Best Shoes for Heel Spurs

The best shoes for Heel Spurs have a deep and cushioned heel cup with a cushioned sole. The deep heel cup reduces the risk of friction of the heel spur against the back of the shoe, while the cushioning provides some protection. The cushioned sole helps to absorb the impact from the ground when you walk.

We recommend the Hoka Bondi 8 shoes for heel spurs due to their neutral sole, plush cushioning and wide fit.

The neutral sole means there is an even distribution of force on your heel spur, and the plush cushioning provides shock absorption when you walk or run.

The 4mm heel drop ensures an even distribution of force from the back to the front of the shoe.

We recommend the Asics Kayano 29 shoes for heel spurs if you have flat feet due to their medial arch support, deep heel cup and FF Blast cushioning.

The medial arch support helps to control the pronation moments associated with flat feet and heel spurs. The deep heel cups help to stabilise the ankle joint.

The FF Blast cushioning works as an excellent shock absorber to reduce the pressure on your heel spur during all activities.
