    We do this for patients with this condition in our bespoke orthopaedic shoemaking practice. We build in the carbon fibre stiffening using the semi-impregnated carbon fibre cloth combined with the resin as a filler after the footwear has been lasted and before the soles are added. We find that about 10 layers of cloth is sufficient.
    The essential other thing we do is to add a roll to the sole. As effective radius of the roll is the distance from the ankle joint axis of the foot in the footwear to the tip of the toe of the footwear, scribed from vertically above the 1st mpj. See diagram.
    An element of this is that the sole has to roll in the direction of travel rather than the centre-line of the footwear.
    I'm sorry that we have no research ourselves on this but it is a long standing practice in Germany and here in the UK. I am however grateful to have the abstract from your research to use when recommending this feature in our footwear for future patients.
