How to choose the best shoes for plantar fasciitis
Plantar Fasciitis is a relatively common and painful condition where the tissue connecting your toes to your heel on the sole of your foot is inflamed. One thing that can help is wearing the best shoes for plantar fasciitis. There are some key things to look for when buying plantar fasciitis shoes for women, and they are especially useful if you don’t want to sacrifice style for comfort.
Because plantar fasciitis is located on the bottom of your foot, arch support is a must. Check that your shoes mould to your feet, preventing any extra stretch or pressure. For this reason, Birkenstocks are a great option. They are one of the best sandals for plantar fasciitis due to the high level of support from their orthopedic footbed.

Heels may be the last thing you want to wear when you have sore feet, but there is actually some evidence to suggest that a 2 - 3 inch heel can alleviate some of the tension in your calf so that the muscle isn’t pulling on the ligaments and tissue in your feet. The key here is to not go over 3 inches high with your heels, choose something like these low and fashionable ankle boots. If you’re intent on wearing high heels with plantar fasciitis, make sure they have a wide base like these lace up heels. This will give you a sturdy platform so that you aren’t teetering and flexing your already inflamed foot muscles.
The more comfortable your shoes are, the better your feet will feel. Make sure you get the right size for you, and choose shoes that properly fit the width of your foot. These wide fitting shoes are a good choice for those with wide feet, and they have a rounded toe to ensure that no part of your foot is cramped or uncomfortable. You also want your shoes to have a padded sole that is light so that your feet are cushioned but not lugging around a heavy clog all day. For a great padded shoe that is also lightweight, check out these stylish lace ups.
Lastly, if you have orthotics for your plantar fasciitis make sure you choose shoes that will fit them. We have a good range of orthopedic friendly shoes, including these everyday flats.
Choosing the right shoes to ease your plantar fasciitis is simple once you know what to look for. Keep an eye out for all these options to help your feet feel better in no time.
