Re: Transition from brace to just tennis shoe..
I've had better success with Merell shoes. NB have always hurt my feet. I have custom orthotics but check for some referrals on whom you choose. Turns out mine were not made correctly which got me in the bad habit of weightbearing incorrectly with my foot. Major waste of 300 hundred bucks. It all worked out as one of the orthotistd we provide business too with our paitients knew about my struggle since surgerey and re casted me for an appropriate custom orthotic free of charge. I feel blessed as this surgerey has caused major financial strains.
Flat foot reconstruction surgery 3/1/2011~ Grateful I had this surgery and feeling better every week!
