Ellie uses DAFOs too. They go not quite up to her knees.
They do help her a lot with standing and walking but she HATES them. I think there might be some mild sensory issues going on. She can't stand to have any extra weight on her feet. It's always a fight to get her to wear them and she usually wins. (I know, I know. I'm a pushover. )
Mason has AFO's. I'm not sure what you mean by kind. They are made locally here in the Phoenix area, so they aren't name brand. They go up to the back of his knees as well. It took us 2 months to get him properly fit for them, and by then he was starting to stand more. Until recently he screamed if I put them on. I think he is ready for SMO's, but our insurance insists they won't cover them.
