If you are an active athlete and suffer from plantar fasciitis, be sure to always wear shoes that are designed particularly for your chosen sport.

Plantar fasciitis is a painful foot condition resulting in heel pain. It is commonly called heel spurs. Plantar fasciitis can also cause pain to the foot arch. Some people experience the pain of plantar fasciitis in only one foot.

      Acorn slippers are very good- the kind with the arch support. Wearing them around the house helped because going barefoot and cleaning house barefoot kept making my plantar symptoms worse. Also Rockport shoes really helped. I wore them all summer. The sandals are nice enough to wear to work. I don't work somewhere that I can wear tennis shoes.
