Default AFO socks: Where to get them?

Hi,
I used to post here as CPGal82. Anyway, the socks I am currently using for my AFOs are getting too tight (I've gained some weight) and I heard about some socks specifically for AFO users..Well, I lost the link to the website....Does anyone know which one I am talking about or how to go about ordering a few pairs? Thanks for any help.

Map locator for a practitioner in your area that you can order them from.

ew.. I hope that like works. But that's supposed to take you to Kingsley.

I don't think either of them sell to the public. But your orthotist should be able to get you some.

I am so sorry to jump in and throw all that at you.

I go by Bear most of the time. I usually hang out in the bipolar forum, but I work in a place that makes braces and stuff. Nice to meet you.

Ah- one more.

Default AFO Socks

We found a really nice place to get AFO Socks, both seemless and seemed, at a reasonable price. My 5 Year Old is a Habitual Toe Walker and Shriners in Tampa, Florida is helping her. The Website is KeepingPace .com
Good Luck. The Shoes are very good also.

Speaking of Shoes, if you get AFO shoes at "answer2" affilliates, Shriners offers a form you can just fax/mail into the company, and get the shoes for 28$ instead of $60. We love the folks at Shriners btw.

Default Toe Walker

This sounds great. We have had the wrong shoes/socks for eight months now. My 7 year old is miserable. Do you know who I contact at Shriners for this discount? Thanks, Wanda

Actually, I usually just use toe socks. Food for thought.
