13 Best Sandals for Plantar Fasciitis - A Style for Every Occasion

If from the moment you wake up in the morning, you are plagued by constant shooting pains in your heels; you are likely suffering from plantar fasciitis. This common foot ailment can knock you down hard when you’re least expecting it, and it takes a long time to go away. Luckily, it is possible to keep moving with the proper footwear. The best sandals for plantar fasciitis will not only feel good in the short term, but they’ll also help heal your feet over time.


Good Sandals for Plantar Fasciitis Sandals: What to Consider

Before browsing through an endless stream of spring and summer sandals, take into account these three factors that will make one pair preferable to another.

  1. Arch Support

When you have plantar fasciitis, it’s essential to wear shoes with extra cushioning and arch support. Good sandals for plantar fasciitis will alleviate and spread pressure across all parts of your foot, rather than letting it focus on your heel. Proper arch support will help prevent strain on your plantar fascia, which will help eliminate pain and heal any damage caused by plantar fasciitis.

  1. Wide Sizes

If your shoes constrict your feet, it’s going to exacerbate your plantar fasciitis and cause you additional pain. When sandal shopping, look for wider silhouettes that will allow your toes and the sides of your feet to breathe. The best sandals for plantar fasciitis will come in wide widths to allow you some wiggle room.

  1. Shock Absorption

One problem you’ll see with a lot of sandals is that the soles are thin and flat, providing no support or shock absorption. This is basically the same as walking barefoot, where the full impact of the ground is felt with every step. Instead, good plantar fasciitis sandals should have a thick rubber base that will absorb some of the impact while you walk.
