What Types of Shoes You Should Wear if You Have Plantar Fasciitis
Select Footwear That Provides Proper Support and Cushioning
If you have plantar fasciitis, it is important to select footwear that provides proper support and cushioning to alleviate pain and reduce any stress on your feet. Lucky Shoes carries a wide variety of shoes that help reduce the impact of all foot conditions.
Look for shoes with a cushioned sole, good arch support, and a firm heel. Avoid flat or minimal cushion styles. A few great athletic styles that Lucky Shoes carries are the Hoka Bondi 8, the New Balance 1080v12, and the New Balance 1080v12.
Motion Control Shoes
These athletic styles from Lucky Shoes have extra support and stability features to help control foot motion & provide extra support for those with plantar fasciitis. They can be helpful for people with severe pronation or flat fleet. Some great motion control styles that Lucky Shoes offers are the New Balance 860v13, Hoka Arahi 6, and Brooks Glycerin GTS 20.
It can sometimes be difficult to find a pair of casual shoes to wear when you have plantar fasciitis. At Lucky Shoes, we provide many supportive casual styles that provide great arch support such as the Dansko Franny, Aetrex Dana, and Vionic Trent. These styles all have a supportive membrane that allows people with plantar fasciitis to move comfortably in everyday life.
If you prefer sandals, look for those with good arch support, a deep heel cut, and a contoured footbed to help relieve pain from plantar fasciitis. Some great sandal styles at Lucky Shoes to choose from are the Vionic Tide II, Olukai Ohana, and Taos Trulie.
Remember to also stretch and massage your feet on a regular basis, wear shoes that fit properly, and avoid walking barefoot or wearing low support shoes. Consult with your doctor or podiatrist for more personalized recommendations.
