Melissa has a definite point. Your shoe size does limit things.

Yeah, I mentioned my feet and he suggested drywall stilts, which I have tried but could not balance in at all. Let alone in Chewie. But he seems like he might work with me on the feet. I'm not sure.

Hah, Just got the 'official' rejection email today, on grounds of my feet.
I do plan to keep working on Chewie and trying to get stuff fixed. Just not sure exactly what I'll end up doing about the feet. Ah well.

Again? Blast it all, did they offer any advice on what to do? At least then you could make some kind of adjustment agenda.

No advice as far as the feet go, no. I still have the old list of things he recommended I change, but according to this email, it was the feet that kept me from getting approved.

Bummer Sad but for sure keep working on it.

the last troop I did my wookie feet kinda had an accident and they needed an adjustment.
I took the old boots out of the feet and installed snow board clamps.
...got them from the thrift store for $10 off of old snowboards....

They are totally adjustable so I can wear them, and so can my shoe size 14 son.
I used the 2" pink foam from the hardware store like I did last time for
my feet then sanded it at an angle so the
toes would blend in with the rest of the feet and look like Frankenstein shoes.
Not saying your look like that, but mine did until I sloped the foam and extended the heel a bit to hid the foot more.

I think that is what they are looking for....more slope.
hope that helps.
