Go Plae shoes are yet another option for kiddos that wear AFO’s or SMO’s. The neat thing about these shoes is that they have extra depth and you can swap out the velcro straps for longer ones so the strap really connects to the other side. Check out their line of shoes at www.goplae.com .

I have found that the Garanimal shoes from Walmart are fantastic. They are wide, have a removable insole, and are fairly stylish.
Lately I have had a run on TLSO’s for patients that have a G-tube. Here is a little trick that I do with the body socks. I take the silicone from Coyote Design and put a “blob” about the size of a 50 cent piece and then quickly use a rectangle of plastic and push the silicone into the sock. I then use a half round punch to make a nice long oval hole. Parents seem to really appreciate a hole that does not fray.
Keeping Pace has added some new shoes to the line-up. Check out their sandal and Mary Jane style.
