Comforting Steps for Plantar Fasciitis Relief

Among the most common causes of aches and pains of the feet is plantar fasciitis. This condition results from inflammation of the plantar fascia – the ligament that connects the heel and toes. Plantar fasciitis is common in people past middle age, in anyone who is on their feet for long periods of time, in those who are overweight or those who wear ill-fitting or worn-out shoes.

There are a variety of ways to treat the condition, including surgery, steroid injections and orthopedic boots. Many plantar fasciitis sufferers, however, can get the unique gift of sweet relief simply by switching to shoes designed to help alleviate the symptoms.
We feature a large selection of podiatrist-designed footwear for both men and women to combat the effects of plantar fasciitis. Along with these shoes in styles that complement your day wear, we also recommend slippers that provide the support and comfort you need even while relaxing at home.
