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 shoes for plantar fasciitis cushion and protect your heel.
Your plantar fascia runs beneath the sole of your foot, and these ligaments take on a lot of stress and strain daily. This wear and tear causes swelling and damage, and the inflammation that results 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!
Plantar fasciitis shoes for women 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!"
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.
If you have plantar fasciitis or other foot problems, orthotic shoes may be able to help. Wearing orthopedic shoes or insoles (orthotics) is a simple and efficient way to straighten the foot naturally. The newest space-age technology is used in our ULTIMATE INSOLES to conform to the unique contour of your foot over time.
Ice and Rest
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.
