What shoes are best for Plantar Fasciitis?
Okay, a few weeks ago I was diagnosed with Plantar Fasciitis in my left heel, a problem I've been dealing with for a good long time. (Feels like a giant ice pick is shoved up my heel every time I take a step).
I've been look for a good pair of shoes that aren't very painful when I walk. The Podiatrist sold me orthotics, but they are made of hard plastic. They help with the PF, but they leave both of my feet hurting badly by the end of the day.
From the research I've done the shoes need very good arch support, must bend at the toes, have strong uppers to hold the food in place and the soles must be stiff enough not to twist needlessly, otherwise it could cause pronation or more PF pain.
I don't want to spend tons of money buying shoes looking for the right pair. So far, the only shoes that seem to help even a little are the Skechers Go Run. But the soles are very thin and aren't great for standing around.
If anyone has some experienced suggestions, I'm listening. Thanks.
