Wow!! I’m finding life without a brace on my leg to be rather eye-opening!! It’s liberating, yet painful at times. And while it’s terrific that I don’t have to wear a brace, it’s challenging to find shoes that I can wear (besides tennis shoes).
The problem? Well, first of all, I don’t have much feeling in my foot. Second, because my achilles tendon was lengthened, it’s now sort of stuck in a 90 degrees angle. Some types of shoes require your foot to be able to bend/flex in different ways, and my foot/ankle is just sort of stiff. SO…I need shoes that will sort of strap to my foot. LOL! Third, I don’t feel steady enough to wear ANY type of heel, other than a wedge, and shoes like that don’t really give me the support I need anyway…*SIGH* To be honest, I’ve ALWAYS been to clumbsy to wear much of a heel (even before all this happened with my foot)!!! ROFL
Imagine my dilemma when, after wearing nothing but a walking boot and tennis shoes, Lance mentioned going to prom with him!! My first thought was, “OMG! What kind of shoes am I going to wear?” My mom went shoe shopping with me and we found the perfect shoes!! PLUS!! Recently, I came across these cute houseshoes/slippers that this sweet lady I used to know made for me (Lance thinks they look like old lady shoes, but I think they look adorable)!! Check both of my new FOOT GEAR out!
