5 Essential tips for finding the best sneaker

Updated on April 10, 2016

There are several things you might need to keep in mind when looking for the best pair of sneaker for Plantar Fasciitis.

Get the right sizes

Many sneakers for Plantar Fasciitis tend to be small, which can intensify the pain even further causing blisters, pinching among other problems. If the sneaker is also too large, you won’t have the balance and the stability needed to correct over-pronation, which is the leading factor for Plantar Fasciitis. Make sure you get the right fit and please understand that human feet are a tad bigger usually in the evening. So, if you are looking for a new pair of shoes at this time of the day, you must ensure to get enough space for your toes.

Must be comfortable

Remember that the best shoes for Plantar Fasciitis should always feel comfortable. Regardless of how well a sneaker fits you, if it isn’t comfortable, then wearing it will be a total burden. Many shoes designed for Plantar Fasciitis features extra cushioning, this might be good for you, but make sure you consider other factors such as the size of the toe box and the design of the shoe.

Identify your running style

94 Percent of runners and those involved in moderate exercises usually hit the ground with their heel first, so an ideal sneaker should have plenty of heal padding to support such impact. If the initial contact is the forefoot, you would not need a shoe with many cushions in the heel, would you? Get a pair that has most of its cushion in front.

Identify your active level

The other thing is the activity level. Technically speaking, we have three types of activity levels i.e. very active, active and sedentary. If you fall under 'very active' category, you must get a shoe built to supports your movement, offers extra support and cushioning. If you are not so active, getting a sneaker with support and excellent cushioning is more than enough. People who are sedentary do not need a top of the line shoe to keep the pain free but may require a comfortable one.

Know your arch

The shape of your arch usually determines whether you will roll to the inside of the foot (pronate) or you will roll outside of the foot, or remain neutral. Under-pronators are very rare, but many people are over pronators which lead to lots of unwanted injuries. By getting to know your arch, you are more likely doing to avoid most of these injuries. If you have a flat foot, for instance, you will need a shoe with more stability, but with a higher arch, you will need a shoe that is more curved.
