Peroneal Tendonitis Exercises
Read More >
Peroneal Tendonitis is often caused by poor control of the hindfoot and midfoot. Alongside rehabilitation exercises, footwear plays a key role in resolving peroneal tendon pain. In this article, we will provide recommendations for the best running shoes for Peroneal Tendonitis.
The Peroneal Tendons help to turn the foot outwards and assist with the push-off phase of gait. They act as a key stabiliser of the ankle throughout the gait cycle, and providing the correct running shoes can reduce their workload.

The best running shoes for Peroneal Tendonitis have a deep heel cup and supportive cushioning.
The deep heel cup helps to stabilise the ankle on landing to reduce excess movement of the subtalar joint and reduce the workload on the Peroneal Tendons.
Supportive cushioning helps to absorb the impact of hitting the ground
We recommend the Asics GT-2000 11 Running shoes for Peroneal Tendonitis due to their Rearfoot GEL technology, deep heel cup and FF BLAST technology.
The FF BLAST technology and Rearfoot GEL technology help to absorb impact when landing, while the deep heel cup helps to stabilise the ankle.
We recommend the Hoka Clifton 9 Running Shoes for Peroneal Tendonitis due to their plush cushioning, low heel drop and rocker sole.
The 5mm heel drop encourages an even distribution of force across the foot, while the plush cushioning helps to absorb the impact of initial contact during the running cycle.
The rocker sole ensures a smooth push-off phase to reduce an overload of the Peroneal tendons.
