5 Best Shoes for Plantar Fasciitis

5 Best Shoes for Plantar Fasciitis

20th Apr 2020

We've found your saviour! The best shoes for plantar fasciitis that cushion and comfort your feet!

Plantar fasciitis is the inflammation of the plantar fascia, a thick band of tissue connecting your heel to the front of your foot. Your heel guards the fascia but we all know being barefoot does not give your feet the same support, protection or cushioning that shoes do.


Running or even walking barefoot on hard surfaces for long periods of time are the main causes of strain to your fascia. However, if you already have plantar fasciitis, walking barefoot on hard surfaces can worsen the condition and delay the healing process. To help prevent plantar fasciitis from occurring, shoes should be well-cushioned and provide support to the foot. Read more about Plantar Fasciitis in our blog, 'Everything About Feet'.

Look no further for cushioned shoes! Sole Bliss has the best shoes for plantar fasciitis!

Each pair of Sole Bliss shoes have a supportive underfoot cushioning that helps distribute and absorb the harsh impact of walking on hard flooring, making our shoes the best shoes for plantar fasciitis. Alongside the supportive cushioning, studies have shown that switching between different heel heights strengthens your calf muscles! Avoid tightness in your calf as this can make plantar fasciitis pain worse, but a strong calf can help reduce the likeliness of developing plantar fasciitis.
