If any of these scenarios sound familiar, you might be experiencing the symptoms of plantar fasciitis. The plantar fascia is a ligament that connects your heel bone to your toes. When it gets strained, it can get swollen and inflamed, and your heel or the sole of your foot hurts when you walk or stand. It’s a common affliction in middle-aged people, people who are overweight, or people of any age who are on their feet a lot because of their profession or their pastimes.
It’s a good idea to replace your shoes if you suffer from plantar fasciitis. With fall in full swing, we have a selection of seasonal shoes that will look great with autumn clothing and give your feet the unique gift of sweet relief.
These lady’s athletic shoes help combat the effects of plantar fasciitis with a comfortably soft, stabilizing orthotic footbed that provides superior arch support. Recipient of the prestigious American Podiatric Medical Association’s Seal of Acceptance, the shoes have mesh uppers, strong heel counters, lightweight CME midsoles, TPR midfoot stabilizers, and resilient rubber outsoles with a non-slip pattern. The positive effects of these shoes will be felt when they are worn at least a few hours per day for two weeks.
These athletic-shoe-style mules help relieve discomfort of plantar fasciitis using the same principles. They have a lightweight, breathable leather and mesh design to provide extra comfort, even when worn all day.
For gentlemen, these moccasins will help relieve plantar fasciitis pain. The podiatrist-designed orthotic footbeds have deep heel cups that stabilize and realign feet to a neutral position for those who over-pronate, a common cause of plantar fasciitis. The outsoles are made from durable, rubber with treads for superior traction. The footbeds are covered with soft microfiber and the uppers are made from supple, full-grain leather.
Finally, at the end of the day, relief can be found with these men’s herringbone slippers. Like our other shoes for plantar fasciitis sufferers, they are podiatrist-designed. Twin flexible gores give a comfortable easy on/off fit and the breathable wool-blend uppers keep feet warm. The flexible soles are made from resilient non-slip rubber, enabling indoor/outdoor wear. With the holidays coming, these would make a welcomed and unique gift for any gentleman known to say, “Oh, my aching feet.”
