Foot pain is a widespread problem, and plantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of heel pain. Your heels take on a lot of stress, so the best plantar fasciitis shoes for women cushion and protect your heel.
Your plantar fascia runs along the bottom of your foot. These ligaments experience stress and strain daily, and this damage and swelling leads to pain and stiffness. Plantar fasciitis pain is most often a sharp, stabbing sensation in the heel—but you may also feel pain in the sole of your foot.
This painful condition usually flares up as an “overuse injury,” like a sudden increase in physical activity—or a weekend of sports after a week of sitting. Fortunately, plantar fasciitis shoes can help!
The best women’s shoes for plantar fasciitis cup your heel to cushion each step, and offer support from heel to arch to ankle. But your plantar fascia covers your whole sole, so good shoes for plantar fasciitis support the full length of your foot.
Unlike anything else, our patented KURUSOLE technology dynamically flexes to redirect impact and protect your heel. We include this game-changing tech in every pair of KURU shoes, so you can find the best shoes for plantar fasciitis pain relief in the style of your choice!
No More Foot Pain!
"I work as a nurse which means 12+ hours on my feet. Prior to buying these shoes, my plantar fasciitis would flare-up, and I would have foot pain at the end of almost every shift. Now that I have these shoes, I haven't had any pain! They are so comfortable, and I have even received compliments on how cute they are. Love the colors! Thank you!"
Plantar fasciitis is more common among women than men, and women generally experience more impact to their quality of life. It’s not exactly clear why women are at a greater risk for plantar fasciitis, but one factor could be fashion! High heels or tight fitting shoes increase the strain on your plantar fascia. Pregnancy may also play a part, as rapid weight gain is a common cause of PF.
How can you avoid or alleviate plantar fasciitis?
Stretch on a Regular Basis
The plantar fascia is relieved by keeping your calf muscles loose. Stand on the edge of a step with your weight on the balls of your feet to stretch your calves and Achilles tendon. Bend and straighten your knees for 25 seconds. Whenever tightness develops, perform up to five repetitions.
Ice the arch of your foot for 15-20 minutes after light stretching. Wearing KURUSOLE Technology to keep your feet naturally aligned and minimize pressure on the plantar fascia while moving throughout your day might help in the recovery process.
"I was diagnosed with plantar fasciitis about 2 years ago and the pain was excruciating, I couldn’t find any shoes that relieved the pain. I tried the chiropractor and physical therapy and nothing worked. Then I found these gems and my pain has subsided! These are truly amazing and life changing!!"
No More Plantar Fasciitis Pain
"I tried my first pair of these shoes a couple of years ago. I stood on hard floors for work the majority of the day and would walk 3-4 miles several days a week for exercise. I had significant pain from Plantar Fasciitis. Within the first couple of days (less than a week of wearing them) the pain was gone. The difference has been unbelievable. These are the only athletic shoes I wear now for exercising and when I will be standing for any length of time. I also told an older relative about them who was dealing with pain from Plantar Fasciitis. He felt so much relief from his pain, we continued to order him both KURU athletic shoes and boot styles."
