Just to mention the Piedro boots do offer some amazing support for the ankle for children but only when wearing them.
As soon as they are off they are back to square one so they dont help resolve the issues as such.
We recently tried Euan in some trainers that were very high on the ankle and offered some great support to Euan when walking and we find them better than the Piedros as they are not as bulky as the weight on the piedros can be an issue on its own and cause little kiddies to fall,it honeslty looks like they are walking around with bricks on the shoes.
Ill get the name and shoe type tommorow for you,they are Nike but ill get the exact name so you can look at them yourself.

they are special boots that have inserts that are moulded from his feet so they fit perfectly to help his bones to grow straighter, look a bit like bovver boots lol matt loves his, they have a catalogue with all different ones to choose from.

the buggy is big, we got a mobility car when we had it as its not wide just long but it is very strong which is needed if he is a bouncer. Do you get the mobility part of DLA?

this might be why they suited matt as he didnt get them till he was about 14 (and do need to get in touch about if he needs more as had this pair for 18months) cant get him to wear trainers though as he likes the weight of the things so if i cant get anymore of them will have to try steel toecaps and keep away from him lol

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.

If you cant get them on the Nhs for whatever reason you can buy Piedros,costly though at a basic starting price of around £80....
