I am at a disadvantage since I can't see the extent of your contractures. You might consider an AFO (ankle foot orthosis) which would be made by an orthotist. Also a possible consideration is a plantar fascial night splint. We do not have a great deal of success getting insurance companies to pay for these, however.
Have you spoken to a physical therapist about your concerns? That might be a start.
