I have been living with foot drop due to Multiple Sclerosis for several years. Even though I tried other braces, including one custom made for me, I had to hike less and stopped running completely because of the foot drop. A friend introduced me to the SpryStep and I worked with an orthotist to get the right shoe, insert and fit. Even though I have only had the SpryStep a short time I have hiked hundreds of miles with it. I am currently planning a hike of the 2,200 mile Appalachian Trail. I’m also signed up for a marathon this fall. The SpryStep offers a great combination of flexibility and strength to keep my stride balanced and comfortable. I’m looking forward to many more adventures ahead because of the SpryStep!
