Why Does Plantar Fasciitis Hurt

Recent Reviews

  • "After decades of practicing as a physician, I have seen a lot of different products designed to solve health problems. My pair of Kuru's was the only pair of shoes I wore traipsing around Europe. Since I got home and started playing tennis with other shoes I've developed plantar fasciitis. My Kuru's are by far the most comfortable shoe as I deal with this condition. Nothing matches the Kuru's for comfort. Kuru is the #1 shoe that has helped my Plantar Fasciitis.”

  • "I am a pharmacist who has been suffering with plantar fasciitis for more than a year. I received my 1st pair of Kuru shoes a little over a month ago. I will never wear another shoe. I was simply amazed on what it did for my problem. I noticed the difference within a few days and now I go some days without any pain at all. All I can say is thank you for making such a fine product. You now have a customer for life and a good source of referral."

  • "I was diagnosed with Plantar Fasciitis, nothing has helped. The best relief I ever got from any product would last less than 20 minutes, then my pain was back. I got my Kuru's on Friday, and within 20-30 minutes of wearing them, my feet didn't hurt. I woke up Saturday, no pain. Sunday, no pain. Today, I've been on my feet all day from 7am and my feet still don't hurt. My Kuru shoes are the only thing that has gotten rid of my Plantar Fasciitis pain."

Plantar Fasciitis is no fun. This foot condition causes significant pain when walking, standing, or sometimes even when sitting. You have probably experienced the sharp, stabbing pain that hurts when you walk with plantar fasciitis. This pain seems to never end.

What Makes Plantar Fasciitis so Painful?

Have you ever asked yourself, "Why does it hurt so much to walk with plantar fasciitis?". Plantar Fasciitis is the result of inflammation of the plantar fascia. The plantar fascia is a fibrous tissue that connects the bottom of your heel to the ball of your foot. When the plantar fascia is over-stretched, it can tear. These micro-tears lead to sharp pain which makes plantar fasciitis hurt so much.

How to Solve Plantar Fasciitis Pain

Most solutions for Plantar Fasciitis are temporary and cannot be worn throughout the day. Sure you can ice your foot, but you can't go about your day with an ice pack wrapped around your foot! This is why it hurts so much to walk with plantar fasciitis.

What if there was a shoe you could wear, all day long, that could offer all the support and comfort you needed throughout the day? Imagine how much relief you would feel. Imagine how much more you could accomplish without being sidetracked by throbbing foot pain.
