    That's a relief for you Bern. I've got to keep my boot on for at 4 weeks but I'm allowed to weight bear now! As for the shoe situation I think I'll have to Invest in some more to keep up with Barry!

    Hi Pink,

    I'm glad you're allowed to weight bear. That'll make a
    difference to you.
    Happy shoe browsing - ha ha!

    Hi Pink,

    If I can be so bold as to recommend wearing shoes, or better still, hiking boot type footwear, which will give your ankles good support. They tend not to come in bright sparkly designs, but you can't beat them for support...

    I buy jazzy laces to pimp up my hiking boots

    I just want to keep you and the girls safe!!

    Love Ellie.

    Thanks ellie. I have to wear splints on both feet due to drop foot. These are quite supportive. Not very comfortable though.

    Do you know I was thinking the same thing. I'm sick of designers presuming people who have orthotic problems are the elderly!! I'm sure they can make trendy shoes which are supportive and easy to put on. I've been coming up with designs in my head!!

    As Ellie says the walking boots give great support to your ankles and I wore them often when I was more mobile but why do they have to be so heavy? If you wore them all day you would be so tired. When you come up with a design Pink make sure you also include a male version as I don’t think Terry would be happy wearing red ones lol.

    I used to wear some 3 inch platform shoes, Barry;

    That made me 6 foot 3, and people weren't so tall way back then.

    I fell in love with them, the main colour was a dark gold gloss but they had bands of green, gold and red running around the soles.

    I reckon my dad through them out, shame because they would have been great for a laugh.

    Love Terry
