The Best Shoes for Heel Pain

Do you suffer from sharp heel pain? Is your heel pain constant, nagging and debilitating? Unfortunately, almost everyone will deal with heel pain at one time or another.

Sharp heel pain can happen to anyone, regardless of physical fitness, gender, or body type. In fact, active people are often at a greater risk of heel pain and heel spurs.

Many professionals suggest surgery as the only heel pain and heel spur solution. However, surgery is invasive, expensive, and has a long recovery time. What's more, your feet will never be the same after surgery, and your heel pain may still reappear.

Imagine a self-treatment for heel pain that you can do at home. What if this heel pain treatment was as simple as a shoe that would cradle your heel for complete comfort so you can forget your heel pain and have the energy to feel better and do more?

The revolutionary KURUSOLE™ technology built into every KURU shoe is so powerful for alleviating heel pain, it is patented. This proven technology is designed to work with your body so you can heal from your pain. Unlike other shoes that are flat, this simple technology hugs your heel for improved cushioning and relief from your heel pain.

I've been wearing Kuru shoes for at least 8 months. At the time I started wearing these shoes I had heel pain in my left foot. Now my heel pain is gone. I will always wear Kuru.

~Diane, NY

I tried every shoe advertised for heel pain and nothing helped. I've done every stretch recommended to no avail. I started wearing your shoe and have finally realized, my pain is about 99% gone.

Used my shoes from Kuru to go hiking in Colorado. I didn't feel any pain from my plantar fasciitis during hikes of several hours. I will order more Kuru shoes based on the success I have had.

Heel Pain Sources
Heel Spurs and Plantar Fasciitis

With the potential to help the millions suffering from plantar fasciitis, KURU is a leading solution for those with plantar fasciitis.

Severe heel pain in your foot is many times a result of either heel spurs or plantar fasciitis.

Heel spurs, which are small bone growths, may start out as small annoyances but quickly become debilitating. Many of the symptoms of heel spurs are similar to plantar fasciitis. In fact, 70% of those who suffer from plantar fasciitis also have a heel spur.

Heel Spur Help

Under X-Ray, heel spurs show up as small growths of bone under the heel. Bone spurs commonly form in the same area as where the plantar fascia connects to the heel bone.

Usually, sharp heel pain in the foot is the beginning stages of plantar fasciitis. Because heel spurs usually occur alongside plantar fasciitis, it's the inflammation of the plantar fascia that causes the pain, not the spur itself.

What Causes Heel Pain

The plantar fascia is a thick, fibrous connective tissue that runs from the heel to the ball of the foot. This strong and tight tissue helps support and maintain the shape of the arch. It is also one of the major transmitters of weight across the foot as you walk or run, which places tremendous stress on the plantar fascia.

Plantar Fasciitis

When you have plantar fasciitis, the plantar fascia becomes inflamed and degenerative. This makes normal activities quite painful.

Symptoms are usually at their worst in the morning after sleep. At that time, the plantar fascia is tight, so even simple movements stretch the plantar fascia, causing severe heel pain. As you begin to loosen the plantar fascia, the pain usually subsides, but often returns with prolonged standing or walking.

Usually, heel spurs form in response to plantar fasciitis. However, while 70 percent of patients with plantar fasciitis have a heel spur, X-rays show that almost 50 percent of patients with no symptoms of plantar fasciitis also have a heel spur. As a result, many people have heel spurs and do not even know it.

Power in Knowledge.
