Sure Steppin'

Lily got her new SureSteps (orthotics) last week. They give her extra ankle support to help her with standing and walking. It took some searching and creativity to find non-lace shoes that she could wear with them (we like to avoid laces because Lily eats them...while she's wearing them...).
New Balance sells extra wide shoes, so we tried these:
Left foot with SureStep:
Right foot with SureStep:
Just 'cause I'm cute :)
Unfortunately the velcro straps weren't long enough, so we had to improvise a bit with strips of extra velcro (the black strips):
Lily doesn't mind wearing them and they do help!
I also got her a pair of Skidders shoes to go with her SureSteps, and they work too. I haven't had a chance to take pictures of those yet, but I will! They are really cute. A girl can never have too many pairs of shoes, right?? :)
