one of my close friends has foot drop and she has struggled over the last two years, trying on over 1,000 pairs of shoes, with very limited success finding something that works for her because nothing is made for people with foot drop that combines function and fashion.

I would love to hear from the community if anyone has had similar challenges, and whether you have found anything that works (especially sandals and dress shoes). If you have had similar challenge, what is most important to you when you are looking for shoes?

thank you!

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Department of Arthosis are making special splints for foot drop.Just consult arthosis department. We are seeing patients who are improving alot while using those splints.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
