sandals and cerebral palsy:how I overcome sensitive feet

Do you struggle to wear sandals because of your cerebral palsy? This is just one follow-up post to bare feet and cerebral palsy. That post in itself sparked a lot of emails and discussion so I thought I would write this post.

My personal experience with sandals

Sandals haven’t always been something that I have worn nor was it something my body took kindly to in the early days.  It was an adjustment period just to simply stand I suspect that this was due to my feet sensitivity.

Needless to say I slowly adjusted little by little to this new thing and now I am in my bare feet. Someone asked if I still have some feet sensitivity. The only issue is that  I don’t like things between my toes so it makes drying between them an issue. Also I have noticed in my bare feet and sandals I tend to roll my ankles less then I do in my shoes

About lifeofthedifferentlyabled

Laura Forde founded her blog through my eyes: my life with cerebral palsy in December 2009 out of a great need she had, realizing that there was a vast gap in firsthand accounts of what life was like living with Cerebral Palsy: she knew then that the only way to see this reflected online was to create the change herself and thus this blog was born Laura was born four months premature, weighing a mere one pound three ounces and given ten percent odds for survival. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of three. After graduating from college, she continued writing and doing what she loves to do most; speaking to groups about her life experiences and sharing what she has learned from her journey. Her blog lifeofthedifferentlyabled was created after discovering that the online community lacked the voice of people in her situation. In its first year, the site saw over 20,000 hits from all over the world. Her readers are from all walks of life; some with disabilities, parents of children, professionals, and others who seek to gain a better understanding of the world of the differently abled.

    My little girl with CP, 5, likes to wear sandals. I guess because I determined when she was in braces the first summer that she was going to be ABLE to wear them and fashioned a pair about her braces, including cutting toes off socks. Thankfully for her she still likes that as well as going barefoot. (It’s hard to sometimes get her into her shoes/braces in the mornings as a result!) Although she has sensitive feet, I think starting younger to add different experiences or sensations, has made a difference.

  2. Hi Lisa your comment is intriguing to me what type of sandal does your daughter wear? I personally prefer a sport sandal with a heal strap and straps across the top of the foot this seems to offer me the best support in a sandal
