What can you do to alleviate the pain associated with plantar fasciitis? Footwear can be a starter. According to Dr. Grace Torres-Hodges, a Pensacola, FL-based podiatrist, while there is not a specific shoe type that addresses plantar fasciitis, some important things to look for involve rearfoot support including deep heel cups, firm heel counters, flared heels, good cushioning, and arch support, whether it’s a sneaker, loafer, or oxford. “Bottom line,” she said, “that knocks out your flip-flops and sandals.”

Dr. Torres-Hodges also recommends shopping for shoes later in the day when feet tend to swell. And while these may seem like footwear basics, she recommends patients not rely on the size of their last pair of shoes, since manufacturer sizing differs. “Get both feet measured, and buy for the larger foot,” she emphasized. Next, try on shoes with socks or the hose you expect to wear, as well as any orthotic devices that have been prescribed, since these can alter the fit and comfort of a shoe.
