falling arches

I was just diagnosed with Charcot joint bilaterally. No wonder those 12 hour shifts where painful. I finally had my feet x-rayed by a podiatrist who sent me back to my MD who......The result is above. Anyhow, he told me to get rocker bottom shoes but didn't tell me what kind or if I have to wear them all the time. I sure like going barefooted. Until I can find some I have socks rolled up in my shoes. I guess that is what they are trying to do. Since I am 61 I am thinking CMT II but they want to bx my Sural nerve to find out what is causing my problem. Can you add anything. My ana was 640.

Malleoloc for lateral ankle instability. Designed to prevent inversion and eversion. Malleoloc does not restrict plantar and dorsiflexion. Excellent for sports use.
