my daughter!
We've just received these shoes and my daughter (who wears AFO braces) absolutely loves them! We've been looking for elegant looking shoes that would fit her AFOs for a long time, and these are the first shoes that actually look good. We were also pleasantly surprised that the shipping to Poland, Europe only took about ten days (we expected the parcel to arrive around Christmas ;) ). Thank you so much!
Good looking shoes
We love your Mary Jane shoe. We were thrilled when this style of shoe came out. My daughter hated the holidays because all orthotic shoes looked the same , plain bulky , and ugly.
My daughter wears two different shoe sizes. The left foot is a youth 3, and the right foot a toddler 10 1/2.
I use to have to buy two pairs of shoes in different sizes. She only wears a brace on the smaller foot now ,because it won't grow. The smaller foot with the brace fits comfortably in the size 3.
My biggest concern is , once the larger foot grows to a 4 , will your shoes still accommodate her???
She won't wear any other shoe but the Mary Jane shoe. She loves this particular style.
She is twelve years old and needs to keep having a cool shoe to walk in.
