In brief: Variable

Cmt usually produces a stiff, high arch foot with weak eversion strength.
Generally a cushioned shoe (for shock absorption) with a broader base (for stability) works best, although there is no "right answer".

In brief: Extradepth shoes

Charcot-marie-tooth patients ofen have foot deformities that require an extradepth shoe with an arch support or orthotic.
Many of the medical shoe stores will have a wide variety of styles and types of shoes from casual to athletic.
