I wore a boot (aka Aircast or CAM) with my ankle injury. I found the actual Aircast brand to be quite affordable and actually a lot less out of pocket cost then if I would have gotten it through my insurance. I hadn’t yet met my deductible, but even if I had - the equipment company markup was such that the co-insurance would have exceeded the Amazon purchase price.
This is the one I used. It helped stabilize my ankle as well:

Any thoughts on what you might use?
Thanks on the username, lol. The shoes are true to size, plus they come in wide widths. My true foot size (atleast before the accident) is 8 wide, but I usually purchased 9s for the extra space. I bought these shoes in an 8.5 wide. Due to occassional swelling I went up half a size, but I could've done the 8 wide. They feel great on their own, but even better with an orthotic insert. I feel like we're in the same boat. Will we ever wear normal shoes again! Good luck!
Also, I ended up buying this:
I use this occasionally for really bad days of if I have an huge amount of walking to do. It's the least obtrusive boot I've found. Bootcut jeans will even fit over it and most time people actually don't notice if they're not paying attention.
