hi has anyone tried hatchbacks shoes for kids with afo's, i'm thinking of buying some but didn't want to buy if they're no good.
thanks
anne
p.s
if you have where did you get them from uk or usa
LOVE LOVE LOVE Hatchbacks. They are the longest lasting shoe I have found, so EASY to take on and off - no more struggling. I am confident you will love them. I bought them on line from the web site - no problems, they have a size chart for ordering that was easy to understand and use. I had such a problem with shoes "breaking down" at the heel and becoming so hard to get on - Hatchbacks are terrific. My son wears afo's with an insert and his feet are wide to begin with - they fit great.

hi annie,
my problem is that over here the company that sells them charges more than double the us company,
but now that there is a uk seller i can't get them direct from hatchbacks in the us, they won't do it.
they tell me they would have to charge me import tax and ridiculous postage charges ect
and that would make them much more expensive than over here anyway.

personally i thought that they were just fobbing me off,
i can't win.
:confused:
[QUOTE=apddopey;3353117]We have used the Hatchbacks and I think they are great. You just have to be carefull because not all of the hatchbacks are made for braces, only a few select are. Right now we are using Advance Comfort Footware. They look like a nice "normal" tennis shoe. The insole is layered so that you only have to take out a little at a time to get that perfect fit. Just my two cents:)[/QUOTE]

hatchbacks are twice as expensive in the uk than they are in the US
they won't ship over here, so the uk supplier is the only place i could go to.
i would love to hear where else i could get nice shoes to go over a 2yr olds afo.
she only wears it on one legs hence me thinking the hatchbacks elite were the perfect shoe,
if anyone knows anything i could try please let me know, so that she can be just the same as her friends
thanks
anne
