hi
cant help with the boots but have you tried phoning ortho as while you can only have one pair at a time which is reasonable considering the cost and how quickly they grow out of them (when they are 18 you can have 2 pairs) they should be providing a pair if he has outgrown the ones he has especially as he is due new ones in a few weeks they might be able to rush order them

There comes a point in your life when you realize:Who matters,Who never did,Who won't anymore...And who always will..
So, don't worry about people from your past,there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future.

i do hate the NHS,my little boy had piedros & splints until he was about 5yrs old we were then told that he wasnt entitled to piedros as he had splints but can they honestly expect him to wear them all day everyday as he also has night splints?!we find it really hard to find any 'normal' shoes/boots for him as he's legs are very stiff & he cannot move his ankles he also has very wide feet,kickers have been our best option so far although its dependent on which kind & how the leather is!!i have noticed that some people are selling piedros on ebay but didnt take much notice of what sizes etc might be worth a look,good luck x
