Caliper Splints and shoes

mis_understood Member Posts: 4 Listener
Hi,I am getting my 1st caliper splint on 3rd April. I got a total shock when told and left having been told to come back next week with either a trainer or a boot. I only wear dresses or skirts so it was never going to be a trainer. Through a curtain of tears I chose a pair of boots. I don't like them but I don't hate them either. 

I am in a wheelchair and need the splint to attempt to straighten my right foot which has been inverted since a stroke in 1996.

Are there any shoes that are suitable for having splints attached to them? I would really like some shoes for the summer.
