“What shoes are best for Plantar Fasciitis?” We get this question every day.
The easy answer is… shoes that aren’t flat 🥿.
Typically, shoes with a raised heel 👞👡👢👠🥾and arch support are best for Plantar Fasciitis.
When your heel 👣 is raised and your arch is supported, there’s less tension on the plantar fascia ligament.
It’s not as if a good pair of shoes will stop the pain 😣, but they can help to lessen it.
Women 🙍🏼♀️should consider wearing wedges👢, raised heels 👠or running shoes👟.
Men 👱🏼♂️will feel best wearing running 👟shoes or boots🥾.
Ecco is a good brand for men’s dress 👞shoes.
In both cases, quality sandals 👡such as Birkenstock, Vionic or similar are best for home use.
One of the most important things for most foot 👣problems is to wear shoes 👟or sandals 👡when standing on hard surfaces such as the kitchen floor.
If you are wearing good supportive shoes👞 and your heel pain doesn’t lessen, don’t make the mistake of thinking another brand of shoe👟 is needed.
There isn’t a shoe 👠brand that cures plantar fasciitis.
Again, if you’ve had pain 😩in your heel(s) 👣for more than 3 months 📅, you’re risking having an easier condition to treat become one that can take several months 🗓to cure.
Make good shoes 🥾part of your home 🏡 remedy for plantar fasciitis. If there’s no change after a couple of weeks, having us 🏥 get to the root of the problem is your best bet.
