i wear an Custom AFO for a club foot. will it fit into the abbey sport casuals? I have a difficult time finding a light weight, comfortable shoe that also offers support for the foot. If you have any other suggestions please let me know! Thanks

    Hello and thank you for your question.

    Is your AFO plastic? Typically plastic AFO’s are bulkier in size making them difficult to fit into most commercial shoes. Some AFOs are now made of carbon fiber which is thinner and lower profile allowing them to fit in more shoes.

    Without seeing your AFO, I would guess that it would not fit into the Abbey – however if you can find a local shoe store that carries Aetrex footwear I would recommend trying them on with the AFO. Aetrex does have other shoes that have an adjustable heel counter which allows for more room to fit an AFO if necessary.

    I hope this helps!
