Plantar Fasciitis and Your Shoes

MANY PEOPLE WITH PLANTER FASCIITIS WEAR WRONG SHOES

When you suffer from Plantar Fasciitis, you shall realize the importance of choosing the right footwear, it’s also important to have shoes that are comfortable and allow even pressure distribution.

Well-fitting shoes should be long and wide enough to offer more space but not too loose either. If the shoes are short, you may get problems such as hammertoes, blisters, corns, and damaged nails. If shoes are not wide enough, your feet can be pressed and rub against the sides of the shoe which can lead to corns, calluses, blisters or bunions forming. Any form of damage or change to the skin or shape of the foot can lead to loss of surface skin and wounds and foot ulcers forming.
