Sketcher
 
 
8/7/2010 This date is an estimate
I had on sketcher shoes. I was helping my daughter do some errands. When to visit my Mom at the hospital came back to my daughters home to stay with her and my grandson. I was just returning to my car to get my grandson out of the car and I stepped down wrong. I turned my right ankle, when I went to put my left foot down, it also turned. I broke two bones in my right foot and my left ankle.
The left ankle did not heal right away and I had to have a plate and screws put in during a surgery.
The weather was clear and very nice outside. I had been wearing the sketcher shoes and had no problem before this. Although one of my co-workers had made the comment that it looked like my feet were rolling.
I don't want to cause any problems. I threw out the shoes after the accident. I just wanted to report this in case someone else had any problems. I was out of work for four months and will always have some pain in my ankle.
