Understanding “FIT” notes:
ALL KURU shoes are sold in US sizing. IF the “FIT” note says “1/2 size small”, you should purchase a 1/2 size larger than your normal size (e.g if wear an 8, purchase an 8.5). If the note says “1/2 size big," then purchase a 1/2 size smaller than your normal size.
Common Causes of Heel Pain in Women
Plantar fasciitis is the leading cause of heel pain in the US. Excessive wear and tear on the band of tissue underneath our feet—our plantar fascia—can result in the characteristic symptom of plantar fasciitis: heel pain.
Achilles tendonitis is a common overuse injury that occurs when the Achilles tendon—which attaches our heel bone to our calf muscle—works beyond its strength, resulting in inflammation of the tendon.
Heel fat pad degradation is especially common in older adults. Our feet have a natural cushioning system, called the heel’s fat pad. This layer of padding helps protect our heel bone from impact. Without the proper footwear support, the heel bone has little protection from hard, unforgiving surfaces, leading to a loss of the fat pad over time.
Effective Ways to Reduce Heel Pain
To keep heel pain at bay, there a few daily habits women can add to their routine to take care of their feet for the long haul including wearing women's shoes for heel pain that deliver superior heel cushioning, arch support and shock absorption, avoiding walking barefoot on hard surfaces to protect the heel's fat pad, and maintaining a regular exercise and foot stretching routine to keep the plantar fascia healthy and happy.
