Are you suffering from heel pain when walking, running or standing? Plantar Fasciitis can be eased by wearing the correct Asics shoes, and in this article, we will talk you through the best Asics Shoes for Plantar Fasciitis by foot type. 

Plantar Fasciitis is a painful condition that affects the underside of the foot when standing, walking or running. The Plantar Fascia is a thick fibrous band of tissue that runs from the heel bone to the forefoot, helping to provide stability and integrity to the structure of the foot.

When standing, the Plantar Fascia is placed under tension, and the tension placed on the fascia becomes greater with walking and running. Treatment of Plantar Fasciitis is multifaceted, including taping, insoles, strengthening exercises and supportive footwear. This article will provide recommendations on the best Asics Shoes For Plantar Fasciitis based on our experiences with patients in our clinics.

Best Asics For Plantar Fasciitis

The best Asics Shoes for Plantar Fasciitis are the Asics GT-2000 and the Asics Gel-Kayano due to their supported heel cup, medial arch support, and FF Blast cushioned sole. We will explain this in more detail below. 

A Heel cup is the shape of the heel within the shoe, which is designed to hug your heel to provide additional stability. 

Medial arch support is a thicker heel on a shoe’s inner aspect that helps control pronation moments.

A cushioned sole can vary depending on the material, from spongy soft to firm and responsive.

Asics Shoes For Plantar Fasciitis: Asics GT-2000

We recommend the Asics GT-2000 11 for those with Plantar Fasciitis who have mild to moderate foot control. Their moderate arch support helps to control excess pronation moments associated with Plantar Fasciitis.

The Asics GT-2000 11 have Flytefoam technology that provides responsive cushioning that absorbs impact and helps to propulsive you forward through your big toe.

Asics Shoes For Plantar Fasciitis: Asics Gel Kayano

We recommend the Asics Gel-Kayano 29 for those with moderate to severe symptoms of Plantar Fasciitis due to their high levels of cushioning, deep heel cup and stable midsole.

The Deep heel cup helps to control the ankle joint when making contact with the floor. Alongside the medial arch support, it helps control excess pronation moments associated with the irritation of Plantar Fasciitis.

The stable midsole with midfoot support controls the foot through the running cycle to prevent over-stretching of the Plantar Fascia.
