weEBors -shoes for Epidermolysis Bullosa or E.B.
weEBors, available in pink and black were a result of a request from a parent of a child with Epidermolysis Bullosa, known as EB.
EB is a rare genetic skin disease that causes the skin to be so fragile that the slightest friction can cause severe blistering—inside and outside the body
Due to the severity of EB, weEBors do not work for all children and professional advice needs to be sought before fitting weEBors.
weEBors, are so called from the Scottish "wee" for small or short one and "Bors" for Sir Bors De Ganis, a knight of the round table whom we've tasked to be the knight in shining armour to protect the EB foot and help find a cure for EB. Bors de Ganis was the only knight survive the Quest for the Holy Grail and return to court.

Pedors High Tops evolved as a result from input from a Developmental Center in California. The high top is often fitted by care givers where keeping a shoe on the foot is a challenge. The reinforced forefoot bumper protects against damage to the shoe caused by a dragging foot.
The High Top is also fitted to adult patients with ankle instability and is wide enough to accommodate bracing worn in conjunction with the shoe.
