So here I am crying on the floor of a Famous Footwear while JT runs up and down the aisle laughing and flopping and tripping. After trying it their way for way too long, we went against most everything they told us. I bought two pairs of black Converse All Stars. One an 8 and one a 6. I love them, JT loves them....but now we have two unused shoes. I don't like to waste anything but I know it's a long shot. Can anyone use a left size 6 or a right size 8?

So we just got JT's correct DAFO (they messed up twice) and we went to get shoes for him. I am totally into shoes and I was really excited about getting him some new ones. My excitement turned to despair as we tried on shoe after shoe in 5 different stores. JT just grew out of size 5 but his DAFO makes his left foot an 8. Both of his therapists have insisted that we only buy 1 pair of size 8 shoes, that buying two different sizes was ridiculous. They also said to look for sturdy shoes. Sturdy shoes are ugly. JT has the thinnest feet known to man, size 8s just flop around on his right foot for a few minutes before they fall off.
