What should I do if I have been suffering with plantar fasciitis, what shoes would be a good choice?
Superfeet: The type of insert that you should get depends on your foot type; whether you have high or low arches and how much you pronate. However, superfeet has a variety of inserts, and some are custom moldable (heat moldable). Custom orthotics are always best, but can be expensive, so i would try the superfeet first. You could also benefit from shoes with a rigid heel counter. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

Is it true that wearing old worn shoes can contribute to plantar fasciitis and wearing new shoes helps?
Sole Sacrifice..: If you are having symptoms consistent with plantar fasciitis, shoes and the condition of the shoes are a major consideration in the remedy. There are other considerations that are equally important, but changing worn out shoes is a must, and many times the only thing necessary. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Support.: Orthotics are a great addition to "professional" shoes. Even when not in an athletic shoe, you want to go for support and stability. Some brands to try (but remember, this is not an exhaustive list, and everyone's feet are different, so these may not work for you): ecco, born, merrell, naturalizer, aerosoles. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Can plantar fasciitis heal itself if it is just a minor case of it? I got it by wearing the wrong shoes. I have normal arches but shoe caused it.
What is the absolutely best way to treat/cure plantar fasciitis? I was diagnosed with plantar fasciitis and now use orthotics in my gym shoes. I also try icing and stretching, but i can't seem to eliminate symptoms. I am athletic and teach group fitness

Rest, supportive insoles, rx orthotics, otc anti-inflammatories (like aleve), prescription nsaid's, steroid injections, prp injections, physical therapy, etc... If all else fails... Surgery. ...Read moreSee 6 more doctor answers
Whats the best insoles and shoe for plantar fasciitis foot arch pain? Don't have benefits for orthotics so wanting to try a cheaper option first.
Not so easy.: A very sensible approach. The problem is that the arch support design is really dependent on your foot structure. Without knowing that detail, advice on which support to use is difficult and many times wrong. Some supports are for higher arches and some for lower arches. Some are more flexible than others. Shoes need to have a removable insole so that a better fitting one can be fit. ...Read more
Support.: Athletic shoes with supportive soles will be best. You should not be able to twist or wring the shoe, and when pushing from front to back, it should only bend at the widest part of your foot--that's where your foot bends, at the ball. The shoe should also have a firm wrap around your heel, holding your rearfoot in a solid upright position. A good supportive set of orthotics are also helpful. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
