  • Clothes

    Hi, I have been T3-T4 incomplete for 3 years. Now I have an ablebodied friend. I would like to wear some pretty clothes because my friend loves it. I thought I would try my old shoes, which I wore before the injury. They have high heels, but when I talked with my friend, she said me it's not good. I tried to put them on, but I can't positionate my legs on the chair to feel comfortably. Do you have any tips? Thanks.

    Time to go shopping! I really like the Mary Jane-type flat shoes - they work the best for me.

      You need to accomodate for any swelling you may have, and it is difficult to keep heels on foot pedals. Try something with an ankle strap in an extra-wide size, usually 1 size larger than pre-injury, and go for a more clunky heel instead of spikes. There are some good places to look on-line.Here are some companies I am familiar with:
