Footwear for splints

SianOgSianOg Member Posts: 11 Connected
Hi all

I am looking for some advice/experience. My 2 year old daughter with PVL and diplegic CP has recently been given splints to try. We are very keen to try them HOWEVER are really struggling with finding suitable footwear that the splints actually fit in! We have tried lots of different styles and sizes but none actually fit. She is a size 4.5 without splints and we were trying a size 7.5 on which still didn't fit. Having spoke  to our physio and orthotist they have said it just has to be a 'normal' shoe/trainer. I am just wondering whether anyone could share any experience with this? Any Footwear which they currently use with splints? Help will be much appreciated. TIA. Sian
