Single Shoes for Amputees 

Jenrobinson


Looking at my posts, I notice that the issue of 'shoes for amputees' has come up more than once.Though I may be at risk for seeming like a shoe fanatic (maybe I am), I have another post on this issue.

Today I was asked a great question by a person who presents with unilateral above knee amputation, without the use of a prosthesis.  "Where can we get single shoes?"  Great question.

Many stores & online sites offer this service.. the sale of single shoes.  The Amputee Coalition of America (ACA)  has a great link for this:

I didn't use a prosthesis for most of my college career.  I sure wish I had known about these resources back then!
