Plantar Fasciitis Shoes for Women

Best Plantar Fasciitis Shoes for Women with Flat Feet

We recommend the Asics Gel-Kayano for women with Plantar Fasciitis and  Flat Feet 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 to control excess pronation moments that are 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.

Best Plantar Fasciitis Shoes for Women with High Arch Height

We recommend the Hoka Bondi 8 for women with Plantar Fasciitis and high arches due to their plush cushioning, neutral sole and 4mm heel drop.

The plush cushioning allows your feet to sink into the sole like walking on a cloud. The neutral sole means that there is no additional tilt or angles of support present in a stability trainer; this is important as the additional support of a stability shoe is not needed for a standard or high arch.

The 4mm heel drop maintains an even distribution of force across the feet and knees when standing.

Best Plantar Fasciitis Shoes for Women with Normal Arch Height

We recommend the New Balance X 880v12 for women with PLnatar Fasciitis that have a normal arch height.

The 880v12 has a 10mm help drop that helps to offload the calf when standing all day, and alongside their dual-layer midsole, it reduces the forces placed through the Plantar fascia.

The cushion soles provide pain relief for Plantar Fasciitis
