Even though, if you think about it, folks with debilitating plantar fasciitis heel pain would want to wear plantar fasciitis shoes, not everyone who has the condition is aware of what is causing their foot and heel pain.

Plantar fasciitis is a condition that involves the inflammation of the plantar fascia, which is the connecting tissue that goes from the heel to the toe bones. It is a very common condition for those who naturally have high or low arches.

The good news for those of us who do experience plantar fasciitis is that it is possible to treat simply by changing the shoes we wear. This should not be something we do randomly, though. We must make a permanent shift in shoe type, especially our every-day shoes.

Even though it would seem that avoiding pressure on the aching area will help, walking is actually one of the best ways to treat the condition and decrease the pain associated with plantar fasciitis. This is because walking stretches the fascia and provides relief.

However, this is also why you will need the proper shoes. Walking with the wrong kind of shoes will make the problem worse rather than help it. It could even result in heel spurs or other foot problems.

No More Cheap Shoes For Plantar Fasciitis Sufferers

Once you determine that you have plantar fasciitis, the first thing you will want to do is get good orthopedic shoes. No more discount shoe stores for you.

It may be a good idea to find a specialty shoe store that carries the right kind of shoes to help your problem. Be careful, though. Make sure you explain your problem to one of the people there who is familiar with plantar fasciitis. The main focus for some of these shops is to sell you custom orthotics, which cost hundreds of dollars.

These stores can be amazing. They may not carry every size in every style, but they can fit you properly and order the best shoe for you.

The shoes listed below are specifically designed for plantar fasciitis.
