Amato and MiracleFeet Program Operations Officer Caroline Perkinson were in contact nearly every day since January 2018. “They’ve been great!” said Perkinson of her close collaboration with Fortune Footwear. Amato, in particular, was “helpful, very patient, and accommodating to our needs,” she said.
The end result is our largest shoe order yet: 15,000 pairs. With the growth of existing programs and expansion into a number of new countries, the availability of larger quantities of the MiracleFeet brace is more important than ever. The shoes will be produced at ByFoot, Fortune Footwear’s contractor in China, where they will also attach the shoe plates that slide into the bar portion of the brace. After that, the completed shoes with shoe plates will travel to Suncast in Chicago, where the bar is produced. The shoes – including the newest size zero shoe requested by our partners and designed by Fortune Footwear – will be matched up with the accompanying bar. The end result is a complete brace, ready to be shipped out to help support clubfoot treatment around the world.
Thanks to Fortune Footwear, we can continue to improve access to treatment for children born with clubfoot in the 25 countries where we work.
