AFO question

Molly Pitcher C.P.O.

Dear list, my question has two parts:
1. What has your experience been with wearers of poly AFO’s experiencing
severe cold even in warm weather. Any solutions? Is a laminated AFO less
cold conducting?
On this particular person, he was switched to a conventional AFO and the cold
problem was rectified…now for the second part of my question
2. He wants to wear a sneaker. Does anyone know of a sneaker that would work
with a stirrup? We’ve cut into plenty of sneakers and they are often hollow
and unsuitable for stuirrup attachment.
As ever, thanks for your suggestions. Molly Pitcher, C.P.O.
