Braces and AFOs are devices that are worn on the feet and ankles inside a shoe. They are designed to stabilize the foot and ankle area. Braces assist with healing from injury or can protect from further injury. Braces come in many styles and sizes and are used for injuries and also chronic conditions. Braces can take up an enormous amount of space in a shoe. Finding a shoe that will accommodate a brace can be a big challenge. Pandere Shoes are ideal with many braces because they provide expansion in the midfoot and ankle areas. Pandere closed toe shoes also have removable insoles for orthotics or braces which can be important if you wear a brace.
