While I was healing my Plantar Fasciitis, I wrote a post about what was helping me get relief as well as helping my foot to heal. In the comment section of that post, many readers also suffering from Plantar Fasciitis started listing brands of shoes that have helped them walk more comfortably. Shoes that are fashionable!
The list keeps growing and I thought it might be handy to list the suggestions in a post of its own. These shoes are not your typical ultra-conservative support shoe. These shoes have support and style!
Please note: I am not a medical practitioner; the advice I share is simply advice and not medical help. Also, note that besides the Birkenstocks listed below I have not personally tried any of these brands of shoes–although I do know that I know they have been helpful to others.
I am currently not suffering from Plantar Fasciitis, but I know it is still important that I wear good, supportive shoes wherever I go, whether just to the store or on a hike, to keep it from coming back. I do now walk barefoot in my home as I have heard that helps strengthen the muscles in the foot, but if I am standing for long periods of time while in the house, such as when I am cooking I go and grab a pair of supportive shoes.
Fashionable Summer Shoes For Plantar Fasciitis Sufferers
I love Birkenstocks! My mom bought me a pair in high school when I was experiencing some foot pain (can’t remember what type) and I was hooked. I have owned several pairs in the 20+ years since my high school years. They come in many different styles, but are primarily a summer shoe. My current favorites are Mayari sandal.
Mephisto makes a wide variety of different shoe styles including sandals (this style is similar to Birkenstocks, but they do have many other types of sandals), ankle boots (these would look good with jeans), walking shoes and more.
Are you a Plantar Fasciitis Sufferer? If so, have you found a brand of shoes that eases the pain and is also fashionable? I would love it if you shared it with my readers in the comment section below so that we can all benefit from your find.
