Plantar Fasciitis is one of the most common conditions that affect the heel bone. Women are 2.5 times more likely to develop Plantar Fasciitis than men. The symptoms of Plantar Fasciitis are worse in the morning, and after exercise, and while there are few visible signs of Plantar Fasciitis, it is often very tender to touch the heel bone.

The best treatment options for Plantar Fasciitis include strengthening exercises, insoles, stretches and shoes. This article will provide recommendations for the best Plantar Fasciitis Shoes for Women.

Best Plantar Fasciitis Shoes for Women

Best Plantar Fasciitis Shoes for Women with Flat Feet

We recommend the Asics Gel-Kayano 29 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 control excess pronation moments associated with Plantar Fasciitis pain.

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 force distribution across the feet to reduce plantar fasciitis pain.

Best Plantar Fasciitis Shoes for Women with Normal Arch Height

We recommend the New Balance X 880v13 for women with Plantar Fasciitis and a normal arch height.

The 880v13 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 during daily activities such as walking and running.
