Do you have sharp stabbing pains in the bottoms of your feet, which are more prominent in the morning? You may have plantar fasciitis which is the inflammation of the tissue running along the bottom of your foot connecting the heel bone to the toes.
This pain can be unbearable, but finding the best shoes to help your feet feel better may be the key. Below is a list of the top shoes for plantar fasciitis relief:
1. Men's Asics Gel-Kayano & Women's Asics Gel-Kayano (best overall)
2. Saucony Kinvara (best budget)
3. Men's Brooks Adrenaline GTS (best for distance running)
4. Women's Hoka Bondi (best cushioning)
Ultimately, the keys to feeling better in your shoes are stability and cushion. Stop by one of our locations in Longview, Rockwall or Texarkana, for a free foot consultation with one of our shoe experts. There is a 100% satisfaction guarantee with every shoe purchase.
On top of the proper shoes, there are multiple treatments to ease your symptoms: resting, stretching, and massaging your feet. When you start having pain, you should stop your activity immediately and avoid resting on concrete if at all possible. Also, before you get up for the day, it may be beneficial for you to stretch your muscles- sit up in your bed and grab one foot, pull it towards you while making a rolling motion. Do several repetitions and then switch feet. Lastly, pressing the bottom part of your foot in circular motions where the pain is most apparent could help alleviate the pain as well.
