I have one leg shorter, and nothing was ever done about this until I ended up in so much pain all up and down my body at age 58 and was about to be placed in a wheelchair. I finally got a Dr. to pay attention to this and say I need shoes with 3/8" lift on the one shoe. Now I have to buy the shoes, take them to the prosthetic department and get them to add the lift. Problem is, they reject about half the shoes I take to them, and I'm wasting time and money trying to find what kind of shoes can have a lift added and which cannot. Even some of the expensive orthopedic shoes cannot be altered. They can't seem to tell me how to choose shoes - they just say "these shoes can't be done because they have "foam", "bubbles" or "wafers" within the sole. But I can't see the inside of a sole when I buy it, so how can I tell which shoes are good for this??? The only ones he said definitely will work are hte all-leather soles, but I want some more comfortable soles. I asked if they have a list of the "good " shoes, but he said No, he just knows from 35 yrs of experience. How can I find out how to tell which shoes can accept lifts added to the sole? :mad:Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
